Zenith 6-S-27 (1936)


Zenith 6-S-27 (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
During the summer of 1935, Zenith came out with a new tombstone design. The most obvious change was the size; these radios were two feet tall and commanded attention with room-shaking volume. Zenith added a smaller version of their big, black multicolored dial, and the radio also had the new design features of the console radios. The 6-S-27 is a six-tube, three-band (SB+SWx2) set. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord, safety fuse and audio cable were added.This radio has excellent sensitivity and tons of volume. Gary stripped the unique cabinet. This radio has maple and walnut veneer and is trimmed with Australian Laurel. The inset grille design is a smaller version of the grille on the 12-A-58 console. After painting and grain filling, Gary finished the radio with a few coats of lacquer, and hand-polished to a gorgeous luster. The set has the original knobs, chassis and speaker, and a reproduction grille cloth was installed. We have had a few of these over the years, but they usually are sold before we can post them on the Attic. Not this time, however! 23"H x 17"W x 14"D.
