This item is an original piece of Grand Ole Opry history!! This item is an Eicor reel to reel tape recorder owned and used by the legendary HANK WILLIAMS SR. ! The original display plaque (included) reads: “HANK WILLIAMS SR ORIGINALLY OWNED AND RECORDED ON THIS TAPE RECORDER, WHICH LATER WAS GIVEN TO HANK SNOW BY AUDREY WILLIAMS”. Hank Snow and the Williams family were known to be close and Hank Snow also donated a number of great pieces to the museum back when it was still a major Nashville tourist stop. We have had the Eicor serial number checked by an antique electronics appraiser and their determination is that the machine is from 1950. The recorder housing / case shows some wear but still displays very nicely as you can see. This item would make a wonderful display in any museum setting!! To date NONE of the items authenticity has ever been brought into question! An incredible addition to any collection! Please check out our other offerings as well.
