Diane and Gary restored our great-grandparents' broken 1931 tube radio to working order. Not only does it sound great, but it looks amazing! What a great family heirloom, it's almost a time machine! Thank you.

Take a look at Kyle's Screen Grid radio on the Before and After page. 


Gary told me he could get my old DelMonico up and going, and he did! Can't thank BiState Vintage enough for the time, effort and overall service they provided. Now back to my listening pleasure!

What an awesome business! Gary refurbished our late 1950s Olympic Opta and it works like a charm. Great attention to detail at a very fair price! They truly treat the radios like they're their own. My husband and I are so proud to have our family heirloom in working order! Thanks Gary and Diane!

I paid another place to restore it, and it never worked right. Gary did a great job restoring it. It's over 60 years old and plays like it's brand new!

You guys are amazing! I was restoring my mom & dad's old GE console stereo, first purchased in 1968, and where I used to listen to my albums and 45s when I was a kid. I'm able to handle the cabinet, and I'm handy enough to upgrade the speakers and the electronics, but I didn't know what to do about the metal bezel / escutcheon that held all of the controls. After decades if sitting in a damp basement, it was in REALLY poor shape. Every other place I contacted told me no, but then I ran across BiState. Diane was such a pleasure to deal with, and immediately gave me the confidence that they would recreate all the metal and plastic control labels for me. And they did! I was blown away at how well they came out! Perfect match of colors and fonts, and when it's complete, I'm positive nobody will ever know they were reproductions and not the actual factory produced product. I also have to say, it's not often you run across someone who is so pleasant, so helpful, and so confidence inspiring, and not someone who just treats you like a number. Diane was absolutely amazing from the initial contact through completing my job. I can't imagine how this whole experience could ever have been better. Thank you Diane! You're amazing!

Received in the mail from Smithton, IL, July 2019:


I just want say thanks again. I picked up the 1941 Philco record player today. I was amazed at how nice it looked. I couldn't wait to take it to my mom's house and show it to her and let her hear it play again. She was also very excited about how nice it looked. We sat and played some of her old records on it most of the afternoon. We had a great time. Just the joy in her face was worth every penny it cost to have the record player fixed. My mom turned 80 in April and to have her tell stories about the record player from when she was a kid was special. Thanks again, Gary and Diane!
