Zenith 5-S-29 Tombstone (1936)


Zenith 5-S-29 Tombstone (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
1936 was the year Zenith introduced their "black dial" radios, and the dials were a hit! Zenith sales jumped significantly, and the company hired more workers. 1936 and 1937 were huge financial successes along with cutting edge electronic and styling innovations. The 5-S-29 is a five-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) radio. The smaller backlit black dial has multi-color bands and "split-second" tuning. Joe dug into the chassis replacing all of the capacitors. The resistors and tubes were checked, and out-of-tolerance components were replaced. A new cloth power cord, glass dial cover and audio cable were installed. This radio plays great with lots of volume and good sensitivity across the dial. Gary "Marvinized" the gorgeous Art Deco cabinet. This particular cabinet has the desirable maple band around the bottom creating a beautiful contrast to the walnut veneer. A cool design feature was the metal bezel, which is just a smaller version of the larger console bezels. The original grille cloth, knobs, speaker and chassis are with this radio. Once again, if you are looking for this radio for your collection, it doesn't get any better than this! 18"H x 13"W x 9"D.
