Tape recorder inherited from my grandfather


Oh Nice!

Have a very soft spot for reel to reel machines. Have an old BBC Uher Reporter and my beloved Nagra E.

Great stuff!

Neat! There’s a guy with a couple of those for sale around here but I don’t really know what I’d do with them.

Are you going to make some loopz

I would love to turn this into some kind of space echo loop contraption.

Right now it powers up and makes some static, but the tape won’t actually move forward in play mode. Needs some debug.

That’s probably a rotten belt. Probably a couple of bucks to replace, and while you’re in there replace the oils and greases with modern, non-organic varieties.

I’m midway into a tape contraption myself!
