Atwater Kent 337 (1935)


Atwater Kent 337 (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Atwater Kent remained uncompromising in their commitment to quality despite the financial pressures of the Great Depression. This model 337 is no exception. While other companies were using less tubes, thin plywood cabinets and cheap veneers, AK stuck to their guns on this 337 with a gorgeous 3/4-inch thick solid wood cabinet, expensive veneers, and even a bit of marquetry. They gave it seven tubes in a top notch chassis loaded with features, including a brightly lit dial with band selected backlight, and a very unique two speed gearshift for coarse and fine tuning. They put in a very nice speaker and the sound is outstanding. The receiver sensitivity is very good due to the dedicated RF amplifier tube. The cabinet is very nice but has a few flaws to show for its 86 years of service. I gave it a good set of tubes, all new capacitors, resistors as necessary, and replaced most of the rubber wiring. I installed a cable for mobile devices. For whatever reason the 337 doesn't fetch the nearly four-digit price tag of the 228 or the 356, so you can own first rate Atwater Kent quality for a lot less money. 18"H x 14"W x 9"D and fairly heavy due to the solid wood cabinet.
