PostSubject: Majestic 5A410 clone   2017-05-04, 7:31 am

The index on this forum is really "busy".  I hope this is in the right spot.

I apologize for lack of pictures.  I have not figured out how to post pics yet, so we get to use our imaginations until I do....

Why would anybody give two hoots about a Majestic 5A410, you ask?  This chassis is used in the far more valuable Coke radio of 1949.  There are actually two versions of the 5A410 chassis.  The 5A410(a) has a 12AV6 miniature tube replacing the 12SQ7 in the first version.  My Coke radio has the "A" version of this chassis.

A few years back, a friend gave me the clone version of this radio, a Stark model 1020.  Stark information is fairly scarce and Riders only lists two models.  The model 1010 was a four tuber and the 1020 that I have is a five tube.  Mine is a surprisingly good performer.  It was missing the speaker and had an open primary in the audio output transformer when I got it.  The dial and the cabinet are dead wringers for the Majestic version.  The knobs are different and the chassis has five miniature tubes.  Actually, the clone Stark chassis is a better performer (at least mine is) than the Majestic.  My Coke radio is only so-so in the way of performance.  Both of my Majestic chassis would benefit from a good component-by-component going over. 

I'll try to get some pictures posted.
