Gennett 5

Gennett (U.S.A.) / 1928

back next

Design: A more attractive scroll border than Victor's Victrola design of the same period. However, the 'antique' look is hardly sympathetic to the new electric recording technology being promoted. The release date is shown as January 1928.

History: Gennett spent some time developing its electric recording technology, which had begun to oust the acoustic method of recording through a single large horn. The 'Electrobeam' method was dropped after a year for a more reliable process.
