|New types of
needles appeared a few years after the disc phonograph became popular. They claimed
multiple benefits -- improved performance and convenience. The fibre needle was one of the

The B&H Fibre Needle Company offered fibre needles in the form of triangular slivers of bamboo. Victor joined the fiber needle market in 1909 by purchasing the B&H Fibre Needle Company. This example is one of the many cutters offered in a variety of configurations from many different companies.
