THOS. A. EDISON
HAS HONORED US
Thomas A. Edison, the master inventor, through the Edison Laboratories,
has granted us the privilege of an Edison dealership for Edgefield and vicin
ity. We have become an outlet to the public for one of the most wonderful
and successful products of the Edison Laboratories
The New Edison
"The Phonograph With a Soul"
No doubt you have heard several different kinds,
styles and makes of phonographs, talking machines,
etc. Suppose, when you had listened to a record of
some great singer, some one should have asked you if
you thought you could distinguish between the rec
ord you had just listened to and the singer who made
the record, if you heard them side by side. You
would be highly indignant, would you not?
Could Tell Voice From Edison Re-Creation.
Would you feel indignant if we were to tell you
that you cannot distinguish the voices of living artists
or the music of human-played instruments from the
New Edison's Re-Creation of them? You might be
justified in feeling so until we confirm the statement
with the information that upwards of a million music
lovers and the music of critics of more than a thousand
representative American newspapers have admitted
that they could not discover the minutest difference
between living artists and The Edison's Re-Creation
of their art. These music lovers and critics have
heard thirty Edison artists put the New Edison to
the supreme and conclusive test of direct comparison
by singing or playing side by side with its Re-Crea
tion of their voices or the music of their instruments.
COME-HEAR FOR YOURSELF.
If such testimony does not convince you, come to
our store and hear the New Edison yourself. If it
does convince you, come and let the New Edison
confirm your conviction.
Ed?50n Re-Creations cover a magnificent range of
music; the musical masterpieces of the world ren
dered by the supreme artists of the world ; immortal
melodies played by individual artists of renown or by
famous organizations of musicians ; old favorites and
new favorites of all kinds and classes of music-all of
these are found among Edison Re-Creations.
New Edison Stands alone.
Discriminating musicians and music lovers of the
highest culture and refinement acknowledge that the
New Edison is without a peer among sound-repro
Music lovers of Edgefield are most cordially in
vited to attend demonstrations of the New Edison,
which will be given daily in our Edison Department.
