The more I read about Arvin, the more fascinating it is. This vast and diverse company made hundreds of products. Starting in 1919 with a tire pump and products for the growing car industry. Then some of the first hot water heaters to housewares, way too many to list. There is a museum exhibit just for war products in Columbus, Indiana. They came up with "families" of radios. The "Phantom Series" and in 1936 the "Rhythm Series" that included ten models. The "Rhythm Maid" is a six-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) set. Each band has its own color and a light that follows the dial pointer. This was the top of the line tombstone that is an impressive performer and was a huge seller for Arvin. Blake did a great job replacing all go the capacitors, checking tubes and resistors, replacing where necessary. A new power cord, audio cable and safety fuse were installed. Gary stripped the cabinet and created a work of art with his refinishing talents! The radio retains its original knobs, and has the correct and original Arvin 8-inch speaker. The sought after "Rhythm Series" radios are very hard to find, and here is an opportunity to own a perfect example of the "Rhythm Maid." 21"H x 17"W x 13"D.
