MERE ARE the secrets of The Brunswick Method of

fully pure tone which has given The Brunswick Pho
nograph such prestige:
Experts in acoustics have long agreed that superior re
production depends chiefly upon the reproducer and the way
in which tone is amplified.
Until the coming of The Brunswick, many experts
thought it impossible to overcome "spotty" reproduction
that is, alternate good and bad tones. Yet all were striving
to increase the good tones and decrease the bad.
The fault, we found, after hundreds of tests, was large
ly due to the use of metal in the amplifier or sound cham
ber. Having no elasticity, metal prevented the sound waves
from expanding properly. Strident noises resulted.
So we chose wood, developing the now famous Bruns
wick amplifier, built entirely of wood. We tested dozens
of different woods, arranging them in numerous Bhapes.
Finally we attained the proper acoustic values.
Brunswick tone is infinitely better, for tones considered
rare a few years ago are ever-present in this super-instrument
No one can remain unappreciative of its fullness,
richness and clarity. And all appreciate the banishment of
metallic sounds. Once you hear The Brunswick, your own
ear will confirm these statements.
Another great feature of The Brunswick Method of Re
production is the Ultona, our all-record reproducer. At a
turn of the hand, it presents to each type of record the
proper needle and diaphragm. Each make of record can
now be heard at its best, played exactly ns it should be.
Thus you are not limited in your selection of records to one
Before you buy, or even if you already have a phono
graph, hear The Brunswick. Put it to any tone .test you
wish. Ask that the most difficult records be played. Make
comparisons. Then let sheer merit decide.
