The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

1947 E H Scott 2 Tuners and Amplifier

Hi - I recently came across these 3 items, and have too many other projects(guitar amp related) to restore these - one tuner is super clean - would there be any interest in the group of 3? I am in Wichita, KS and have no way to ship these, so the would need to be picked up or meet somewhere not too far off from here - any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks - Brad Kelly.

Both are post war products of the Scott Radio Labs, of Chicago.

The receiver on the left (one SW band, two magic eyes) is the 24 tube 800-B of 1946-8.

The receiver on the right (no SW band and one Main eye) is  28 tube Metropolitan 16-A.

The AMP/power supply (with most of the FM circuitry) appears to be for the 800-B receiver.

The amp is part of the tube count.

cool - thanks for the info - is 450 fair for all 3?

As these are later sets, they aren't as exciting as the 1930s models. I had an extra 800B amp (only the amp), I put it in the ARCI auction last Friday, it brought $40.

for that kind of money, i'll just keep them and build a guitar amp or make an audio tube unit out of the amp - tubes are worth far more than that - LOL!
