Brown Telefunken Musikus records

Post by Alexander B. » 12 Oct 2019 11:55

Hello everyone,

I've been wondering for a long time, whats the deal with the brown shellac used for a number of Telefunken Musikus releases? Its a really interesting color for shellac and I notice that not many Musikus releases were on this color of record. I originally believed maybe it was a color for march records; but, I've seen some titles which are not marches or military music released on them.

Cheers
Alex

Hello, Alex

The brown records were made of cheaper material.
