Hi all:I have been asked to quote the chassis restoration for an EH Scott 16.  Apparently this was about a 1937 to 1939 radio, which was about the time a lot of companies were starting to use the…Continue

"Great Scott!  (pun intended).  FIFTY TUBES??  Most people in the middle 1930s would have to put in a bigger breaker box just to plug that thing in!  The good news is, they would not need a furnace in the…"

"The AM/SW Philharmonic 30 tube was feature laden 1937-41. The FM/AM/SW 33 tube introduced mid 1940 sacrificed the volume expander to accommodate the FM circuit. 4 stage audio with final stage using four 6L6's in push-pull parallel and 15 inch…"

"E.H. Scott Radio Laboratories pinnacle receiver was the Quaranta series with 40 to 50 tubes depending on configuration.  The Philharmonic was their top of the line receiver after the Quaranta. Norman "

"Hi David so far I have not had occasion to work on any Scott radios.  I have worked on one McMurdo Silver masterpiece six.  At the time I considered it probably the pinnacle of a.m. radio.  (The 18 inch Jensen…"

"Mike - in the 1930's, each Scott radio was custom built upon receiving an order from a customer. No middle man. In 3 to 5 weeks it was shipped to the customer. There was a choice of cabinets at prices from $25 to well over $100. The cabinet was…"

"Wow.  I guess I didn't realize the Scott production numbers were that small.  I think it is a testament to their product that such a large percentage still survive after 80 years.    "

"Mike - Based on the serial numbers, Scott built about 1400 Sixteens and I have 104 serial numbers at this time. What we call common in the Scott world is still rare in the radio world. Even the most produced Scott (the AW23) only built just over…"

"Thanks Norman.  Based on your input my customer decided to pass on the radio.  He asked me to convey his thanks for your help and advice. Just a side note, you referred to the radio as…"

"Also, restoring a Sixteen is not difficult. If you want to see what you will get into, at the top of the site there is a link to the Scott Info Archive. Look in "Set Folders" and "16-18" and you will find the owners and service…"

"The cabinet could have a huge impact on the price too. If the 15 was sitting on a Napier, the 2k price wouldn't be a huge surprise. If it was a more common cabinet of the 15 period, the buyer might be disappointed down the road. As Norman said,…"

"Yes, $600 would be for an excellent original example or a functional restoration.  The Scott Allwave Fifteen is a more desirable model. Norman"

"Thanks Norman!  I presume that price is based on a restored, working set?  I saw a Scott Allwave 15 sold on radio attic for over $2000.  Both I and my customer were guessing this radio was worth something on the order of 12…"

"The Sixteen was Scott's economy model and is not particularly uncommon.  Nevertheless it is a very good sounding powerhouse of a radio when operating as originally intended.  The Braemer cabinet is also relatively common.  A…"
