Vintage Regency TR-1 Transistor Radio in Mahogany color with gold accents pieces.

A few different worldwide companies (including a then-fledgling Sony) were tripping over themselves to bring transistor radios, the genesis of portable, handheld personal music devices to commercial markets. Regency & Texas instruments joined forces for more intuitive and affordable model. The due debuted the TR-1 in 1954, ostensibly making rock and roll accessible to the masses and allowing generations of baseball game attendees to keep one ear on the AM broadcast.

Dimensions: Approx. 5” x 3” x 1.5”

Sony TR-63 Black

The 1st Sony radio to be imported into the U.S.A in 1957 is the Sony TR-63. It was the first “shirt pocket” radio to utilize all miniature components. It was smaller than any transistor radio that preceded it. This radio also includes the original box.

Dimensions: Approx. 4.5" x 3" x 1.5"

Note: The Sony Radio Transistor Box appears worn. Both Transistor Radios shows signs of cosmetic flaws such as scrapes, dings, dents, and scratches. Radio may or may not be in working condition. Please contact us directly for more information regarding the condition of this item.
