Here at The North American Phonograph Co. we like to use an Edison Triumph
or Standard Phonograph with Borri wax cylinders. If you need any cylinders,
let us know.

>Does anyone out there have suggestions for a dependable field recording

>about this. In recent years most audio fieldwork has been done on
>cassette or DAT, and even though both of those formats have a limited
>future, they have a large user base and may be preferable for the short
>run while the market decides just what will be available. That said, a
>lot of people are rushing to buy items such as portable CD recorders and
>Marantz's flashcard recorder, moves that they may live to regret. Still
>others are using Minidisc recorders. One growing and intriguing
>possibility is laptop hard drive recording, which can be accomplished
>with various combinations of gear, but would seem to cost almost as much
>as a non-portable digital audio workstation.
>Any suggestions or useful tales from the field would be appreciated.
