These machines are amazing, they are very rare and the sound is something you would not expect from an acoustic 78 rpm lateral cut record machine. They were made in the 1930's to be the best, and they were, some think they are ugly, but they grow on you. The horn is huge with a 23 inch bell made entirely of papier mache. The reproducer , I have two, an Expert two spring and the 4 spring model, I think they both sound much the same, maybe a bit better with the four spring. If you would like to hear one play I have uploaded videos to YouTube.
