Greetings !!

Recently I got a set from a friend. Unfortunately the back cover is missing and there is no name plate or any marks on the set. This is 3 band 5 tubes sets with tubes - 6SG7-GT,6SQ7-GT,6SA7-GT, 5Y3-GT and probably 6K8-GT. The pictures are attatched, 

The set is working, however needs schemetic to restor it completely. 

Please help me to id this set. I am from India and may be this set is export model of a the manufacturer.

Warm Regards

Hello Uday,    Look at  the photos of this model radio from the Pye radio company from England. It is model P76. It is listed in this website. The cabinet is exactly the same, but uses Europeon tubes. The tubes in yoour radio are American. The radio is from the late 40s to the early 50s. From the looks of it the cabinet will need lots of work. Good luck.     Garrett

It's not a Pye P76 or P76F

Different tube bases, different chassis, different case, different scale.

I admit the chassis looks a little like an earlier Pye. But Packard wouldn't be on a Pye scale.

There is a Pye with a slightly similar cabinet, but very different scale.

There were Export models (PE prefix).

There were Octal types, though never USA valves. 

Maybe it's an export Packard Bell from USA, or the related Dutch or Belgian company. It is possible it's a Pye and someone changed tuning scale glass and tubes, but  I see no match even for chassis (the tuning is too central, Pye usually have it at one end). While there are a few cabinets with a similar arrangement they are different and it's a common style.

Dear Sir,

Greetings from Bangalore, India. As suggested by Mr. Garrett Walsh, I did check the  PYE P76. The cabinet is exactly same, however the Valve layout and circuit is different. As mentioned by you ,some one switched the chasis or modified the cabinet. The cabinet is redone as it looks. There was a Magic Eye slot in the cabinet , but it is missing in the set. 

The speaker says it is made in England. I am checking the all chasis pictures to see if i can spot one, 

Thank you so much for your reply and advise. With people like you and Mr.Garrett Walsh, advising us gives us a lot of confidence and more interest in this hobby. 

Thank you so much to both of you !

Kind Regards
