RCA 128 (1935)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

RCA 128 (1935)

RCA designed and manufactured some great radios in the 1930's. Even though RCA had a stranglehold on the industry, controlling patents for TRF and Superheterodyne radios, a few companies were given permission to utilize the patents, most notably the Gilfillan Brothers in Los Angeles. A few other companies were allowed to use the patents, but they had to meet some strict standards and manufacture their radios in the Gilfillan factory. This six-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) with its new "magic brain" circuitry, which was basically tuned RF with VCA, and a gorgeous cabinet design was a great seller for RCA. This radio has a ton of volume and a tone control with wonderful fidelity through an 8-inch speaker. We went in and replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The tubes and resistors were checked, replacing where necessary. A safety fuse was added along with an external audio input jack and a new power cord. The jack has a switch which allows you to close the radio tuning functions, or access the audio input jack. Gary did a complete restoration on the cabinet. The Walnut is gorgeous with a "piano" lacquer finish. This big, beautiful radio can be in your collection in a matter of days! 20"H x 17"W x 11"D.  $995.00. (1600527)
