Design: A clean-looking design, with the entire upper segment occupied by the 'logo,' featuring the letters A, B and C lined up over a treble clef, and overlaid by a semiquaver with extended stems, showing the same three notes. 'Electro' refers to the electrical microphone being used in the recording process, rather than the wide-mouthed acoustic horn which was in common use prior to 1925.

History: Label scans above and below courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia, who writes: "Recordings with this label were made for Sternberg Record Company, Budapest, Hungary. Recorded in Prague by Czech dance bands with vocals in Hungarian or German. Some of these recordings were pressed also on the Magyar Divatcsarnok, Sternberg, Weekend and Danubius Record labels."
