Some Notes On Pathe Records

The Pathé disc record was a type of phonograph record produced by the Pathé company in France beginning in 1905. It was originally created as single sided disc with a cement core and wax top layer changing a year later to a shellac composition which would become the standard for U.S. produced 78 RPM records until the late 1940’s.

Pathé records were known for their unique sound quality, which was due in part to the vertical recording process used by the company. This method of recording used a stylus that moved up and down, rather than the side-to-side movement of lateral recording used by other phonograph records. This resulted in a distinctive sound that was particularly suited to recordings of classical music and operas.

Pathé created a ball shaped stylus that did not have to be changed after each play like the loud and soft tone steel phonograph needles used for the shellac 78’s of the time. Pathe discs typically played at a rate of 80, 90 or 120 RPM’s  and in the early production years played from the inside out.

Although Pathé records were produced in France until 1932 today they are rare and highly sought after by collectors.
