Sold first by Pathe as the "Duplex", it was renamed "Zenith" when Girard decided to sale it on credit.  The Concert mandrel was made, like the one of the "Celeste", with spokes made of pot metal.  This is why, on this machine, when broken, it has been replaced by an ordinary Standard Mandrel and a Concert slip-on one.  The glass horn is a modern repro.
