the horn --- Columbia also acquired inventory from the defunct
Hawthorne & Sheble Manufacturing Co., a major maker of high-quality
talking machine horns and other components. Following the "waste
not, want not" principle to the letter, Columbia incorporated the
horns, and adapted many of the H&S components into the instruments
it produced. Here we find the unmistakeable bright nickel plating
and spiraling sprays of roses characteristic of Hawthorne & Sheble.
We have taken special care to skillfully rebuild and regulate the soundbox (needle head) to produce big, bold and brilliant music. Where do our competitors fail? One significant factor is the soundbox. We have seen every kind of jury-rigged nonesense that other dealers have perpetrated. And we have fixed their mistakes. From other dealers you get mistakes because nobody else has our 50 years of experience.
The original banner decal. The original factory finish is extraordinary.
On the side panel, this original "shield" decal trumpets Columbia's success in the market.
The Columbia Type BWT Disc Graphophone -- a charming, authentic antique talking machine -- look how it shines! What is the best feature? -- ALL of them. How does it play? BEAUTIFULLY!
