Zenith 6-D-629 "Boomerang" (1942)


Zenith 6-D-629 "Boomerang" (1942)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Zenith designed a series of "Boomerang" radios, named for the dial shaped like a boomerang. Designed in wood and Bakelite by Robert Budlong, it was one of the last new radios produced before war production started in April of 1942. I found seven wood boomerang models and two rare Bakelite models. These radios were part of Zenith's "Consoltone" series. The 6-S-629 is a six-tube, AM only set. New for 1942, it also had the newly designed "wave magnet" loop antenna. Blake replaced all of the capacitors, checked the resistors and tubes, replacing where necessary. He added a new power cord. I added an audio cable so external devices (Bluetooth, iPhone etc.) can be used. The set performs well with sensitivity, plenty of volume, and good bass response. The beautiful walnut cabinet was stripped and refinished by Gary Marvin. He applied several coats of lacquer, producing a gorgeous "piano" finish. The original knobs are present, and we installed a new reproduction grille cloth, a new reproduction back and a crystal-clear dial cover from Mark Palmquist. A beautiful representation of a Zenith "Boomerang" to enjoy many years of listening pleasure! 14"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D.
