Blue Amberol Phonograph Cylinders

Blue Amberol Phonograph Cylinders

Categories: Accessories

I have a large number of Blue Amberol phonograph cylinders in stock, mostly in their original boxes and 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 for the majority of cylinders and £8 each for the scarcer “Fox-trot” cylinder, plus p&p. I am very lax about updating these lists, so they may occasionally be inaccurate!
