the first one made in 1959-60 with straight cabinet Design.
That's a first class tube radio with 4 orginal Saba Greencone Speakers and 2 x
EL95 Amp Tubes plus one ECC83 Pre Amp Tube.
A clear loud and typical Saba famous sound does serve this radio to your ears.
The Radio is total restored...!! Yes also the cabinet got a full restoration.
The Radio is inside and outside like mint now.
"The Cabinet: We did remove the old damaged varnish complete , repaired the broken
parts of the orignal veneer and started to built a new laque coat up.
Covered with Patina airbrush to give the radio cabinet the original look back.
Finally the radio got 8 high glossy high class PUR varnish coats which we did polish
in a very time intensive work to a perfect mirror effect. Here is not a single scratch on the cabinet, it's like you got it directly in the year 1959 from the store.
Note: That's not simply resprayed!!!! we are no dealers of radios we are a restoration company...That's a big difference ,because we could respray that cabinet simply and you would maybe never note that. Only later when the old cracks of the old varnish appear again under the new laque coat...that calls resprayed...but we did here a full high class restoration in the original way like they did it in the 50- 60s. Our store costumers do know that already how we are working and where the differences are.
"The Chassis: had before it's restoration many problems, please watch the left video below , there we show you a few things we did on that chassis. WE gave the radio 2
Hightone speakers also original Saba ones. The High tone speakers which was before inside the radio was not able to use anymore, they had damaged coils. The output transformator is also replaced with a great working one, the circutis are tested and we wrote the testing values inside the shematic which you will get from us.
