Retrograde. Bamboozlement! More Bamboozlement!

Pyramid Television Ad, late 1980


Pyramid is one of the very few brands that use only 'wave' soldering. A fully-automated process for cent per cent accuracy.
The difference between an electronic sewing machine and a crude hand-stitch.

Khoj to Chitrahaar non-stop the 48-hour stress test.


The best time to service a TV is when it's working perfectly.

We call it preventive maintenance. And it's free service to all Pyramid owners.

Every three months during the first year, our engineer will pay you a visit.

He'll adjust your antenna, clean the set and give it a thorough check-up. Any minor problems are nipped in the bud.

48 hours! What was the need?

  6. Hi, I'm working on a project on the evolution of Indian Television. Would you know of places where I can find advertisements of old Television brands like the one you've posted here? Anything from before the 90's would do. Any available material would be an enormous favour. thanks. :)
