Standard Talking Machine Co. (columbia) Type Au Phonograph:
A very nice Standard Talking Machine Company AU. This was made by the Columbia Phonograph Company and is exactly the same as the Columbia AU except it has the 9/16" diameter spindle for the records with the larger center hole. This phonograph is in excellant condition. It runs extremely well, smoothly, and plays the 7 inch record all the way through easily with no loss of power. It plays the records loud and clear. The reproducer works well. The motor is nice and clean as can bee seen in the pictures. Cosmetically it is also very nice. The paint is nice and the decorative striping and leafing is also still in tact and looks good on the base and horn support arm.
The brass elbow is very good with no cracks or dents and fits nicely on the horn. The horn is also great condition and is correct as it has the detent which fits the brass elbow perfectly. The horn support arm is also very good. It has no cracks or any little fissure lines in it. This has the little 7 inch turntable. It comes with the record shown in the picture. The record is poor condition and does not play well, but is good for display. I have about a dozen records for it that i will put up for sale later after I dig them out. Several of those play quite well.
This is a great little machine that displays and plays well.Shipping will be by fedex. Ignore the shipping.
