Philharmonic AM/FM

Posted on June 21, 2019 at 12:24am 47 Comments

Ever since I first heard of EH Scott radios and joined this forum, I've been looking for a Philharmonic to "fall into my lap". Well, when Ron R. sold me his Marine SLRM I saw his AM/FM Philharmonic sitting in the corner.  When he offered it for sale, I knew I would own it, I just didn't know how soon.  Now, a couple of months later, it's here in my possession.  Thank you Ron!

This will be a major project including some re-chroming.  I want to do the radio and Ron proud!  I…

Robert;

You are doing a great job on your 16! I too am amazed at the reduction in size of modern electrolytics. Lately I have been working on some Fisher tuners from the early 1960s. I am able to find high voltage rated individual electrolytics that easily fit inside the typical size multi-section electrolytics used in those products. Mike Hadley has an excellent thread on making the dogbone resistors and also making replacement bezels. Of course if you can find someone who has already reproduced the one you need, go for it. It is encouraging to others to see how well many of these radios are being restored!

Keep us updated.

Robert,

Thank you for the warm welcome.  My apologies for the delay in my reply but i'm not only new here but relatively new to discussion groups, forums etc. You are absolutely correct when you said that a lot can be learned here.  Been here a short time and I've already learned a lot.

Robert: As far as we know the Allen is in storage at the theatre. The speakers are still in the chambers, but not being used with the Kimball. It has its own set of 20 Klipsch and 4 other speakers  located in the chambers. 10 on House left, main side and 14 on house right, solo side. The amplifiers are in the console and all new 4 conductor cable was run to the chambers. 12 4 conductor Neutrik plugs and sockets connect everything.

Robert: Have you gotten the chassis back yet? You mentioned a friend of yours that knows Dennis and I. Dennis is the 'house' organist for the Buster Keaton Society in Muskegon We meet the first weekend in October closest to Buster's birthday with conferences at the Museum and a silent at the Frauenthal theatre on Saturday night. Starts Friday and ends Sunday afternoon. The organ at the Frauenthal suffered water damage last year and is being rebuilt by Andy Struble with some additions from Hauptwerk and a Paramount sample set. It should be ready by the time of the convention.

  The Barton had been a composite of pipes and electronics for years, so this rebuild is replicating what was there with newer technology. Eight ranks of pipes in house left chamber and electronics in house right chamber, which is too small to house pipes.

No, not yet.  I expect another 3 weeks or so.  If it looks good, I'm ready to send them the tuner chassis and parts.  I'll wait with the coil covers.

Yes, I've met Andy.  Joel and I are quite familiar with the Frauenthal, and Joel is very familiar with the organ.  Don't have anything to do with the restoration, however.  I'm not sure what sample set Joel has for his Hauptwerk in his house.  He's using an old 3 manual Allen console.

I just bought a E.H. Scott Philharmonic in a Warrington cabinet......I will go get it, as soon as, the fires in Oregon and California subside......I'm mostly a coin-op guy, jukeboxes, slot machines, etc., so I don't know if I'm going to keep the Scott radio or resell it?
