Gilfillan 6-X-8 (1938)


Gilfillan 6-X-8 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Gilfillan was a Los Angeles based radio manufacturer, and started business in 1924. They were one of the only west Coast manufacturers to get and RCA patent to produce Superheterodyne radios. RCA had a stranglehold on the industry, and to obtain permission to manufacture radios, you were under the auspices of Gilfillan. There was a strict quality control issued by RCA, and some of the companies had to build their radios in the Gilfillan factory! The 6-X-8 is a six-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. This radio has a West Coast stationized dial, fairly rare on Gilfillan sets. Blake got into the chassis, replacing all of the capacitors. He checked resistors and tubes replacing where necessary. A safety fuse, MP3 cable and power cord were installed. The set has good sensitivity and lots of tone and volume utilizing and 8-inch speaker. The eye tube is bright and active. The cabinet is original (restored) and features walnut and Australian Laurel veneers. The original knobs, grille cloth, chassis and speaker are present. A new, crystal-clear dial cover was installed. We couldn't find much on this radio, so it's pretty rare! 17"W x 10"H x 9"D.
