Wilcox-Gay A-29 (1936)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Wilcox-Gay A-29 (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

The Wilcox Company started making amateur radio components and kits in 1910 in Charlotte, Michigan. By 1926 they started manufacturing consumer radios. Paul Gay joined the company in 1936 and formed the Wilcox-Gay Corporation. They came out with the Recordio in 1939, and musicians Johnny Cash and Les Paul started recording records on it, just to name a few. The A-29 is a five-tube, (the ballast tube could be considered the sixth) three-band (SB,SW Police) AC/DC radio. This model has the same cabinet and grille as the A-15, a radio we sold previously, but the dial and chassis are slightly different. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. We added a polarized power cord, safety fuse and antenna lead. Gary refinished the radio just as it came from the factory, ending up with a beautiful "piano" finish. The knobs, chassis and dial are original and Gary added a period-correct reproduction grille cloth and a crystal-clear dial cover. The speaker is a PM replacement and sounds fantastic! Looking for a totally unique radio for your collection? Here it is! 15-1/2"H x 12-1/2"W x 8"D.
