"Yes - is a Scott Masterpiece -round black dial, 6 controls plus tuning knobs, separate 3 tube power supply with pair of 6V6 output tubes. The correct speaker has two field coils, the output transformer and the speaker cable has an 8 pin octal plug."

Rare Masterpiece ?

Aquired this set with what appears to be factory hanging brackets. He front dash appears precision made as well, sadly all that remains. Rare as the Masterpiece is, this qualifies as unique.See More

"I'll keep that in mind and let you know If I need further help.  I have yet to go through the unit to assess it.  It sits in the queue until I finish other radios."

"Todd - I have several good used Wunderlich tubes and can supply one if needed. Be tested on vintage tube tester with settings and I would run it in my AW-12 for a half hour as well."

"It ought sound pretty good, properly restored including replacement of filters and capacitors. The 14 tube Scott Masterpiece is essentially a 12 tube Scott Super Twelve with a revised audio section. I have one and it sounds really good feeding an CD…"

"The early aftermarket tuner is a part of the radio's history.  If you can make it look reasonable, I would leave it.  Fix the damaged areas if you want.  Having it won't hurt the set's value if you repair the damaged…"

Scott Masterpiece with aftermarket Browning FM tuner

I recently acquired this 14-tube radio.  It has an aftermarket FM tuner installed back in 1947.  It was installed rather intrusively using the empty space in the cabinet with a cutout on the side.  It is structurally braced in there and has an escutcheon on the outer surface.  The side also shows three poorly filled holes from an aborted attempt to place the tuner.My question is whether there is any value in leaving the aftermarket tuner in there during restoration, or whether I should remove…See More

"Todd - Thanks, I didn't have that serial number in my list. I can't tell you much, but I do know it was built sometime in the latter half of 1933 - M-144 was built July 5 1933, your number is about 50 greater...I'd guess fall 1933. By…"

Todd Scrivens replied to Kent King's discussion Scott serial numbers
"Hi Kent, After many hours of research here, I've decided to join the group here and begin the process of restoring what I believe to be an AW 12 Deluxe. The serial number is M193.  It has been in my wife's family for a long time,…"

Dave replied to Dave's discussion AW12 Deluxe Hum
"Thanks for the advice Kent. The set has been recapped, I’ll check back inside after the tube swap. When rebuilt, the 55 with strapped cathode to pin, was in place. Following that I acquired a Wunderlich, which performed gloriously, Perhaps…"

Kent King replied to Dave's discussion AW12 Deluxe Hum
"Dave - Well, since the hum increases with the volume control, it is probably being introduced before the volume control. That means the Wunderlich detector, and IF and RF tubes are suspect. A very likely source is a tube, slight filament to cathode…"

AW12 Deluxe Hum

Borrowed photo from Todd as a pictorial. Thanks Todd. I’ve had this set rebuilt and enjoying the broadcast and phono output for some time. Unfortunately a recent startup was accompanied with HUM, increasing with volume advancement. I’ve tried tube replacement to no avail, where would you start looking ?See More

EH SCOTT, FM PHANTOM (28 TUBE), WARRINGTON CABINET....GRILL CLOTH

Posted by Dean Trenery on August 30, 2018 at 5:03pm 1 Comment

Hello...

I have had this radio for 25+ years.

It is all original, and is in working condition.

It has the original grill cloth (gold...with musical note pattern).

Recently my cat decided it looked like an interesting scratch pad.

I am afraid I need to replace it...

Anyone have a source for this item?

Thanks, Dean/Seattle

AW23

Posted by Lawrence E Edmister on August 9, 2018 at 5:27pm 0 Comments

Hi everyone, I am new to this site and want to say thanks for allowing me to become a member. I've been restoring tube radio's for awhile but recently I came across a EH Scott AW23 in a Tasman cabinet. I've never seen one of these and I'm looking forward to restoring it. The chrome is beautiful and in very good condition. I know little about this radio but I'm confident that I will learn a lot here.

Carr Fire

Posted by Norman S Braithwaite on August 1, 2018 at 11:41am 3 Comments

As some of you know, the Carr Fire has exacted a great toll in the City of Redding and surrounding area.  My house and half of my collection was the first visited by the fire in the devastated Lake Redding Estates neighborhood with no advance notice to evacuate and no fire trucks around.  Fortunately the house and collection were spared.  Unfortunately, however, I have learned that the house and collection of an acquaintance including several pre-war Scott receivers was lost and that another…
