Monarch 5002 (by Trav-Ler) (1946)


Monarch 5002 (by Trav-Ler) (1946)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This "Monarch" Bakelite table radio is a Trav-Ler 5002 rebranded for a department store or other retailer, which was a fairly common practice with some manufacturers. It's a six-tube superhet with built-in loop antenna; the extra RF amplifier stage gives it outstanding sensitivity. The chassis has been thoroughly restored to work as good as new, with all new capacitors, a strong set of tubes, new resistors where needed, a new dial string, and a complete RF/IF alignment. A new polarized power cord has been installed, along with modified power switch wiring for improved safety. The original speaker is in perfect condition, and sound quality is excellent. The Bakelite cabinet has a good original shine (no clear-coat, wax, or other enhancement). The escutcheon and pointer are original; the knobs, back, and dial cover are replacements. The dial is lighted. This is a great little radio you can use for everyday listening. It's fairly compact and light, so shipping won't break the bank. 9-5/8"W x 6-1/2"H x 5-1/4"D.
