The Amberola IV mated an Edison Home motor to a modified Edison Standard bedplate. The bedplate was usually painted brown. A slip joint assembly connected the four minute reproducer to the internal horn.

Introduced in late 1914 at a price of $100, the mission style Amberola IV did not sit well with Edison's rural customer base, and very few were sold. .

The motor and upperworks made use of standard Edison components. The speed control screw extended through the bedplate, in the manner of Edison Model A machinery.
