"Very nice discussion on the Phantom. What is the serial number? I'm working on a Phantom Deluxe at the moment, they can be a pain to restore, some of the caps are rather deep in the chassis! Kent"

"This Philharmonic was being sold by Bruce from Waves in NYC.  I noticed that the power supply/amp was for a Phantom and let Bruce know.  He said he had no idea and the guy for whom he was holding it probably would not want it…"

"Russ - many cabinets came in different sizes. I once had 3 Waverly cabinets sitting in a row, all different sizes. I can't say that I've noted any differences in the Braemar, but I can't say I'm surprised. Kent"

"I did not realize that the Braemar cabinets for my 16 & Phantom were different until I put them in the same room. Phantom is about 4"shorter"

"The early Phantom has a candohm unit riveted to the side of the chassis, (as do the other Scott models like the Masterpiece and Super 12 ). After all these years, if any sections are good, consider it fragile.  I have had to replace them.…"

Thanks Joe,

At the moment I don't have a project so I am doing maintenance.

I only have 2 Scotts, both are working along with several hundred other radios on display at my shop.
