What's new?

Reel To reel tape machines

Reel to Reel recorders like vinyl in records are here to stay.

The period tape machines like Ferrograph were hand built to last and were built  in the UK, just like the classic radio's of the same period use off the shelf components . With that classic valve sound and mechanical design whats not to like. Every instutution had them BBC, schools, armed forces and if you were lucky the private owner to .With the correct servicing some 50 years later they are  as good as the day they left the factory

 

Retro with Classic designs are now very popular. There are a number of client's who collect from a certain decade, this can be for personal interest or as props in television or film, through to interior design. At times we are asked to supply good looking models but are not fully functional. If there is a particular period radio you require please contact me to your specific needs so we c

an do the hard work for you.

Pye Q3 (1959) Early version (SOLD)

The transistor Q3 concept is based on the  P123BQ design and was used through the Q range, the difference being on styling only. This radio was first produced in 1959, and is of the first series as seen internally with the pye yellow circle transistors , these were identified  by little coloured circles on the transistor side enclosing a number from 1 - 5 indicating if the transistor is for I.F use or mixer etc. The styling has a concept from the Pye P114BQ valve jewel case radio, in two ways, first the chrome body, no on/off switch, but will operate as soon as the lid is opened, so if anything a transistor upgrade of there popular model. The advantages were of course no requirement for two batterys as this now requires the PP9 only.The condition is very good with only some slight wear to the case where a slight inpact was done , though really not visible under normal use, the handle is perfect and of course importantly the radio works very well and 57 years old has never needed any replacement components. These radio's will become quite collectable in the future as Pye by 1966 could no longer compete with cheap imports.

The radio comes complete with the battery and 1 years gurantee

Close up of the chassis, as can be seen the Pye yellow circle transistors are in place even on the push pull audio output stage as per the original P123BQ models.

Bush TR82D 6/4/1963 with all original documentation and gurantee card

The bush TR82D is a 2 band transistor portable radio when first manufactured proved to be immensely popular . The fact that it was portable made it particulary attractive to teenagers at the time. The design was created by Ogle Design a company based in Hertfordshire and has subsequently become a classic, hence modern reproductions have been available for several years. But why buy a new copy when you can have a restored original. The radio covers MW 187-570 m & LW 1070-1,900M.

The D finish is in chrome and Tan rexine. The radio original cost was £17 8s 11d plus purchase tax

As with any restored item, there are some slight signs of wear, but to a minimum.

Some of the models used the AF117 range of transistors which have proved to problems relating to crystal buil up from collector to screen, this model uses OC44/45/71 & 78 for the audio output stage, hence reliability.The condition overall is first class, and is as was sold all those years ago. It has its original operating instructions and Guarantee book, plus the original receipt of purchase, so given it its history. Comes complete with PP9 battery and 1 years gurantee
