Hey, I'm New Here

Post by kjq45 on Mon Dec 30, 2013 11:46 pm

Hi all. I am new to this forum, but an old time Newcomb Audio fan. Compared to some of you, I may have little knowledge about record players, but I surely have put in the time researching and learning. One of my web site pages is devoted to Newcomb transcription players. Hopefully I can share what I know and always invite input. I hope it's OK to post the web address here.

Welcome to TRF. I have several models of Newcombs that I enjoy.
I have an early TR-16 two speed with a single speaker, all maroon,
Two versions of the TR-25AM , one four speed, other three speed, both with the famous GE Magnetic cartridge, Both have two full range 12" Speakers. I also have Four versions of the tube classroom model R-12 in maroon. One is a two speed, three are different versions of three speed, and, one is a four speed.
I also have a Newcomb AM table radio..
I am always impressed with these machines, and, how well they play...
I wish I had one of the early tube stereo machines.
Why don't you do an article in our phonograph section on these fine machines?? I certainly would be interested.

Welcome to TRF!  I own a Newcomb TR-16AM that my dad bought new in 1953.  It is maroon with two 12" speakers and the famous GE variable-reluctance cartridge.  It has played millions of Cliffie Stone records at square dances, with yours truly spinning the platters.  Good stuff.

Regards

WC

I had a Newcomb 10" Reel to Reel TX 10 with a joystick control- 2 channel. It was originally purchased by Douglas Aircraft, for use on recording Aiplane wing stress measurements.
That machine could be used a 3 different speeds, It was fun while editing my music. The fast forward and reverse could be reversed at full speed without any tape breakage.
Still wish I had it.

I have 2 Newcomb record players myself. A tube AV-10 and a transistor AVT-25 that was from the catholic school I went to in the late 1960's early 70's. I like that off-on-pause knob that lights up.
