The Indestructible cylinders truly were indestructible with steel bands between cardboard for the core. They all sound great after 100+ years. I just bought 40 at an auction and they all are in great shape. I like the indestructible 2 and 4 minute cylinders much better than Edison's 2 or 4 minute cylinders which have wax, plaster and temperature problems. I believe that they will easily last another 300 years.

Thank you for the comments.

This is amazing. Thank you for sharing.

I expect the song "Signal From Mars" would have a less ceremonial--more suspense / doomy apocalyptic theme if written post Orson Welles radio broadcast of War of the Worlds. But still probably hip by 1910s standards.


Fantastic recording and fantastic quality. You made me very happy.Thank You very much. Bixbix81

Unfortunately, as the camphor slowly evaporates out of the celluloid, these can shrink enough so that they skip grooves when played with a feed-screw phono. I do have a few batches which were always (apparently) stored in closed, flock-lined Edison cylinder boxes , and those are perfect, unshrunk, and actually sparkle in the light - besides smelling strongly of camphor! A store with hundreds of new Indestructibles must have smelled like the inside of a Vicks jar !
