Notes
Victor files note: "This record, created in Bell Telephone Laboratories, New York, illustrates the effect on piano music successively suppressing certain frequency ranges."
Victor blue history card: "All parts shipped to Indianapolis, 1947, per Mr. Lyons, 4/1/1948." Victor ledgers note: "Records made with matrix marked 1 made for Bell Laboratories. Records made with matrix marked 1A made for Victor Co."
Victor catalogs: "These records have been recorded for use in demonstrating the effect of removal of various parts of the sound frequency spectrum on the characteristics of music, speech and the combination of both. In addition the effect of overloading the amplifiers through which the frequencies pass can be shown. They will be very helpful in training an observer so that he can better judge types of reproduction and reasons for the various types of distortion."
For Bell Telephone Laboratories.
