General Electric E-81 (1936)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

General Electric E-81 (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Radios with an excellent original finish are getting harder to find these days. This General Electric E-81 is all original -- finish, knobs, escutcheon, grille cloth, and dial cover -- and it looks great! GE radios from the mid-1930s are a bit under appreciated; they are top notch performers and have excellent audio fidelity. Although it wasn't the top-of-the-line for GE, this one still has some high end touches -- a two speed tuning mechanism and a 6L6 audio output stage for tons of good quality volume. It covers three bands -- the usual BC band, as well as SW1 (1.8 - 6 MHz) and SW2 (6 - 18 MHz). The eight-tube chassis has been thoroughly restored to perform like new, including new capacitors throughout, new resistors where needed (including Candohm replacement), a replacement volume control, a new vintage-style power cord, and a meticulous RF/IF alignment. You'll find this radio is a "keeper" for many reasons. 19-1/2"H x 16"W x 11-1/4"D.
