"On This Day in Phonographic History..."


May 4, 1886: Chichester Bell & Charles Sumner Tainter were granted a U.S. patent for “Recording and Reproducing Speech & Other Sounds.” No.341,214. This patent specified engraving sound rather than indenting it, and was one of the fundamental patents upon which the Columbia Phonograph Company was built.
