About: Arthur Collins

Turtle Talk:
You will hear some surface noise and some continuous thumps, especially during the first minute of this performance. This surface noise is frequently hear in diamond discs from this period. Some of Edison's experiments with different recording surfaces produced the surface noise. (More information) The thumps may be cause by a record surface that was not flat causing the playback cartridge and stylus to rise and fall with each revolution of the disc.

Tech Tidbits:
"The Preacher and the Bear" was transferred using a 3.3 mil elliptical stylus in a Stanton 500 stereo cartridge at 80 rpm on a United Audio Dual 1219 turntable.
