Columbia Type A Phonograph

This is my favorite phonograph in my collection. It is the first phonograph put on the market that was financially affordable for the general public. It is in original condition, the reproducer is a reproduction as is the horn. It is playing "Cotten" a cakewalk with banjo by Fred Van Epps. The Type A was revealed in the Christmas catalog of Sears-Roebuck in 1896.
