PILOT MODEL 63
at Pilot obviously had a job lot of push button switches and decided to
try and use them all up on this upmarket model. From left to right, the
first four buttons providing various tone settings (bass, mellow, treble
and speech) and the second block of four provideing wavband selection (long,
medium, short) plus 'off'.
There are no less than five pilot lamps too. Two provide a general scale illumination with one of the three remaining lamps providing additional illumination of the selected waveband.
|SERVICE DATA||A copy of Trader service sheet 400 was obtained via the BVWS.|
|CURRENT STATE||For once, the camera actually makes the cabinet look better than it really
is. Whilst basically sound it really does need refinishing. After a bit
of digging around, it also seems that the black paint at the top of the
set is probably incorrect although it is just as scratched as the rest of
the cabinet and does nicely balance the painted feet.
There is light surface rust on the chassis although it is all there. The original mains-energised speaker has also been replaced with a permanent magnet type.
|WHERE FOUND||A left-over from Richard's recent NVCF bash. £75.|
