Pathe Concert Actuelle for sale
The Pathe Actuelle was a Victrola era machine employing a conical paper diaphragm as a horn, rather than an internal horn. The Concert Actuelle was a special, oversize version of the Actuelle. Playing a special 16 inch record at 160 rpm, the Concert Actuelle was engineered for auditoriums, concert halls, and other venues where increased volume was necessary. Tremendously rare, only 2 or 3 Concert Actuelles are believed to exist. This is not a complete machine -- there is no cabinet-- but the entire cone and upper mechanism is there, and the electric motor appears to be in the case. There is some typical distress to the diaphragm. What is here should be capable of playing a Pathe concert record. If you have a cabinet and are missing these parts, so much the better.
