VintageWindings Western Electric ERPI Manual 1935 Vol 1 DVD

     ERPI, Electrical Research Products Inc. was an off-shoot of Western Electric intended to take over the cinema sound business of the soon the be legally disassembled giant. The files in this collection are .pdf's that were made from hi-res scans of original documents. These are not scans from the web. All scans were done in hi-res, then cleaned, straightened and non original marks removed were practical. Many files have the promos for a piece along with the manual. Full disk details below. Now Free on line !!


Here's ERPI Volume 1

+++ ERPI Sound Manual Volume I +++
This is the first volume sound maintenance manual released
by ERPI in the late 1930's covering theater sound from the early
30's to about 1937. It contains service and modification  informa-
tion for Western Electric amplifiers of the day. It also has great info
on Altec Western Electric theater speakers and Mirrophonic sound
and projection equipment maintenance. This manual was originally
printed in a small format but very thick binder. The pages were
about as heavy as phone book pages with tiny print and there
were 740 of them. Many pages were foldout and were scanned
full size. This was a Major scanning project! 

Single copies of this manual sell on e-bay for over $1000!!
