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.

Zenith Trans-Oceanic Radios

Zenith Trans-Oceanic RD7000Y2 In very fine condition with original Case (SOLD)

A very fine receiver , one owner from new and just 14 years of age and was the final model with the desirable band spread tuning. Also the last model to be hand wired and also seems to be the best audio of the transistorised Trans-Oceanic series.

First produced in 1969 and was updated 3 times with a total 130,000 units produced. The radio offeres a built in BFO for SSB reception, a tone control, two bandwidths, lighted dial and map light and 9 select bands, including VHF weather. Other improvements over the earlier 1000 and 3000 series included a stronger handle independant of the large whip telescopic aerial. Also the Chrome plating was improved to eliminate the pitting issues with earlier models. There was 3 versions of this model, they were identical apart from the weather band and the map compartment cover was changed from silver to black and the front cover was re-designed in the final version.

As can be seen in the pictures the overall condition is very good with little markings of age.

The main tuning dial lamps work , though Im trying to locate a new bulb for the map reader.

You need to fit one 1.5 volt battery for these lamps, even if used only on the mains.

Comes complete with original mains lead and 6 months gurantee

Zenith 3000 Trans- Oceanic (date stamped 12/01/1964) The case was for display only

A first class example of the second series of portable receivers from Zenith. This model was first introduced in 1963 and its production run was for 8 years. This model has a impressive 7 bands VHF, Longwave, Medium wave and shortwaves covering broadcast ,marine and weather bands at the time.

 

Again Hacker without doupt are first class radio receivers, but when you think Hacker in 1964 were producing the RP17A Mini Herald and the RP18 Sovereign , the Zenith in build quality was at another level, though could not match Hackers first class audio.

 

The -1 indicates that it can accept an internal AC adaptor power supply. Quite a small 3/32 inch male plug. The sound quality is very good from its 4 inch by 6 inch elliptical speaker fitted to the front.

In the first year of production the model retailed at $275 which was approx £80 "ouch" , but then you pay for quality.

This radio is in first class condition, not a scratch or dent, original charts enclosed, the light works , aerial perfect and approx 3 foot high, first class battery box and one owner from new . The radio works very well , very sensitive and selective and from what I have been informed was rarely used.

Zenith RD7000Y Purchased 10/11/76 SOLD

Just arrived a fine Zenith second version of the 7000 series, the difference being the slotted front lower lid and the on/off variable RF gain control. The radio works really well, very sensistive and sounds very good on FM. It was noted that the later models had an improved audio section. As we most of these there is slight shrinking on the material to the sides with slight bowing to the left hand side. It could be re-placed using the same material as the black Hackers, though it is not in my opinion required. What makes this radio special, is first one owner from new , still has the original battery holders present and all the paperwork present. I have the original sales receipt, purchased in 1976 at San diego. The weather band guide plus the operating guide book with a original service manual. What else could you ask for. The radio has only very, very slight wear to the case , but you would have to look for it to find it. The Dial bulbs require my attention to see why they are not working at the moment, again common issue with these.

Comes with original mains lead and 6 months gurantee

I have serviced a few of these radios and being totaly impressed with the quality have decided to offer models at times for sale.

Hacker radios by reputation are brilliant, the sound quality in my opnion has not been bettered on portable receivers and build quality would be equal to a  Jaguar car. The Zenith portable receivers on the other hand in build quality have to be matched to a Rolls Royce. These radios can and do offer VHF with the option to use it just as a FM tuner allowing you to connect direct to an amplifier. But lets be honest these receivers were built with short wave in mind and wow what a mind behind the design .

Zenith 3000-1 first class build to the chassis. A rather interesting concept and i can only guess for ease on production , the transistors are push fit , not soldered , very handy when you get a AF type transistor go short internally in the I.F stage.

The quality of construction in just first class. The picture below shows the internal case with loud speaker fitted.

Very soon I wil Have a 7000 mint with all paper work and receipt of sale . 1000 mint also

Zenith Royal 1000D (SOLD)

A very fine example of the Zenith Trans-oceanic 1000D , this model was produced in the early 1960's though the first model was produced in 1957. It was expensive $275 some £90 UK . It offered MW, LW and 7 short wave bands hence very popular with Radio Amateurs and short wave listeners. Regarding its history these sets were often used in the international spy-scene as these sets were less bulky than the heavy spy radio receivers of the time, and as they were off the shelf, buying one did not attract any attention.

This D model had the Long Wave added in 1961 and was succeeded by the Royal 3000 in 1963. These radios are now quite hard to find good examples.

The condition of this model is really very good to fine, the original battery pack has been replaced with a mains adaptor for 240 Volts the little cut on the right hand side of the back panel is factory fitted for this purpose.
