EH Scott Radio Enthusiasts

The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

Greetings all.

I just posted in my blog about a small hoard of radios I recently obtained. Please check it out and let me know if any questions.

In the process of getting some pictures, so stay tuned.

Thanks, Darrell

Hi Darrell,

What are you plans for all these Scott radios? You do have a 27 tube Imperial in this lot.

Cheers,

John

Darrell,  I have a good friend who is interested in purchasing the Allwave 27.  He's been looking for an Allwave 27 for some time, and will pay a very fair price for it.  You can contact me on this site or call me at 763-443-6646.  Thanks very much.  John Goedeke

Hi Darrell,

I am also interested in the 27 tube Imperial and have no problem with price. So probably are a number of Scott collectors. I imagine you will get a number of inquiries regarding that particular Scott.

It is wonderful you were able to save all these Scotts.

Please let me you plans for them.

Cheers,

John

Too bad they were not saved about 39 years ago.

John - do look through the radios in the photo section, and focus on group 4.

Hi Dave,

It is a 27 tube Imperial with the correct power supply, speaker, and tweeters. The tweeters look as if they are fresh out of the box. I would be interested in learning what cabinet these came from and a little more of the history as to who owned them. I am glad Darrell saved these and made photos available to this forum. I suspect the original owner had a strong connection with the company and may have been a service representative.

Darrell, can you provide more details as to the origin and previous owner? If there was a strong affiliation with the company, they may some paperwork and literature available. Also, any information on cabinets would be welcomed. You did something really great in saving these radios.

Cheers,

John
Hi Darrell,

Another interesting radio is the "unknown radio 8." Do you know if there is an associated power supply to this radio or and company serial number plate on it. This is the radio with three bands and the tuning eye below.

Kent, what are you thoughts on this particular radio? It is post war by the construction.

Cheers,

John

I may have interest in the Philharmonic pending high quality pictures and being able to source a new dial...

Hi Darrell,

I live in Greenville, NC. Is it possible to see this collection of Scott radios? Again, I am most interested in the 27 tube Imperial, but all are of interest.

Cheers,

John

John:

Capehart comes to mind when I look at this chassis set.  I have not verified this however.

I agree I think it is Capehart, post WW II. John

Capehart is probably it.

Let me fill in some of the details on this collection and that will help. The person that put this together must have been a technician as there were repair tickets in some of the various boxes. He lived in the Chicago area and moved down to N.C. in the late 60's or early 70's. At that point, it seems all of the gear was packed into a small outdoor shed and that is where it remained. The house where these were located changed residents in the late 80's and the family is still there. During all that time, they never moved the gear. The parents moved out of the home and their daughter now resides there with her husband and child. As a growing family, the husband finally decided to clean out the shed and an adjoining building that his father-in-law stored hundreds of car parts. He was taking it all to the landfill.

By sheer coincidence, I happened to talk to a friend of his about something else and mentioned my interest in audio. He gave my number to the husband and called me to come over and see if anything was of interest before dumping it.

With the Scott radios were also the following:

- (2) Capehart drivers

- RCA LC1 driver

- Altec 604C

- Stentorian driver

- McIntosh MC30 amp

- Altec A340A amp

- Fisher radio in cabinet with a Craftsmen 500 amp and JBL driver

- Several boxes of tubes

- many other various items like turntables, small tuners, etc.

With the exception of the one AW23, all of the other Scott radios I have did not have cabinets. I have taken some pictures of the AW23 cabinet and it can be restored (posting pictures shortly).

Hi Darrell,

The 23 tube Imperial Cabinet is a Tasman cabinet.  This is the most common cabinet that the 23 tube Imperial is found in.  It was named after Tasman, NZ, on south island New Zealand.   It can be restored. 

Cheers,

John
