Vintage 1950's PILOTROL Hi Fi MONO Preamp that Features a Microphone input.  This is a rare piece that could be used for a microphone preamp and for a hi fi setup.  It uses 6 tubes including 12ax7, 12au7, 5879 and a 6x4 rectifier.

It has inputs for microphone, phono, Aux, Tape, and Radio.  It has a dual output for recording and monitoring.

In addition to bass and treble controls, It also features buttons to select different playback frequency curves. 

I turned it on briefly to see that the lights come on and I saw some tubes glowing. Beyond that, it's going to need to be rebuilt / recapped.   I was thinking for studio use, it would be best to mod it to be transformer balanced.
Also, somebody replaced the faceplate.  You can buy a new brass blank plate for around $30 that you could have engraved to look even better than most vintage ones.

It is sold "as is" at a price to take into account the things that will be needed to restore it.
I have seen these go for as much as $1500 when completely rebuilt. 

$525 plus shipping to your location.   P.M. if interested
