The Edison Amberola was developed in competition to the Victor Victrola. Both machines have inside horns in answer to the housewives' complaints about dusting the horns on the smaller machines! This insturment plays 4-minute cylinders. The tone arm remains stationary, but the mandrel (cylinder holder) moves while the cylinder plays. Original cost: $125.00.
