Found this 1950's Seeburg Teardrop Wall Speaker in the attic of my mom's church.
I was hired to do some designing work for the church for a remodeling project. I needed to climb into the attic above the old soundroom...and look what I found!
It's all original and all there, but a little rough. It will be a fun restoration project this Winter and will look great with my Seeburg Jukebox.
Note second image; I couldn't wait to restore this teardrop speaker, so i tore right into it.
I completly disassembled it, polished the chrome pieces. To my delight the chrome was near perfect!
Then I stripped the coat of paint that someone had added later, being very careful not to damage the original finish under the sloppy recoat.
Put a wax job on the old finish to bring back a mellow shine...still has a old look
Then if found an appropriate vintage 50's-60's grill cloth(the original grill cloth was completly shot)
Reassembled and nstalled the original speaker, which still sounds quite good
Ready to hook up to the '57 Seeburg juke box
