  1. Great Finds

    i got a 1930 victor r-39, it has boosted my love of pre-bird jazz 900%- let me tell you, i was very, very mistaken, very mistaken, in expectation of sound quality, it far exceeds what I thought was possible in SQ. those, are they 30s, theyre 30s right? ellington brunswicks-- they just blast through this thing- sounds absolutely incredible. i put anson weeks through it, the i phone has every 78 he ever made on it at the flick of a scroll. The I phone and the victor r-39 pair together nicely via am transmitter.. the thing sounds incredible. I recommend it as an accessory for any fan of pre bird jazz. Theyre just giving them away all over the country. Anyone who wants one get get one basically at this point. You just need to fish for the right one for you. This was from right when RCA merged with Victor. They kept the Victor name for the TRF sets and the used the rca radiola name for the superhets. I have one tube out but because its push-pull amp they tell me it still works but all i do is buy the expensive tube, gently lift the old one out and gently put the new one in. i dont think im gonna hurt anything in that. But the 20s radio big dawg said fidelity will be improved with the other tube firing. i can hardly imagine what duke will sound like then- it was aboustely incredible. almost, or even, better than having the original 78. recommendations welcomed for period jazz and general music and resources besides and youtube etc....... i wish i could get all the ellington brunswicks in a row on the phone somehwere- is that stuff even available? look at the dial: 1

  13. "Happy Bird" on Charlie Parker records- have you heard it

    hmmm...will have to compare both versions....thats interesting-
  14. I have the Stereo-pact! issue but i swear it plays mono. Its engraved 'stereo' on the lp its not a mix-up, but i cant see how it can get 'more mono' this how it is already. does anyone have both to compare. i think theres a chance the other one, bird is free, is rechanneled, its actually subtle, but i do hear it upon separation of channels so i ordered a mono-pact just to make sure. but do i need to do that also for happy bird, i really dont think so, unless you can convince me....
