Scarce Edison Gem Phonograph Model A, B, & C 2/4 Minute Conversion Upgrade Kit

Here is a scarce original Edison Gem Phonograph 2/4 Minute Conversion Kit. Edison offered these upgrade kits to existing Edison Phonograph owners to allow them to be able to play the newly introduced 4-minute cylinder records. By purchasing this kit, the phonograph owner was able to become fully up-to-date in terms of the latest technological advancements and play both the older 2-minute records and the new 4-minute Amberols. Of all the conversion kits, the Gem kit is considered the most unusual to find today.

This kit is in great condition. All parts are present to convert a machine, including:

- Gear train

- Extended carriage rod to allow the gear train to be attached

As can be seen from the photos, all parts are clean and only show light signs of wear. All you will need is a 4-minute reproducer to play the longer-playing cylinders.

Overall, a very nice Standard Conversion Kit all ready to install on your Model A, B & C Edison Gem.

Shipping: $6.95 Shipping + Insurance. Please contact us for international shipping quotes.
