Listed price on date of sale - $425.00
Fresh off the bench is this beautiful 1935 Grunow Tombstone radio. Starting in 1928, Grigsby-Grunow produced the famous and high performing Majestic brand radios. They hired the brightest engineering talent available and became one of the most prolific radio and tube manufacturing companies of the time. In spite of the depression in 1929, Majestic radios sold well and were even distributed in Europe and Africa. This rare and beautifully constructed tombstone radio is an "All-Wave" six-tube, three-band (SB, SWx2) set that retains its original 8-inch speaker. Blake has replaced all the wax/paper capacitors with the new long lasting caps of equal values. The tubes and resistors have been checked and replaced as needed and a safety fuse has been added. Gary has professionally restored the cabinet back to a "like new" factory finish using semigloss lacquer and toners. Gary said the finish on the grille was so nice that he didn't have to restore it. A new reproduction grille cloth has been installed. An auxiliary jack with cable is included so you can plug and play your own device. 19"H x 13-1/2"W x 10"D.
