Listing for:
Columbia AQ


Columbia AQ from the side. An unusual contraption, then and now.

 


The horn and reproducer are unique to this model, and these are absolutely original.

 


The horn is clean and straight, inside and out.

 


Detail of the hand pinstriping and Graphophone label.

 

The Columbia AQ is a scarce trivet-design phonograph launched around 1904 to provide a cheap model for the bargain crowd, with the idea that phonograph sales would boost record sales. Everything about this machine is a little different from anything else... the mechanism is basically a Columbia Q, but the feedscrew, horn assembly, reproducer, and base are all unique. This machine plays (not well... although probably as well as it ever played!) and is in excellent cosmetic condition. This is certainly a rare bird for your trophy shelf!
