Columbia BF - an unusual item - with its crank and reproducer.

 


Note the oak cabinet - unwaxed, unpolished, unmodified.

 


The original belt on the original nickeled bedplate.

 


A rear view.

 


The four-spring mechanism is more powerful than most of what Edison built!

 


The oak cabinet - front.

 


The cabinet - rear.

 

This Columbia BF plays the standard size and the extra long Columbia records. This example is getting harder to find today: an all-original model with the factory belt! We decided not to 'restore' this instrument so that you could decide how best to preserve it. The motor (a powerful unit!), cabinet, and bedplate mechanism are all as-they-were. The reproducer is included too! This phonograph can be supplied with a horn, and then all you need to do is lubricate, reattach the belt (or a replica belt), and play away.
