Question 1962 stromber-carlson console sterio- help

I have a large wood 1962 stromberg-carlson AM/FM radio with record player console model #. I am looking for more information on the rarity. AM/FM radio works but the record player, unfortunalty does not; I believe due to a bad switch. I have searched countless hours online for information and have not even found a picture of one. Is this a rare item?

please help

here is a picture i took of mine

Questions of value usually get bumped to Dollars and Sense forum. You'll probably get more info in the tube forum. Might want to edit out the value questions. It probably has a nice little push pull 6V6 stereo amp, can't tell you much else.

looks like a record changer, Is that a record changer or a manual tt? My guess is this is a 63 or later model. a front pic would be nice.

That looks a bit different from either one I've messed with, but looks more like the one that had a SE 7408 amp, the ASR-110. My Penthouse is much longer, with a section on each side of the lid. If you can take off the back & grab pics of the amp & drivers, we can offer more help.

That is the same as the one I picked up a few years back. Sinse you don't have a pic of the amp, its either the ASR-110 or ASR-120. The ASR-110 is single ended 7408's & the ASR-120 is push/pull 7408's. Both have the 7199 drivers and 6CA4 rectifier. I believe Tom Bavis has both schematics. I got my ASR-120 schematic from him.

Its a record changer. You can tell by the long spindle that's able to hold a stack. A manual TT usually does not have the long spindle or arm to hold the records, and/or the "REJ" option. That particular TT has the speed control as the outer knob, and off-on-rej as the inner round control.

The changer is a Voice of Music changer. IIRC it's a 12xx series unit. Lift it out and look for the model and serial #'s as outlined on the V-O-M site. They also have parts for the changer too.

your info from the changer doesn't match up with what VOM is saying.
it's quite possible that S-C put their own info on it also.
Here's the link you want to check on the changer http://www.thevoiceofmusic.com/do_i_have_vm.html


Did it not come with legs??? It looks like the type that should have at least 7"or 8" legs.

Cool pics. As others have said, that looks to be the single-ended model ASR-110. I think Tom Bavis has schematics plus the Sams for the console on his website: http://www.audiophool.cjb.net/MadeInRoch.html (scroll down)

Not really, pretty standard Stromberg console. Nicer in some cases than some of the Magnavox's. Its in poor shape to be worth a lot of money, but is it worth fixing? Yeah! Finish work isn't too hard, and it probably just needs a few capacitors replaced. Would I dump a couple hundred into it? No.

The Record Changer is not VM, it is a Glaser Steers, these changers are rather unique in that the platter stops spinning before the record drops, then
starts spinning again when the arm lands on the record.

Nice looking Modern style console, would probably be an easy restore.

I agree you have a Glaser/Steers changer installed. The overarm and general styling does not appear to be V-M of the period. It's a much better than average console in sonics and build, only Fisher, Ampex or HH Scott are rivals here. Worth some love and restoration. The Stromberg-Carlson consoles are superb sounding and the better of the herd.

I'll be damned. I coulda sworn it was a VOM. Learned something new today. (Boy am I in trouble......Old dogs, new tricks!)
