General Electric J-82 Cathedral

General Electric J-82 Cathedral
Now that's a real cathedral! The Gothic arch profile and grille make this General Electric a particularly compelling example of cathedral radio design. The original finish on this cabinet is very nice (not perfect, but surprisingly good), with very little fading of the original toner patterns. The original grille cloth has retained its color quite well. Someone took good care of this radio over its 85 year life. Can you do the same? The eight tube chassis is an earlier version than is usually found in the J-82. It is a superhet, with superb sensitivity and selectivity, but it lacks an AVC and uses the more primitive triode detector of early 1930s radios, with a sound quality and behavior a little different than later radios. You'll enjoy seeing how it compares with newer radios in your collection. Chassis restoration included replacement of all paper and electrolytic capacitors, new resistors throughout, a strong set of tubes, replacement of deteriorated wiring, addition of a fuse (for improved safety), and a better-than-factory RF/IF alignment for top performance. The previously replaced vintage-style power cord and plug are in good shape. 19"H x 14"W x 11"D.  $535.00. (1310067)
