a top of the range set from Ferguson, with a whopping 8 valves. The valve
count is helped not only by the inclusion of a tuning indicator but also
a pair of 42s are used in a push-pull configuration.
The set feels very American, with its oval tuning scale with propeller pointer and American valve lineup.
One does not expect to find bakelite on ones top range model ... so even the bakelite controls are painted in a wood effect.
|SERVICE DATA||A copy of the "Trader" service sheet #276 can be found on CD#3.|
|CURRENT STATE||In complete "as found" condition. The wood finish will be ok after a clean and some sratch cover, but the original grill cloth is stained. The tuning control is also sticking.|
|On The Air for effectively £67.50.|
Note the huge mains transformer
