Four Minute Wax Amberols

Four Minute Wax Amberols

Categories: Accessories

As a progression from the usual two minute variety of cylinders, which were too short for many arrangements of songs and music, phonograph cylinder makers, in about 1908, produced four minute which Edison referred to as “Amberols”. The longer format cylinder meant that phonographs had, initially, to be provided with a new gear-box and a different reproducer to play them. The Amberols lasted until 1912 when the much superior Blue Amberols were produced. The Amberols wee not a great success and were damaged very easily, however if used carefully they often play very well.
Here is a list of some of the Amberols I have in stock. All are in their original green cases and are in good condition.

I am selling these at £3 per cylinder plus p&p. Email me if any interest you
