Introduced in 1907, the Harmony was yet another giveaway machine distributed by the Great Northern Manufacturing Company of Chicago, distributors of the Standard Talking Machine Style A and the Standard Talking Machine Style X.

Harmony machines were fitted with a proprietary 3/4" spindle.

Front mount Harmonies were manufactured by Hawthorne and Sheble. This later, rear-mount Harmony depicted below was built out of standard Columbia components.
