Very well laid out and informative website. Very well built
May 28, 2017: William Klutts (bubbaklutts@gmail.com)
Wonderful website. It has already answered many questions. Thanks
April 13, 2017: John Ebensperger (jebenspe@twcny.rr.com)
Thankful to find this website. I received an Edison Standard Model D in a dust cardboard box. I feel strongly the need to bring this back to working order. Unfortunately I'm a complete novice regarding these phonographs. I think I found a good place to start.

My Edison Standard Phonograph hadn't worked for over a year. Finding John on the internet, I arranged to have it fixed. In a very short time, it was repaired, working better than ever. Not only that, but John, using his teaching expertise, showed me how the machine worked, how to perform the proper maintenance, and gave me a general education of antique phonographs. He is truly a gentleman and a scholar. Thanks, John

John has been a tremendous help in restoring my Edisons and Victrolas. His workmanship is beyond comparison. His prices are more than reasonable. He is a great resource for antique phonograph collectors.

John repaired my c reproducer and it is perfect. Over the 20 plus years that I have known John he has done excellent work at affordable prices. That is hard to find these days. Thanks John and crew!

A couple of weeks ago I was in Oklahoma and purchased a Victor VV-IV for a great price. It appeared to work and looked good. It has had a few issues, however John Nagy has been ultimately helpful in solving my issues and finding 100 year old parts that I needed. He is a great advisor and mentor for someone new to playing with a century old phonograph. Can't say enough good about John. Thanks for all your help.

It was a pleasure to discover the Phonographs.org website. The turnaround time of my two recent orders was very rapid and very well packaged. Of special interest was finding a tone arm and reproducer that could not be located elsewhere. And, it is a perfect fit for my old phonograph. John’s helpful comments are truly appreciated.

Hi ,John You did a wonderful job on fixing my Edison N reproducer. Im sure we will be doing business again the level of your work is superb. Thank You
August 31, 2015: Mark Perullo (perullomark@yahoo.com)
Not only did John fix my concert reproducer, he fixed it over the phone without any charge!! He could easily have had me mail it in and I would have been happy to pay the bill, but he knew I could fix it on my own and took the time to tell me how. That is a level of customer service and honesty you rarely see these days. Thank You so Much John !!
August 23, 2015: Bill Nichols (wnichint@aol.com)
In late July I took my Edison Amberol 30 to John to be repaired. He did a masterful job! When I took it over it was not playing. Now after John's work on it, it is playing better than ever before. Thanks, John!!!

It has two horns with it and 44 cylinders. I remember my dad playing it not long ago so I'm pretty sure it still works and is in very good condition. I've been told to put a reserve on it but I don't have any idea what it's worth. Can someone please help me? Thank you.

January 24, 2009: Barry (dishguy@roadrunner.com)
I have a recently purchased Edison Standard. I bought a replacement witches cap horn and have replaced the belt. My problem is, when the needle is lowered onto the cylinder (with horn attached), this causes the machine to stop (obviously the horn is a little too heavy). It is the correct 14" horn and I'm unsure why this is happening. I also wonder if there should be some sort of gasket to hold the horn in place, since it fits loosely, Any advice would be appreciated.

I have inherited an Edison Standard Phonograph and cylinders. We know it used to play but suspect the needle is worn out. I am not an expert. Are we able to buy replacement needles and refit them or is it more complicated than that? If replacement needles are available where can we buy them please?

Recently my dad died and my mother and I are trying to liquidate some of their antiques, she has a Edison Fireside Phonograph Model A and I need to come up with a value and maybe some places to sell it. Can anyone give me some sites or information on where to look for a value of the unit and locations to list for sale. I appreciate any information. Thank you in advance.

I just received a linear length of belting material to replace the belt on my Edison Standard Model D. Can some one tell me the best way to close a loop made from the correct size belting. Cement type? Technique? etc. Thanks

Great site... an embarrassment of riches! Here I am, running out of what I used to think was in inexhaustible supply of iron needles for my beautiful XI Victrola, and I stumble into this wonderful place. Thank you so much.

First time web site looker. Found it most interesting. To bad about your message board. I probably could have used it toward finding parts for my Standard Talking Machine, Model A. I E-mailed you about this matter. Thanks, R.A. Adams.

I live in the UK and have 2 Edison phonographs. For some time both have needed some serious attention to their Type C reproducers. I couldn't find anyone here to undertake the work at a reasonable price. And then I found John! I airmailed them to him and they were very quickly overhauled and new sapphires fitted an I can now play my cylinders LOUD & CLEAR! The coms were excellent and the price most reasonable. Many, many thanks John for a superb job.

At last, a few comments on John Nagy. I've been in touch with john and regularly buying various Edison parts from him for more than 1 year now, always with great satisfaction. I started out my Edison Collection with a Fireside He sold me for a nice reasonable price. Excellent contact and a very agreable and dedicated fellow. Thx again for everything john :-)

Hello: I'm looking for a gear cover for an Edison Fireside cylinder machine. It is the black metal cover that goes over the gearing attached to the mandrel (a square shape with black paint and gold stripes typical of Edison). If you have an original or reproduction, please let me know and give me a price quote. Thank You D
