This is a rare model General Electric model A64. It was in GE's 'Upright' line which later became known as 'Tombstone'. This shape made more room for a larger speaker which in the A64 was about as large as was being produced at the time, 2 watts! It now has 240watt which is the most powerful system I've been able to squeeze into a vintage radio whilst keeping all of the original components. If you like your double bass this radio will not disappoint!

The History of this Radio:

In 1876, Thomas Alva Edison opened a new laboratory in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Out of the laboratory was to come perhaps the most famous invention of all-a successful development of the incandescent electric lamp. By 1890, Edison had organized his various businesses into the Edison General Electric Company.

In 1879, Elihu Thomson and E. J. Houston formed the rival Thomson-Houston Company. It merged with various companies and was later led by Charles A. Coffin, a former shoe manufacturer from Lynn, Massachusetts. Mergers with competitors and the patent rights owned by each company put them into dominant positions in the electrical industry. As businesses expanded, it became increasingly difficult for either company to produce complete electrical installations relying solely on their own technology. In 1892, these two major companies combined, in a merger arranged by financier J. P. Morgan, to form the General Electric Company, with its headquarters in Schenectady, New York.

In 1896, General Electric was one of the original 12 companies listed on the newly-formed Dow Jones Industrial Average. GE is the only one that remains today. The Radio Corporation of America (RCA) was founded by GE and American Telephone & Telegraph (AT&T) in 1919 to further international radio.

GE founded the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) in 1919 to further international radio. GE used RCA as its retail arm for radio sales from 1919, when GE began production, until separating with RCA (AT&T) in 1930. After this the two companies were in direct competition. Both companies were responsible for some of the best looking radios ever made......in my view and both companies are still going strong today.
