Evolution of an MC

Besides "What's with your hair?" I have been asked more than once regarding the Ancient Mix Master: What's with that third tonearm? Why did they do that? It was built when?

I was recently contacted by the son of George K. Culbertson, the man who made the Fidelitone, the Ancient Mix-Master. Here is a collection of old ads, a magazine article and pictures of George with different versions.

Thanks to the generous nature of George's family for sharing some images of old ads, and an article with George himself from 1939! Click below for a PDF document of 25 images.

One of my favorite descriptions of a performance was: "This sounds like the cartoon music in my dreams." This video is from March 2012 and is a good example of the monkeyshine you can pull off when you have three arms.
