When you're recording, if you make a mistake can you reuse the cylinder, or is it wasted? If so I would go through 100 cylinders to get one ok take!

Hahaha yes there are planers for cylinders, but not more than three times if not more than enough material;)

Well done! Ya gotta be quick to get it all onto a 2 minute cylinder!

Martin Fisher always brings his Edison to Nashville's "Breaking Up Winter" and will record anybody...I think now he has a base charge for the cylinder as they are pretty expensive.

I tried recording "Berkeley March" on his machine once...could not play fast enough to get it all done in the space of 2 minutes. Just before I tried anyway, some real musicians showed up and I got too nervous to play at all. I did eventually get 'waxed' with a concertina solo...it sounded really amazing...and I did the full announcement just like on the original cylinders. "Concertina Solo played by Mr. Marc Smith...Edison Records"

I have a "Fireside" but it doesn't have the recording reproducer. Martin offered to help me upgrade mine to do recordings but I never got around to it.

Wow great you should try to do it on your phonograph, It's so magical, for the cylinders you can have Paul Morris but there must be other :)
