Antique Trumpetone Phonograph A Very Uncommon Addition To Your Collection:
A very scarce addition to your phonograph collection. This TrumpeTone phonograph is in great condition for a machine of this age. Pat. date 1918. As you can see the case is small about 8.5 x 9.5 inches with a 10 inch platter that over hangs the case, the felt appears to be original with the metal grommet at center over the center post/mandrel. The plated handle on the rear, the crank, speed control and brake are in very good condition and are original to the machine. The unique floating horn is over 4'' wide at the bell and approx. 6'' long, it is aluminum with only very minor flaws. The pivot post and pivot tube are original also, as is the reproducer. The reproducer will need new gaskets and a needle set screw. The mica diaphragm does not appear damagedand all other parts are present and functional on this reproducer.The motor gears and spring work well. The finish on the wood case is as it should be, old and crackled a bit, just like you like to find them, original to the machine.
This TrumpeTone will add something truly unique to your collection. This item is offered as described, as is.
