RCA 128 Tombstone (1935)

RCA 128 Tombstone (1935)
RCA designed and manufactured some great radios in the 1930's. Even though it had a stranglehold on the industry, controlling patents for TRF and Superheterodyne radios, a few companies were given permission to utilize the patents, most notably the Gilfillan Brothers in Los Angeles. A few other companies were allowed to use the patents, but they had to meet some strict standards and manufacture their radios in the Gilfillan factory. This six-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) with its new "magic brain" circuitry, which was basically tuned RF with VCA, and a gorgeous cabinet design was a great seller for RCA. This radio has a ton of volume and a tone control with wonderful fidelity through an 8-inch speaker. Blake went in and replaced all of the capacitors. He checked tubes and resistors, replacing where necessary. A safety fuse was added along with an audio cable and a new dial scale. Gary did a complete restoration on the cabinet. The walnut is gorgeous with a semi-gloss lacquer finish. We have a new term for Gary's work..."Marvin-ized!" This big beautiful radio can be in your collection in a matter of days! 20"H x 17"W x 11"D.  $999.00. (1600220)
