General Electric A70 Tombstone (1935)


General Electric A70 Tombstone (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This is a seven-tube superhet that plays loud and clear and is very sensitive. This was the first year that GE used their new invention, metal tubes, and this radio is equipped just as it was originally offered in 1935. GE was the inventor of the metal tube and they were very proud of them. The radio has been fully restored, the filter cans have been cleaned out and restuffed with new capacitors. All paper caps have been replaced and all resistors out of tolerance have been replaced. There are new rubber mounts on the tuning assembly and on the chassis. There are three bands including two short wave bands. The dial is sort of robotic as it turns and displays a new scale when you tune to a different band. the tuner has a fast forward function then when you get near your station it goes into "low gear" for fine tuning. Very cool! I have replaced the cord with a new cloth covered cord, and wrapped the speaker cable with waxed string. The grille cloth is also new. The knobs are the original Bakelite knobs. The dial has a new lens and the bronze escutcheon is very attractive. Cabinet is refinished in satin lacquer. 20"H x 15"W x 11"D, about 26 lbs packed.
