Zenith 5-S-228 (1938)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Zenith 5-S-228 (1938)

The 5-S-228 came out in June of 1937 for the 1938 line. Some of the printed advertising showed the 228 along with a few "cube" models. The 228 was basically a mini-tombstone version of the "cube," utilizing the five-tube 5521 chassis which was used in a few cube models. Popular with collectors as it is a little harder to find this model due to lower production numbers. The 5-S-228 is a five-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio. All of the capacitors were replaced with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. A new power cord, safety fuse, audio input jack and antenna lead were installed. Gary stripped the cabinet and skillfully restored it to a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The original knobs, speaker and chassis are with the radio. We installed a reproduction grille cloth. This radio performs well and has good sensitivity, picking up many stations across the dial. This is a very nice 5-S-228 and would be a great addition to anyone's collection! 13"H x 10"W x 9-1/2"D.  $749.00. (1600469)
