This instrument is a TIME MACHINE! It is absolutely pristine, with all-original components and everything in excellent condition. It looks as fresh as the day it was made. The Harmony plays special 78 rpm records that have a 3/4" spindle size. You see them displayed here next to the machine. You are getting eleven of these wonderfful discs as part of this package. Please note the original paint flower horn. Harmony horns were always blue. And this blue horn is astoundingly well presrerved.

We want to stress the outstanding condition of this instrument. Original cabinet finish and decal. All components original. Every aspect is fresh, clean and crisp. The oak cabinet with its Byzantine-inspired turned pillars fairly beams. As always, we took the spring-powered motor down to pieces -- plus we put in a powerful new mainspring, cleaned, tuned and adjusted everything.

Here we see the bright and beautiful components that produce powerful reproduction from the record.  Of course, we have rebuilt and painstakingly adjusted the soundbox. What do you get from other Internet sellers? A slap-sash "doll-up" and inept, bumbling jury-rigging. The outside of the blue horn is just as lovely as the interior!

One of the Midwestern brands of disc talking machine at the turn of the 20th century was the "Harmony," sold by the Great Northern Manufacturing Co. of Chicago.  Great Northern had begun by distributing chinaware to the retail trade, to be used as premiums.  Soon, however, it entered the talking machine business, and stayed in it for 10 years. Harmony instruments were in fact designed and built by the Columbia Phonograph Co., who were justly famous in their own right as high quality manufacturers. 

This amazingly fresh and bright "Harmony" is about the most pleasing, plump, peppy and perfectly balanced instrument you can find!  The outstanding condition of all the components makes this delightful instrument all the better. Our immaculate antique talking machine will bring a smile to the face of anyone. This instrument will play one 10" diameter 78 rpm record per winding, the motor is strong and reliable. Do not mistake our carefully tuned, painstakingly cleaned and regulated instrument for the junk you find on eBay -- our machines work properly and sound great! 

Price: $995.00 US, plus s/h (NY State residents must add tax if applicable.).
