Victor's Tapered Tone Arm: "On This Day in History..."


Recommended Posts

"On This Day in Phonographic History..."


March13, 1906: Eldridge Johnson was granted a U.S. patent (No.814,786) for a tapering tone arm. The acoustic improvement over the short-lived “Rigid Arm” (introduced in October 1902) was noticeable, and the ingenious goose-neck sound box tube would distinguish Victor’s products for decades to come.
