The Vox Tabletop

Post by Gmemg » Mon Dec 11, 2017 7:48 pm

This is an odd machine - i've seen a couple of them - they seem to be a Product of Weimar Germany but are very well made and as you can see have a novelty feature - they have grille's on all four sides ! i assume they were placed on a table and people danced around them !

This one is of Solid Oak and features the typcial Vox Horn - or rather reflector

here's the Outside :

The Top & Sides :

The Inside - showing the wooden Tonearm & Soundbox

And the "secret" the internal Horn & Reflector - ALL made of wood - the Tubular Horn is wooden with a seam along the top where it is glued
