Automated Music Show, Spring 1998

Moving from its previous location in Bound Brook, NJ to Claymont, DE, the Automated Music show filled several rooms of the Wilmington Hilton On Sunday, April 5th. The show was packed with hundreds of people, and there was so much going on, I confess that I paid more attention to the show, and less to my camera, so please excuse the short coverage!

There were alot of dealers and even more attendees. By 10am, the rooms were packed with hundreds of phono enthusiasts.

Tables were filled with hundreds of phonographs and music boxes, including these two wooden horned machines, a Columbia and an Edison.

You want needle tins? Jerry, the king of tins, had hundreds for sale from $6 to over $100.

He also had an interesting selection of foreign cylinders including a Lioret.

If you've got the room, the show had the music box for you.

At over 6 feet tall, this Regina disc musicbox brought new meaning to "upright" machine!
