|Vidor CN 396 and 396a
Return to The Portable Collection
|These are amongst my favourites in
the Vidor range. They are solidly built sets that are
easy to work on. They sound reasonable and the cases (despite
being covered in that omnipresent rexine!) came in plain
colours in the earlier models (burgundy and green being
prevalent) whilst later models (like the one pictured)
were offered in two-tone schemes of cream and blue, cream
and burgundy etc.
The 396a is the later model and its only difference is in chassis fixing (cunningly achieved through the case feet) and case covering.
