Antique Radio Repair and Services

Antique and Vintage Radio Restoration

A radio restoration consists of a basic set of services.  Many times, the parts replaced as part of the restoration will return most antique and vintage radios back to safe, reliable operation.  In order to determine the cost of your radio restoration, it will be necessary to inspect the chassis to determine its condition and what parts are required.

Merry Tunes is a business that takes pride in restoring your radios. It is competitive with regards to parts and services as well.

  • Restoration quotes involve replacing all marginal tubes, electrolytics, capacitors and out-of-tolerance resistors.
  • An in-line fuse is installed for safety measures.
  • We will also realign the set, restring new dial cords, and replace A/C line cords if required.
  • The radio will be cleaned in and out and all necessary moving parts will be lubricated.
  • At the end of every repair, a follow up 10 hour bench test is conducted.

Additional service cost will occur for replacing:

  • grille cloth
  • wires
  • power transformer
  • interstage transformer
  • intermediate transformer
  • audio transformer
  • speakers
  • knobs
  • pointer or dial scale
  • repairing the wooden and bakelite cabinet.

An inspection of your radio will be required to determine the exact cost.  Other services such as chassis rewiring and speaker reconing, if needed, would be additional.
