Introduced in 1902 for 15 pounds, this machine is a modified Edison Concert.  The Triton (3 springs) motor has been replaced by the one of an Edison Home.  It has a special aluminum slip-on mandrel to be able to play both Standard and Concert size cylinders.   To play the Standard size ones it is provided with a special reproducer adaptor to lower the reproducer in the right position,  Notice the quite rare Edison-Bell Concert cylinder box.
