EDISON CYLINDERS & EDISON RECORDS

Thomas Edison should perhaps be more famous for inventing the phonograph than he should be for being acclaimed being the inventor of electricity, which he was not.  History was not kind to Mr. Tesla, but as Paul Harvey says . . "that's another story".  In any event, Edison invented and manufactured wonderful phonograph machines.  The earliest used wax cylinders and were recorded in 2 or 4 minute versions.  We have had hundreds of requests for cylinders for these players and were fortunate enough to get a continuing number of them.  We came across 600 of these 4 minute cylinders and these cylinders generally sold for $ 10 - $ 15 each depending on the recording material.  All of our cylinders have been the 4 minute ones.  You will find these cylinders every once in a while in antique stores in various places and we find prices ranging to $ 20 each for ones that are not damaged. We sold all the 600, but just got in some new ones.  All are in playing condition and have sleeves.

Current Stock - The following list is all 4 minute cylinders unless so noted and come with a sleeve, all cylinders are in good
condition and are playable except where noted.  All Edison cylinders are $ 12.00.  6 or more are $ 10.00 each.  To order fill in
the order entry form at the bottom of the page.  Please put title name and Edison number if it was given in the space. 
Just fill in all the blanks and don't forget your credit card data.  This is a secure order form.
