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 P152BQ (Caribbean) 1957

A controversial looking radio ?, you will either love it or hate it. It's different that is certain, and I would think not to many of these would be around. So why did Pye design it, the chassis apart from having a Ferrite rod aerial and a standard on/off volume control is in fact a Pye P114BQ, these were first introduced in 1955. By then the transistor radio's were being produced so I wonder if this more square design is a reflection on the market at the time, and trying to bring in a modern theme while still using a tried and trusted concept in valve design.

I feel this radio has a statement relating to the commonweath  but unable to be able to comment further as information does not seem to be out there.

The radio itself has had the de-coubling capacitors replaced as well as 3 of the miniature valves, I feel this was due to lack of knowledge and resulted in 90 Volts going to the heaters.It works very well and condition is good, the two on/off and volume knobs with band selector generally come with chrome inserts, i have changed these to Red , it matches the red material sides. The radio works very well indeed and the waveband ranges are 200 - 550 metres (medium wave) and 1,100 - 2,000 metres (long wave). The advantage over the first chassis model is its modern  look, and unlike the jewel case model where you needed to open the lid for it to operate, this sits as a modern radio would for use.

It runs on 90 Volt HT and 1.5 Volt LT batterys , supplied ready for you to use it and of course 1 years gurantee

Ever Ready Personal Type P17B miniature portable (1947) SOLD

This radio apart from some signs of use to the outside is very good time capsule .The strap to the leather handle is perfect and opening the Lid looks like new.. The radio has had 2 new valves fitted, all components replaced as per the photo and the first I.F transformer has been re-placed.

This was aquired from the same family who's father puchased it back in  1947 for the sum of £10 10s. As it is an early post war model which took advantage of miniaturisation this will be of interest to collectors.

The chassis was built by Marconi and the original release date for this model was June 1947, the valves all original DK91, DF91, DAF91 and audio output DL92 emissions are all above spec, so this has had limited use. This model has meduim wave band only (200 - 560 M).

 

The decoupling components have been replaced and the 465 Kc's IF have been re-aligned, offered with a new period B114 battery supplying HT 67 Volt and 1.5 Volt LT battery as per the original and works very well.

Inside the Ever Ready Type B, as you can see the chassis is like new, a perfect time capsule from the 1940's

The on/off switch is operated as soon as the lid is opened, operated via to push switches at the front.

The space at the left is for the Ever Ready B114 battery, nearly half the case. The design is well advance for the period considering typical mains operated receivers built at the same period.

Radio closed, not quite fit in your pocket, but can be held in one hand. This must have been like owning one of the first mobile phones at the time
