Seller: holman9099 (115) 100%, Location: Homestead, Pennsylvania, Ships to: US, CA, Item: 273550277845 This is one classy little radio that looks like new. The Dark walnut Bakelite cabinet has hints of red marbling and is flawless. And, with five tubes, it sounds great and has good reception and sensitivity. The cabinet was disassembled, cleaned and polished to a high luster. The reverse painted dial glass is crisp and clear, and illuminated nicely by the pilot light. The marbled Bakelite knobs are original, as is the back cover. The power cord was replaced, using the original plug. You will be hard pressed to find another in this good of condition. Electronically, the chassis was restored, cleaned and serviced, with all paper/wax and electrolytic capacitors replaced. Tubes and resistors were replaced as needed. All controls and contacts were detail cleaned and lubricated. Wiring and other components were replaced as needed. The radio was aligned, peaked and tuned for optimal reception and quality of sound using the internal antenna. This post WWII radio came about at the start of the baby boom and at 70 years old is still a delight to the eyes and ears. Now that it is restored, it should easily last another 70 if well cared for. It displays very well and with the small size, will fit in just about anywhere. Dimensions: 10x6.5x6" Note: Tube radios consist of a variety of vacuum tubes, capacitors, resistors and other electronic components. This radio has been disassembled, cleaned, and components tested. All non-functioning or suspect components were replaced. Vacuum tubes are similar to light bulbs in that an interior filament heats up inside the vacuum tube. When the filament burns out, the tube will need to be replaced. The tubes in this radio are in good working order. The seller cannot guarantee the length of time before a tube will need to be replaced. The longevity of the tube and its filaments is related to the length of time the radio is operated and the frequency of turning the radio power on and off. Condition: Used, Country/Region of Manufacture: United States, Brand: TRAVLER
