Blue Amberol Phonograph Cylinders

Two different Blue Amberol boxes

I have a number of Blue Amberol phonograph cylinders in stock, in good condition. These records are from the early part of the 20th century and were a great improvement on the original wax cylinders that played for only two minutes. The Blue Amberols played for four minutes and were made of celluloid and much less fragile. Early phonographs needed a bolt on gear-box to play these new cylinders at the correct speed and a finer sapphire stylus to engage with the narrower grooves. Later phonographs were made to play four minute cylinders only, but despite the improvements in quality and especially in the content of the recordings, the introduction of disc recordings meant that cylinder recordings and machines were fazed out by about 1920.
I am offering these cylinder records at £5 each. Please check the current list as the number available has now been considerably reduced
