General Electric K-80 Tombstone (1934)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

General Electric K-80 Tombstone (1934)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

This is one of the best receiving radios that has passed through my shop in a very long time. RCA owned all of the Armstrong patents, shared with GE, and simply had a superior edge in the technology of this era. The radio is a monster, simply huge in size and with a super eight-tube super-het chassis is one of radio's best. The condition of the cabinet is spectacular, with the original finish in "like new" condition, the metal tags in place around the dials, and even the little spinner control on the tuning knob. The speaker cloth is original. Inside you have a multi-band receiver which is one of the best shortwave receivers I have ever tested. The radio sports a high tube count and dramatically oversized 10-inch speaker. This radio is a real listening model. Les has gone through the chassis with great care returning all bands to factory new condition. He added a mini-jack allowing you an unlimited source of content. Adding a fresh power cord and plug and complete tuner alignment, this radio is a terrific playing radio. 22"H x 15"W x 12"D.
