Model 15-U-270, 1938. From
this model forward, the 15-tube cabinets started getting
more exquisite and more expensive.
This entire line uses the 1501 chassis, but this
model and the 15-U-271, with a mahogany cabinet, are the
only ones that utilize two speakers, a 12” woofer and a
6” tweeter. Many
of the surviving 15-U-270’s suffer from cracking burl on
the curved areas on each side of the dial.
This console was priced at $225.00 and the mahogany
version was $10 more.
