I'm dubbing my 2 minute Edison Grand Opera cylinders to CDs using a stylus from Expert Stylus and Cartridge in England in a Shure cartridge, the motor & mandrel from an Amberola 30 & the Rabco SL-8E linear tracking tonearm which gives excellent results. In dubbing B-21 which is the Bach-Gounod "Ave Maria" sung by Marie Rappold the record had a very quiet surface during the announcement but when Mme. Rappold began to sing there was a constant hiss which continued through her singing but ended as soon as she finished. I observe no visible difference in the grooves This leads me to think that this particular recording may have been from a dubbed master. None of the other cylinders sound like this. Any ideas?
