1908 Sears Catalog ad: The Thompson Modifier

. Sunday, July 21, 2013

The Thompson Modifier. No. 20K5375. This instrument softens the tone, eliminates the metallic sound, takes all the scratch out and makes the reproduction as soft, smooth and harmonious as the original. Modern disc records are frequently so true to the original, reproducing the sound practically in all its original volume that they are too loud to be pleasant in small rooms and this Thompson Modifier inserted into the horn of the machine softens the sound, making it pleasant and agreeable even in the smallest of rooms. The Thompson Modifier is strongly and substantially made of brass, nickel plated, fitted with rubber at points where it touches the horn, and instantly put into place or as quickly removed. There is no talking machine included with this modifier. It is simply an attachment to put into the horn of your own machine. Price 75 cents.
