A Perfect Musical
Guarded as jealously as Stradivari
guarded his knowledge of how to pro
duce the transcendent tone found in his
Molins, Thomas A. Edison keeps in
violate the secrets of the perfect RE
CREATION of sound.
Years of unwearying toil and count
less experiments showed the way to
make a perfect sound recreating instru
ment. It is the Edison Diamond Disc
Phonograph, the OFFICIAL LAB
ORATORY MODEL a scientific
and artistic accomplishment, lifted out
of the realm of the talking machine into
that of the finest musical instruments.
The herald of a new era in music, since when performing
side by side with the living artists who made the records it
played, cool, calculating, skeptical critics were not able to
distinguish between artist and instrument.
To design a cabinet worthy the embodiment of such an in
strument, it was necessary to draw on the richest resources of
furniture history. What more fitting than to adopt the ideas
of the master designer, Thomas Chippendale.
