I've got an old set of Ediphone dictation machines
that are simply gathering dust in my basement. I've contacted a couple of vintage music resellers, and no one seems interested in them as collectibles. I'd be delighted to bring them in to the factory to share and play, but I don't want to bring them in if they're just going to sit there, take up space and gather different dust. I've got three separate units, but I don't think I have the shaver/cleaner unit, I think I have two recorders (for dictation) and one player (for the secretarial transcriber). I do not know how well they work, and I am not sure if I have any recordable cylinders, but as seen in the photo at the link above they are pretty cool vintage technology. Steampunk photo shoot? Retro audio effects?
