      Description

      These used hill-and-dale motion, rather than the side-to-side motion normally used for phonograph records and according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edison_Disc_Record "Diamond Discs were incompatible with ordinary disc record players, the disposable steel needles of which would damage them while extracting hardly any sound." and "the Edison system could not play Victor or other lateral discs unless one used special equipment"
