arsclist cylinder frequency range


Can anybody tell me what the maximum frequency range present in a well recorded wax cylinder might be? We are trying to determine what the minimum sampling rate should be when converting a cylinder recording to a compressed file format for web delivery. Since the sampling rate only needs to be twice the maximum frequency, we'd like to use the lowest one possible. I see that the Library of Congress used a sampling rage of 11Khz for some 78s in American Memory, but that seems too low to me.
