Speaker Cloth Cream KB FB10

After dismantling a set I discovered originally the cloth had been green instead of 'gold'. The best result to give it back a shiny green colour is the use of a green whiteboard marker (I used Stabilo plan42) It can be done without removing the cloth, but be careful for not greening the ureumforaldehyde cabinet as well!

Changes in the valve lineup of this Kolster Brandes radio (known as "The Toaster") were made during the production run. After serial number 110,000, the valves used were 6BE6, 6BJ6, 6AT6, 6BW6 and 6V4. Other valve substitutes during production have also been reported, and my own model contains a 6BE6, 6BA6, 6AT6, 6BW6 and 6X5GT.
