AR 3A black


Recommended Posts

Hello, Freek -

Someone probably just painted over the walnut veneer and molding.

Unless it's an automotive urethane finish (doubtful), it should be possible to strip and refinish the cabinets. There are some real experts on this site who can provide excellent guidance, if you want to do this.

How much does the AR-3a sell for in Belgium?

I agree with AR_pro.  It looks like you have a veneer over particle board under that black paint.  I would recommend sanding off some of the paint from the bottom of the speaker to confirm.  If you do have a veneer under the paint, my own experience says that is worth the effort to refinish the speakers.  A while back I acquired a pair of AR-15’s that also had been painted black.  The photo below shows black paint vs. refinished.  With that veneer, I could never understand why anyone would have painted them in the first place.
