More about the Victor IV

This stunning Victor IV delights the eye with its robust mahogasnt cabinet. The original paint and decals on the horn.  It is crisp, and clean, and clear, and classy. Dazzling, delightful, bewitching, ravishing! No other seller has the 52 year experience and expertise that we put into our instruments every day. We have examined closely the work of other dealers, they are nice people, but many do not even have enough knowledge to understand the mistakes they are making.

The black paint and gold decoration of the horn have survived very well, and the original horn decal is there too!

One things that most other sellers do not understand is color. We have returned this solid mahogany cabinet to its authentic rich, russet hue. The material we use are the materials that were employed back in the day -- no polyirethane at phonophan!

The gold filigree on the back-bracket is bright and original. Note also the patent decal on the horn. Of course, we rebuilt the soundbox to produce sweet, loud and clear music.Why do the talking machines of other dealers sound so tinny and shrill?  Because they do not have the expertise or the inclination to  adjust the soundbox correctly. At phonophan, 52 years of experience can be seen -- and heard..

The motor, like the rest of the machine, has survived intact.  We cleaned it, and installed two new mainsprings to insure that you have a good-running, reliable instrument. Phonophan gives you the highest quality instruments and restorations, all work done under the personal supervision of Tim Fabrizio, who has a degree in Fine Arts, has devoted his life to painstaking  restoration work, and has written eight books on the subject of antique phonographs. 

Inside the cabinet is this schematic.

Under the cabinet, this patent notice. The IV sold for $50, a hefty sum at the time.

Most Victor talking machines were constructed of oak. Reasonably few were mahogany because mahogany was more expensive. This makes the Victor IV a rarity, and the look of it is undeniably alluring. If you want to experience what a Victor Talking Machine was like when it was new -- get this one! See how it shines! This incredibly pristine, excellent playing, sleekly beautiful Victor is a delight to the eyes AND ears.
