    Circa: 1915 to 1929

    This is an original vintage Amberola 50 phonograph by Thomas Edison. Serial number: SM-22520. The Amberola 50 was produced from June of 1915 until October of 1929. This model is slightly larger than the earlier model, the Amberola 30. It measures approximately 15 3/8" (39.1 cm) high, 15" (38.1 cm) wide, & 19 3/4" (50.2 cm) deep measuring from it's widest points. It weighs 36lbs 3oz (16.42 kg). The cabinet was beautifully made with quarter-sawed oak. The front grill on this phonograph is a reproduction of the original.

    This once very popular machine has a double spring motor capable of playing 5 4-minute records per winding. It has a highly reliable, heavy-duty helical gear drive. The Reproducer is a Diamond Model C, the only option for this phonograph. These phonographs were designed to play four minute records only. Edison claimed that the diamond stylus was the perfect match for the bright blue celluloid BA Edison brand records. He used a diamond instead of a needle so that the owners did not have to constantly replace needles. The only records that should be played on this machine are the Blue Amberols or the 4-minute Indestructibles. Other records may be damaged by this machine.
