Zenith 6-S-128 Tombstone (1937)


Zenith 6-S-128 Tombstone (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The Zenith tombstone radios from from 1936 and 1937 set a very high bar on tombstone design and innovative electronic features. Standing close to two feet tall and a foot and a half wide, they are the dominant feature in any room they are displayed in. Zenith tombstones and table radios had a lot of the same features as their high-end consoles. This six-tube, three-band (SB, SW, police) radio with its original 8-inch Zenith speaker is a high performing, quality radio in its own right. Blake went through the chassis replacing all of the capacitors, checking and replacing resistors and tubes where needed. He added a safety fuse, external audio cable and a new power cord. Gary stripped the cabinet and did a total restoration using the proper toners and lacquers. The radio has a factory "piano" finish and it's a beauty! We added a period-correct Zenith reproduction grille cloth, and retained the original wooden knobs. These radios are getting scarce as people are buying them and putting them in collections. If you have been looking for a nice, restored Zenith tombstone, then look no farther! 22"H x 16-1/2"W x 12"D.
