Description

Columbia BG Cylinder Phonograph in Mahogany Case. Beautiful restored rare, hard to find model “BG”. The “BG” model was one of the few models offered in a mahogany case trying to cater to upper class taste. The upper works are all nickeled. The long mandrel is capable of playing the new “3” minute records offered by Columbia. This machine is only capable of playing the 2 minute records. Although originally capable of playing both two and four minute cylinders, the gearing on the 4 minute side was damaged at one point in it’s life, it’s next to impossible to find or make any today. It plays the two minute cylinders great! It comes with a reproduction nickel horn. The 3 minute Columbia tube doesn’t come with the machine. Used as a prop. See pictures for more details! Any questions, feel free to ask!
