Hammarlund SP-150 Super- Pro Receiver

Beginning in July 1938, Hammarlund offered a customized SP-100 receiver in a floor standing console cabinet. The cabinet included doors that closed over the receiver panel and a 15" speaker with a bass reflex port. The receiver panel was faux finished walnut and had gold tone nomenclature along with brown knobs. The meter housing and dial escutcheons were trimmed gold and the dial masks were amber color instead of black. To assure that the receiver would appeal more to the shortwave listeners and home radio users, Hammarlund eliminated the front-panel control of the BFO, making it an internally set adjustment. The Crystal Filter option was not installed either. Otherwise, behind the panel the SP-150 receiver was a standard SP-100 series set.

What must have sounded like a great idea to Hammarlund, considering the success of Scott and McMurdo Silver high performance receivers, turned out to be a sales flop. The SP-150 was a superb receiver that was really never appreciated by very many people in the radio buying public. It just wouldn't do for hams - it had no BFO on the front and it was too big. It didn't have the Scott or McMurdo chrome chassis - how could you impress your friends? The rather plain cabinet couldn't compare to the flamboyant creations from Scott or McMurdo. As a high priced console, the SP-150 couldn't find many admirers even though it performed as well as any Scott or McMurdo and had a more accurate dial readout. Only about 70 were ever built, making it one of the most difficult Super-Pro receivers to find. The above description was taken from the description of the Hammarlund Super Pro receivers at the Western Historic Radio Museum . One can read more about the Hammarlund Super Pro receivers at

I have had this set for over 20 years and intended to fully restore it. However, I never did get around to it, never applied power to it, and now need to downsize my collection. This radio is in very good condition the radio itself has never been worked on and contains all of its original components (capacitors, resistors, etc.). The cabinet does have some problems as shown in the photographs - the Left hand rear upper corner is missing a piece of veneer and the front curved edge is starting to show some fracturing.

The radio is complete with original power supply, connecting cable, receiver chassis, & 15" Jensen speaker. I only know of one other example of this radio and that is in the AWA collection.

Although I have put FREIGHT as the shipping method, I will ship this radio. The chassis, power supply, & speaker would be shipped via UPS or USPO and the empty cabinet by Greyhound. Please wait before paying until after I Email the winning buyer with the shipping charges.
