Atwater Kent 447 (1934)


Atwater Kent 447 (1934)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The 447 was the top-of-the-line table radio for AK in 1934. From the start of table radios in the early 1930's, manufacturers referred to them as "midget radios" as most radios before them were big and heavy. The 447 is a seven-tube, four-band (SB,SWx2,police) set. The tuning knob slides up and down to access four different band scales, a forerunner to the Zenith "robot" dials. The radio has AVC, a four-position tone control and a shadow meter. This radio has great sensitivity and wonderful fidelity through a newly designed 8-inch speaker. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents, checked the resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. He installed a new power cord, safety fuse and an audio cable. He went through the complicated tuning mechanism, which now functions perfectly. Four types of veneer grace the gorgeous cabinet, skillfully refinished by Gary Marvin. Notice the birds-eye maple at the top corners along with a beautiful maple inlay. This special radio will be the centerpiece of someone's collection soon. It might as well be you! Shipping is included with the price. 21"H x 16"W x 12"D.
