Zenith 7-S-28 Tombstone (1936)


Zenith 7-S-28 Tombstone (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The 7-S-28 could possibly be the rarest of the 1936 model year tombstones. Zenith had several 1935-36 models that shared the same multi-colored dial and bezel. As you select A-B-C, each band has its own illumination and color. Another new feature was a two-knob, coarse/fine "split-second" tuning set-up. Many consider 1935 to 1940 to be the "glory years" of innovation and design for Zenith. The 7-S-28 is a seven-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) set and Zenith had three other "28" models including one finished in ebony. Blake dug into the chassis, replacing all of the capacitors, checking resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. An MP3 cable, safety fuse and new power cord were installed. I think this is one of Gary's top refinishes. Straight grain American walnut with burl walnut accent sections. With that fantastic lacquer finish, it's like looking into a jewelry box! The knobs and speaker are original and we added a reproduction grille cloth. This sensitive, strong-playing radio won't be for sale long! One of Zenith's largest tombstones! 22-1/2"H x 16-1/2"W x 14"D.
