Sold by Jim Dennis on September 26, 2016
Listed price on date of sale - $325.00
The ol' Moondog was graduating from high school when this incredible multi-shade RCA wood twin speaker monstrosity was hitting the stores! And, I think the "seed" was planted back in '42 for what was to come in later years that was coined by the Moondog, Alan Freed: Rock n' Roll! Like in 3-D movies, the fabric of the musical sound was starting to take shape and jump out of the speaker like never before! Heck, rock and roll was coming out of the speakers, but we just didn't know it yet! Electronically reconditioned, aligned with new paper and electrolytic capacitors with out of tolerance resistors. A new power cord has been added! The five tubes are strong. There's an external antenna connection for greater sensitivity. Plays wonderful! A Jim Dennis Scale of Beauty "Moondog Special!" If you'd like additional pictures please let me know. 17"W x 7-1/2"H x 7"D.
