Columbia Graphophone Cylinder Record Player w/ Horn Picture(s) and Description:
I have for sale a nice little Columbia Graphophone Cylinder Record Player with a small nickel plated horn. This record player has some minor corrosion spots from storage through the years, but in general has a nice patina and looks great for it's age. The size is 12 inches long, 7 inches wide and 6 inches tall. The wooden case is in excellent condition; there is a little delamination of the wood on the bottom, but that doesn't distract from its good looks. The horn is about 7 inches in diameter on the end and is nickel plated with no corrosion. Everything is in working order except it needs a new needle. It runs and tracks the records as it should and makes a little bit of sound, so the diaphragm is intact and working. I think if a new needle was installed it would play beautifully. This isn't your standard steel needle like a round record phonographs... the new needle will need to be installed by a professional with experience working with these machines. Its small size makes it a wonderful decoration for an entertainment center, built-in shelves or a small table. I've had it on display for many years and kept it covered with a cloth unless we were entertaining. I've had many comments about what a nice looking little machine it is and always wanted to have the needle fixed because everyone wants to hear it play. I just never took the time to have it repaired; I have an Edison record player that we would start up when friends would ask. Shipping will be $20 for this item as it will have to be packed extremely well to avoid any damage. Insurance will be included with the shipping costs. I have included many pictures, so have a good look to see every view. In one of the pictures, you will see a little thumbscrew and I have no idea where it goes; there doesn't seem to be any place for its use, but I have included it in case it is needed in the future. We hope you are having/had a wonderful fourth of July weekend! God bless and thank you for viewing my auction.
