Atwater Kent 84 (1932)
(wood tube cathedral radio)

Atwater Kent 84 (1932)

NEW!When cathedral radios were first offered in the early 1930's, they were referred to as midget or compact radios. They were so much smaller than the console and large "coffin" style radios that preceded them. By today's standards they are quite large and heavy. The model 84 does have a darker "gothic" look, but also has a beauty of its own. The graceful arched and pointed top is graced with simple side moldings. This six-tube, AM-only radio plays loud and clear with great tone and sensitivity through the original 8-inch speaker. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. We installed a safety fuse, new antenna lead and an audio input cable. The switch on the back of the chassis is a tone control. Gary Marvin's comment on the cabinet: "This is about the nicest AK that I have ever had and I wouldn't have refinished it, except someone already had. There were no repairs to the cabinet and I refinished it with grain filler, toner and satin lacquer." The chassis, speaker, knobs and grille cloth are original. This beautiful and great performing radio is ready for your collection. Don't miss out on this highly collectable Atwater Kent! They aren't making them any more folks! 19-1/2"H x 15-1/2" W x 10"D.  $795.00. (1600532)
