[ Belgisch douane zegel, blik, aan touwtje nr.AAD14 ]

German made in 1958, exported to and sold in Belgium, Belgian customs label inside # AAD14 - beige leather sewn case - six early Toshiba transistors in socket (2S-series) - M / L wave - six 1,5V cells AA, holder on back panel, supplies 9 Volt.

 

Music Transistor Boy 100

This is an evaluation of the radio above built in 1959, intended for market issue in 1960. It has 6 early Philips / Valvo transistors inside. This radio has the same schematic diagram as the Music Transistor Boy 59, but has some newer parts inside. This radio came to me in defect condition, the first MF stage did not work, since the transistors were socketed repair was easy, luckely I had an original Valvo transistor OC170 with yellow paint printing in stock, now the radio works fine again.

 

Music - Boy Transistor 200

Early radio, It has 6 early Philips / Valvo transistors inside. This radio has nearly the same schematic diagram as the Music Transistor Boy 59 and 100, but has some newer parts inside. 

 

Music - Boy 400

This is a typical 1960s Grundig radio, Grundig made many radios in this type of design - the Music Boy 400 is an AC/DC,  LW/MW/FM radio from approx. 1965. This radio was sold to other radio sellers under different brand names like: the LUMOPHON model 'Herz Koenig' (see elswere at this site), although it lackes the LW. It is a quality radio and still plays very well with very good FM quality and the typical 'Grundig sound' that most post war Grundig radios have.

 

Music Boy Universal

This radio is a 1961 Grundig radio, Grundig made many radios in this type of design - the Music Boy Universal is a DC,  LW/MW/FM. It is a quality radio and still plays very well with very good FM quality and the typical 'Grundig sound' that most post war Grundig radios have.

Top Boy 500

This is a typical 1960s Grundig radio, Grundig made many radios in this same type of design - the Top Boy 500 is an AC/DC - AM/FM radio from approx. 1968. It is a quality radio and still plays very well with very good FM quality and the typical 'Grundig sound' that most post war Grundig radios have.

 

model Micro Boy 300

1121.jpg (8740 bytes)

Conventional AM pocket radio made in Japan for grundig from the 1970s with 6 silicon transistors. This radio lack the traditional Grundig sound and construction quality.

 

model Micro Boy 20

Member of the last BOY series,  (made in 1984 in Germany), pocket radio series radios made by Grundig. It has LW/MW and employs 1 IC: Telefunken TDA 1083. This radio employs the same cabinet as the radio below Transistor Boy 35. This radio lack the traditional Grundig sound and construction quality.

 

 

model Transistor Boy 35

Member of the last TRANSISTOR BOY,  (made in 1985 in Germany), pocket radio series radios made by Grundig. It has AM/FM and 3 transistors and 1 IC. This radio lack the traditional Grundig sound and construction quality.

 

 

model Music Boy 60

Later Music Boy model from approx. 1985 It employs more modern parts, 2 IC's and 2 transistors.

 

model Yacht Boy 210

picture soon available

Multiband radio with extended SW band from 1988. It employs 3 IC's and several transistors.

 

model Mini Boy 300

Small AM/FM radio. Plays well and is nicely built.

 

model prima Boy

Early small AM/FM radio of 1960. Not very well built pcb. FM frontend employs the notorious AF 114/115 series transistors.

 

model Transonette 89

All transistor early table AM/FM radio from approx 1959. AC/DC. With early Valvo and Telefunken Transistors. Radio is property of Herm Willems.
