RCA 5T (1936)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

RCA 5T (1936)

In 1921, David Sarnoff started RCA as General Manager, and remained until 1970. By 1926, they already controlled the commercial radio industry, buying radio stations, and then formed NBC. Eventually, NBC was broken up into the other networks, ABC and CBS. More on RCA in upcoming ads. The 5T is a five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. We installed a polarized power cord, antenna lead, external audio cable (Bluetooth, iPhone, iPad) and a safety fuse. RCA made great sets, and this radio plays strong and picks up plenty of stations across the dial. Gary stripped the Walnut and Maple veneered cabinet. Using high-quality products and craftsmanship, he ended up with a "piano" lacquer finish. This radio has the original knobs, chassis, copper bezel, dial scale and 8-inch speaker. A new dial cover was installed along with a period-correct reproduction grille cloth. This gorgeous example of an RCA 5T would look perfect in your collection! 16"H x 13"W x 9"D.  $579.00. (1600459)
