Please do not call "vinyl"our beloved 78 or 80 rpm records; vinyl is the material of the LPs. Few late 78s were pressed in vinyl, but they wore out very fast. I hear my records with a 1925 Victrola Credenza X (electric) and with a Brunswick Ultona consolette for the 80 rpm, the Edison Diamond and the Pathé. I have also an Edison 39 machine for the 4-minute cylinders. If you like to chat about gramophones (and Bix as well) just e-mail me.
