You don't get a "repair"!  You get a "restoration"!!  Trust your heirloom to us!

A big shout out to our friends at Laser Concepts!  Dennis and Melissa took a broken escutcheon and recreated it.  Our artist, Steve, completed it by painting it gold.




Before:



After:  Added new legs, replaced grill cloth, replaced the broken escutcheon.  (These are just the changes to the appearance.  There was a lot of mechanical work done on this machine, too.)

Even consoles/record changers/hi-fis that have been well taken care of have 50+ years of gunk.  This piece was serviced somewhere else and was greased and lubed over the dust and dirt.  This is NOT how BiState Vintage Radio Repair services your beloved piece!



All components of YOUR radio or record player or equipment will be cleaned like new and refurbished before it leaves BiState Vintage Radio Repair.  Often it'll be better than new because when it was new, it was built on an assembly line.  Now it will be refurbished by Gary painstakingly by hand!

The cabinet on this 1953 Zenitheatre is in good shape, but the electronics, not so much.  It is being fully restored to like-new function for a customer.

The record being played is called "Hula Blues" and is available for sale in our shop!



This is what Lost in Space looked like when we watched it in 1966 in black and white!  This Zenitheatre is now fully restored and better than new!
