    "The musical comb (tone comb, comb reeds) is the only resonator constructed exclusively for automated instruments. ... While this comb had already been used in Swiss music boxes since 1820, it was first combined with round perforated discs in Leipzig. ... Thiese types of mechanic disc players were invented by Paul Lochmann (→SYMPHONION) in Leipzig, the main center of production. With the invention of the Sternenrädchen cogwheels (patent in Great Britain only, patent no. 11261 of September 22, 1885), the expedient connection between perforated disc and musical comb could be accomplished. ",

    "Die Lochplatten aus Metall wurden 1887 von Paul Lochmann erfunden. Da sie weit billiger herzustellen waren als die bis dahin üblichen Stiftwalzen, lösten sie eine massenhafte Produktion von mechanischen Musikwerken aus. "
