Edison Gold Moulded Records

Edison Gold Moulded Records
United States
from 1902 to 1912
Gold Moulded Records was a sub-label of Edison Records launched in January, 1902 to market new cylinder records of hard black wax that could be replayed hundreds of times. These replaced earlier Brown Wax cylinders, and many titles were either re-recorded and/or re-numbered for issue on the new format. While sturdy, these cylinders had only two minutes of playing time. Designations of Edison two minute black wax cylinders changed over time between 1902-1912, and these name variations appear on cylinder boxes. The term "Gold Moulded" first appeared in late 1903 and is found on cylinder boxes and catalogs until June, 1908. By July, 1908 they were simply called "Edison Records" on boxes because a new method of record production had replaced the Gold-Moulding process. Therefore, Edison two minute cylinders produced after June, 1908 should be listed under Edison Records, because they were not Gold Moulded Records. When new 4-minute Edison Amberol Records were introduced in November, 1908, the older cylinders were called "Edison Two-Minute Records", although this name doesn't appear on any cylinder boxes. By January, 1909 they were called "Edison Standard Records", and this is the name that persisted on cylinder boxes until production of two minute black wax cylinders ended. In 1912 they were discontinued in favor of Edison Blue Amberol Records, which featured cylinders with four minutes playing time.

Alternate (foreign) names:
