Hughes Vintage Vibraphone / Electric Vibraphone

This is a cool piece. Vintage Vibratron by Hughes Co. Maybe I'll eventually fix it up. That depends on if I still have it. Right now it is offered as it sits, as is. This looks complete with the exception of the chord/line needed to put the bars (total of 30) back in place, and the belt that runs from the motor to the wheels that spin the metal disks that create the TRON / Tremolo sort of effect. SO, I don't know of level of functionality. Motor has VERY frayed chord, and I plugged it in, and turned on switch and got nothing, then turned it off and on again, and I got sound, but did not see the wheel spinning. I was afraid of shock or blowing a fuse, so I unplugged and do not plan to plug it in again. There is a red felt bar on top. That mutes or dampens the bars, and a pedal that attached (I do have that) brings that bar down so bars will sustain, I guess sort of like a piano sustain pedal. I don't know if there is any control to the motor and spinning of things inside the tone tubes, other than On and Off. That said, see pics and Let me know if you got questions.
