Wilcox-Gay A52 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

First time on Radio Attic for this five-tube AM receiver. Wilcox-Gay is a name more associated with home recording machines, first disc, then wire and later reel to reel recorders, but they did produce some nice-looking radios prior to shifting their focus to recording units in the 40s and 50s. This one features a nice backlit glass slide rule dial surrounded by an anodized gold escutcheon. Its stylish cabinet with cherry inlay accents was refinished with toners and topped off with a light coat of clear enamel for sheen and durability. The chassis was totally recapped, out of tolerance resistors replaced. Controls cleaned and lubricated for smooth operation. A strong tested set of tubes and a new line cord. It's a strong playing radio with lots of volume, receiving all of my local stations with its ANT wire connected to an external source for distant reception (or use the aux cable to stream your own audio). 14-1/4"W x 8"H x 7"D.
