Zenith 6-S-229 Tombstone (1936)


Zenith 6-S-229 Tombstone (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
You are looking at one of the iconic tombstones that made Zenith famous. The brightly lit 6-inch dial was the source of the "black dial" fame with fly wheel tuning. The radio is a five-tube super-het which receives both AM and Shortwave. The cabinet condition is original and showing a minimal amount of wear for the 85 years since it left the factory. I did a bit of touch up to the top due to a watermark. The speaker cloth is an original and the radio is complete with the iconic wood "Z" knobs, two original and two reproduction. The radio is a tremendous player with great selectivity and sound quality. My tech has done a complete repair with all of the aged parts which have failed being replaced and those that might be prone to future failure. He added a mini-jack to allow you an unlimited choice of content along with a fresh power cord and plug for your safe operation. These radios are a collector favorite, which good reason: they are terrific radios. Bluetooth is available for $25! 18"H x 13-1/2"W x 10-1/2"D.
