The Columbia Graphophone Model AB, called the "MacDonald", is a rare unusual cylider phonograph which was designed to play 5 inch diameter "Concert" cylinders. The large mandrel can be removed to reveal a conventional mandrel for playing ordinary 2 inch records. The "Concert" cylinders were bulky, expensive, and fragile. This instrument did not last long in the marketplace.
