The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
Over 20 years ago, I started photocopying and cataloging magazine articles and ads for Scott radios. I tried to create an index for these as well. This past weekend, I finally scanned in all the…Continue
I know - how am I asking this, right? Does anyone know if there is a schematic showing the pin connections for the Philharmonic and/or Phantom FM sets with the Jones plug connectors?I can't seem to…Continue
Big news folks! This week I purchased and moved a fairly good size collection of Scotts. I got four cabinets, 3 of those with sets, and about another dozen tuners and amps. I'm working on matching…Continue
I've been doing a lot of detailed work on some Scott sets lately and I've had the opportunity to notice numerous small differences between sets of the same model.THis phot is one example...I've seen…Continue
I have the following items for sale. Email me at email@example.com for more info. All of these are going to Kutztown, but if you email me and we make a deal beforehand, I'll make you a better deal....and all of these are reasonably priced, I need to thin things out around here.
1. Philharmonic Deluxe in a Warrington cabinet, tuner, amp and pedestal speaker, knobs, escutcheons - complete but unrestored.
2. Philharmonic pointer dial, remote control,…Continue
I've been restoring the early (5 knob) AW23 that was found on a trash pile in Columbus. This was the lightning strike set I wrote about in a different post a couple weeks ago.

First, the grid lead to the mixer (6A7)...in most sets, the lead comes out through the large tuning cap cover and feeds through a hole in a phenolic piece riveted to the 6B7 shield base. On this set, there is a…Continue
we hear lots of talk these days about supply chain, but Scott suffered from challenges for many years. Here is a new one for me....I am restoring the AW23 that fellow member Kevin found on the trash pile in Columbus a couple months ago. Got it up here over the weekend and opened it up...
it is 100% Potter capacitors. Now I have probably been…Continue
So, it looks like an AW23 speaker, but it doesn't have the two plugs for the tweeters and the stub cable (and no stub cable). The connector is like that used on the pointer Philharmonic (two large pins not together, not like a 23). Pin testing shows it should work on a Philly - but it is a 12 in and no Philly style tweeter connection either. But tagged Scott...I have two of these BTW...the other one has an AW23 style plug on it and tested it with an AW23 and it works great. Any thoughts…Continue
