Teac X-1000r Reel To Reel Tape Deck Recorder Serviced & 30 Day Guarantee
We have a large variety of TEAC reel to reel tape decks in stock. And not all of the decks are listed. So if you are looking for a particular model of TEAC, please ask. THE PHOTOS IN THE LISTING ENLARGED. (10.5 & 7). (NO NEED TO “FLIP OVER THE REELS”). NO NEED TO FLIP. 30 DAY GUARANTEE TO WORK PERFECTLY!! WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING. Every part of this deal was great! TEAC TASCAM 32-2B N. Gary went beyond what I expected. Helped this neophyte SO much! Gary will knock himself out to make sure you are satisfied! TEAC X-1000M 15 I. N. A. B& I. FROM THE BLOG SECRETS OF HOME THEATER AND HIGH FIDELITY BY MEL MARTIN (ALSO A CUSTOMER) HERE ARE EXCERPTS FROM HIS JANUARY 31, 2018 EDITORIAL REEL-TO-REEL RECORDERS IS THERE A RESURGENCE? A month or so later I found a Teac x-1000r which had similar specs but added auto-reverse, so it would play both sides of a tape without having to take the reels off to flip sides. I was proving the point. Says his tech, Tom Tran, is among the most knowledgeable engineers. For all things audio. YOU CAN FIND THE ENTIRE ARTICLE, COMPLETE WITH A NUMBER OF MY TEAC TAPE DECK PHOTOS ON THE INTERNET. IF THE SPECS CALL FOR 30 TO 20,000 HZ FREQUENCY RANGE, THE TAPE DECK CAN BE TESTED FOR THAT USING A TONE GENERATOR AND AN OSCILLOSCOPE. AND, AS A TAPE DECK GOES THROUGH ITS LIFE, IN MOST CASES, LIKE ALMOST ANYTHING MECHANICAL OR ELECTRONIC, PERFORMANCE SLIDES A BIT. AND WHAT SOUNDED EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD WHEN NEW, NOW SOUNDS A LITTLE DULL AND MUFFLED. IT DOESNT HAVE TO BE THAT WAY. AND MY TECHNICIAN USES NOT ONLY A TONE GENERATOR AND OSCILLOSCOPE TO DETECT POOR PERFORMANCE AND TO PROVE RESTORED PERFORMANCE; HE ALSO HAS AND USES METERS TO CHECK WOW AND FLUTTER, TAPE TENSION GAUGES, AND ALL THE OTHER PROFESSIONAL EQUIPMENT NECESSARY FOR A QUALITY RESTORATION. AND BECAUSE THE RESTORATION IS DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. I HAVE NO PROBLEM PROVIDING A 30 DAY PERFECT PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE WITH EACH TEAC DECK I SELL. THIS DECK IS NO EXCEPTION. THE TEAC X-1000R IS A. TWO CHANNEL, FOUR TRACK. AND IT CAN PLAY VIRTUALLY ANY FOUR TRACK TAPE THAT HAS BEEN RECORDED AT ETHER THE STANDARD 3-3/4 I. SPEEDS BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC ON HOME STEREO TAPE RECORDERS. IT PLAYS TRACKS 1 AND 3 IN ONE DIRECTION. AND WHEN AUTO REVERSE IS SELECTED, IT PLAYS TRACKS 2 AND 4 (JUST LIKE ANY STANDARD TAPE RECORDER WITH THE AUTO REVERSE FEATURE). BUT IT IS ANYTHING BUT A. A FEW FEATURES THAT TAKE. IT OUT OF THE. BI-DIRECTIONAL RECORDING, BI-DIRECTIONAL PLAYBACK. THE AUTOMATIC REVERSE FEATURE, A “CONTINUOUS PLAY” FEATURE. DUAL CAPSTAN DRIVE, SUPERIOR TENSION ARMS. A FREQUENCY RESPONSE OF 30 TO 34,000 HZ. INERTIA ROLLERS, AND AN AUTOMATIC TIMER FEATURE. AND THERE ARE MORE. FEATURES SUCH AS ELECTRONIC BRAKING, REAL TIME PAUSE, PUNCH IN RECORDING, AUTO SKIP PLAYBACK, AUTO SPACER, TIMER FEATURE, SEARCH TO ZERO, SEARCH TO CUE, AND BLOCK REPEAT. IT HAS INPUT CAPABILITY TO MAKE A RECORDING FROM VIRTUALLY ANY SOURCE (CDS, FM, ANOTHER TAPE DECK, MINI-DISC PLAYER, RECORD TURNTABLE, AND OF COURSE, MICROPHONE). AND IT CAN RECORD AND PLAY 10.5 AND 7 REELS OF TAPE. ACCESSORIES (SUCH AS THE METAL REELS, AND HUBS) SHOWN IN THIS LISTING ARE FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES ONLY, AND ARE NOT A PART OF THE SALE. THIS LISTING IS FOR THE TAPE DECK ONLY. IF YOU NEED ACCESSORIES. THERE ARE DISTINCT ADVANTAGES TO ADDING AN ACCESSORIES KIT TO THE LISTING. YOU SAVE TIME IN THAT YOU DONT HAVE TO INVEST TIME RESEARCHING EACH INDIVIDUAL ACCESSORY SEPARATELY. HERE IS A DESCRIPTION OF THE KITS. CONSISTS OF THE TWO 10.5 AMPEX 456 REELS SHOWN, AND THE TWO TEAC TZ-612 HUBS, SHOWN IN THIS LISTING. ONE OF THE REELS IS LOADED WITH 3600 OF FRESH BLANK (NEVER RECORDED ON) RMGI LPR35-34512 (1.0 MIL) TAPE (IN BRAND NEW CONDITION). THE OTHER REEL (SHOWN) COULD ACT AS A TAKE-UP REEL. ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS KIT IS A BRAND NEW COPY OF THE TEAC X-1000R OWNERS MANUAL, AND A PACKAGE OF 25 FRESH NEW AUTO REVERSE SENSING FOIL STRIPS. CONSISTS OF ALL THE ITEMS MENTIONED IN THE FIRST KIT, PLUS TWO BRAND NEW RCA PATCH CORDS, ONE 7 TAKE-UP REEL AND TAKE-UP REEL STORAGE BOX, ONE 7 REEL OF AMPEX PRT 1200 BLANK TAPE (NEVER RECORDED UPON BEFORE,, STILL SEALED IN AMPEX FACTORY CELLOPHANE). BECAUSE THE 10.5 PLASTIC REELS ARE PLASTIC RATHER THAN METAL, THEY ARE LESS EXPENSIVE. AND BECAUSE THEY EMPLOY THE STANDARD THREE BLADE LOCK DOWN SLOTS, NO N. HUBS ARE NEEDED TO SECURE THE REELS TO THE REEL TABLES. HUBS ALSO REDUCES THE CASH OUTLAY IN ORDER TO GET STARTED. ONE OF THE REELS WOULD ACT AS A TAKE UP REEL, THE OTHER WILL BE LOADED WITH 3600 OF BRAND NEW R. LPR 35-34512 (1.0 MIL) TAPE. BOTH REELS COME WITH AMPEX 456 STANDARD STORAGE BOXES. THE KIT #3 ALSO INCLUDES A BRAND NEW COPY OF THE TEAC X-1000R OWNERS MANUAL AS WELL. COSMETIC APPEARANCE OF THIS TEAC X-1000R TAPE DECK RECORDER. COSMETICS ARE REALLY VERY PERSONAL. SOME PEOPLE REQUIRE ABSOLUTE PERFECTION, WHILE OTHERS CAN OVER LOOK A MINOR SCRATCH OR SCUFF. CONDITION OF THIS TEAC X-1000R TAPE RECORDER. THIS X-1000R IS, IN MY OPINION, IN. IT HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY SERVICED AND TESTED BY TOM TRAN , WITH ” SAVE ON SOUND “, HERE IN HOUSTON. TOM TRAN OWNS ” SAVE ON SOUND ” WHICH HAS BEEN SERVICING HOUSTON’S REEL TO REEL TAPE DECK NEEDS FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS , IN THE SAME LOCATION. (PICTURED IN PHOTO #12). THE FINAL BENCH TEST FOUND THIS DECK TO BE OPERATING PERFECTLY, WITHIN TEACS ORIGINAL DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS. EVERYTHING ON THE DECK IS IN PERFECT WORKING CONDITION. I WAS PRESENT AND WITNESSED THE FINAL BENCH TEST RECENTLY; AND EVERYTHING WORKED PERFECTLY. NOTE: THIS IS A LOW MILEAGE DECK; IT WAS NOT USED VERY MUCH. 30 DAY SERVICE GUARANTEE AND SUPPORT AFTER THE SALE. I MAINTAIN A CONSTANTLY CHANGING INVENTORY OF APPROXIMATELY 80 TEAC REEL TO REEL TAPE DECKS. (SHOWN IN PHOTO #11). AND, BECAUSE MY BUSINESS IS AN ONGOING BUSINESS, AFTER THE 30 DAY GUARANTEE PERIOD, IF THE OWNERS DECK HAS A MALFUNCTION , AND THE OWNER WANTS ASSISTANCE IN. CORRECTING THE MALFUNCTION, THE OWNER CAN CALL ME FOR TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE, OR FOR REPAIR. FORTUNATELY TEAC PARTS LOCATIONS AND OTHER TEAC PARTS DISTRIBUTORS FOUND AROUND THE WORLD, STILL MAINTAIN A LARGE SUPPLY OF MOST PARTS FOR MOST TEAC DECKS. THERE ARE TWO FAIRLY GOOD YOUTUBE VIDEOS THAT COVER MOST OF THE OPERATIONAL FEATURES OF THE X-1000R. THE FIRST ADDRESS IS s_dhMLxNWeM. AND THE SECOND ONE IS 4MoF6fiFak4. GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF A FEW OF THE MECHANICAL AND ELECTRONIC FUNCTIONS OF THE TEAC X-1000R. STANDARD FOUR TRACK RECORDING AND PLAYBACK. THE TEAC X-1000R IS A STANDARD FOUR TRACK TAPE RECORDER. OR IT CAN PLAY 7 TAPES YOU RECORDED IN THE PAST. AND IT HAS THE ABILITY TO RECORD AND PLAY 10.5 TAPES AS WELL. WHEN USING 10.5 REELS OF TAPE, YOU HAVE SEVERAL HOURS OF RECORDING TIME AT YOUR COMMAND. THE TWO MOST COMMON TAPE LENGTHS IN 10.5 REEL SIZE ARE 2500 FEET AND 3600 FEET. WITH A 3600 FOOT REEL OF TAPE YOU HAVE THREE HOURS OF RECORD TIME IN ONE DIRECTION AT 3-3/4 IPS TAPE SPEED, OR. SIX HOURS TOTAL TIME IF YOU RECORD IN BOTH DIRECTIONS ON THE TAPE. EVEN AT THE SLOW SPEED OF 3-3/4 I. THE X-1000R DELIVERS AN IMPRESSIVE FREQUENCY RESPONSE. OF 30 TO 24,000 HZ!! ALL OF THE FEATHER-TOUCH ELECTRONIC CONTROLS ARE IDEALLY LAID OUT FOR ERROR-FREE ONE-HAND OPERATION. YOU CAN PRECISELY ROCK THE TAPE BACK AND FORTH TO FIND A DESIRED SELECTION, OR TO PINPOINT RECORDING LOCATIONS. BECAUSE OF THIS OUTSTANDING TEAC ENGINEERING FEATURE, THERE IS ALMOST NO POSSIBILITY OF TAPE DAMAGE DUE TO STRETCHING AND ALMOST NO POSSIBILITY OF TAPE SPILLAGE! AS WITH ALL MAJOR FUNCTIONS OF THE X-1000R, THE FAST FORWARD AND FAST REWIND FUNCTIONS ARE ALSO CONTROLLED BY FINGER-TOUCH SOLENOID OPERATION. (SOLENOID SWITCH CONTROLS SHOWN IN PHOTO #6 OF THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS). NOT ALL DECKS OFFER THIS HANDY FEATURE. THIS KNOB ALLOWS YOU TO CONTROL THE OUTPUT SIGNAL THAT GOES FROM THE TAPE DECK TO YOUR STEREO SYSTEM. BY TURNING THE KNOB YOU CAN EASILY ADJUST THE SIGNAL LEVEL TO EQUAL THE VOLUME LEVEL OF OTHER COMPONENTS IN YOUR STEREO SYSTEM. THIS MEANS THAT YOU CAN LOWER OR RAISE THE OUTPUT SIGNAL TO MATCH THE LEVEL OF YOUR OTHER COMPONENTS (SO THAT ONE COMPONENT IS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY LOUDER THAN ANOTHER, WHEN SWITCHING BETWEEN COMPONENTS). OUTPUT CONTROL SHOWN IN PHOTO #6 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS. THE FREQUENCY RESPONSE OF THE TEAC X-1000R IS NOTHING SHORT OF OUTSTANDING. 30-34,000 HZ AT 7-1/2 IPS, AND 30-24,000 HZ AT 3-3/4 IPS. DETAILS SHOWN IN THE SPECIFICATIONS SECTION BELOW. RECORD BIAS AND EQ SWITCHES. AS TECHNOLOGY SKYROCKETED IN THE 60S AND 70S, TAPE MANUFACTURERS WERE DEVELOPING AND IMPROVING TAPE PERFORMANCE. THESE NEW TAPES BEING OFFERED WERE LOW NOISE/HIGH OUTPUT TAPES. BUT, THE IMPROVED PERFORMANCE WAS ONLY POSSIBLE BY CHANGING THE INTERNAL ELECTRONIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TAPE DECK. MANY TAPE DECK MANUFACTURERS SIMPLY DID NOT GO TO THE EXTRA EXPENSE TO REVISE THE INTERNAL PARTS OF THEIR DECKS TO MATCH THIS NEW PRODUCT BEING OFFERED. THE TEAC X-1000R HAS THE SPECIAL CIRCUITRY BUILT INTO IT, SO THAT YOU CAN ADJUST THE TAPE DECK TO CAPITALIZE ON THESE TAPE IMPROVEMENTS. THE PROPER CIRCUITRY IS SELECTED BY THE. EQ SWITCHES (SHOWN IN PHOTO #6 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS). EASY TWIST-LOCK REEL RETAINERS. ANOTHER NICE FEATURE OF THE X-1000R IS THE BUILT-IN TWIST-LOCK REEL RETAINERS. SIMPLY PLACE THE REELS ON THE SPINDLES, AND TWIST THE TIPS OF THE TWIST-LOCKS CLOCK-WISE TO LOCK THE REELS IN PLACE. THIS ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR KEEPING UP WITH THE WHEREABOUTS OF RUBBER REEL RETAINERS. ANOTHER FEATURE YOU WONT FIND ON EVERY DECK IS TAPE MONITOR SWITCHES (WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO MONITOR THE SOURCE AND THE TAPE AS RECORDING IS TAKING PLACE). TAPE MONITOR SWITCH SHOWN IN PHOTO #6 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS. TRUE TAPE MONITORING IS POSSIBLE WITH THE TEAC X-1000R. EXAMPLE, IF YOU HAVE YOUR HEADPHONES ON AND PLUGGED IN, AND YOU ARE LISTENING TO AND. RECORDING A FM SIGNAL, YOU CAN MONITOR NOT ONLY THE EXACT QUALITY OF THE FM SIGNAL AS IT COMES INTO THE TAP E RECORDER, BUT ALSO THE EXACT FM SOUND QUALITY THAT IS GOING ONTO THE TAPE. AS IT IS BEING RECORDED!!!! I USE A FM SIGNAL AS AN EXAMPLE OF A SOURCE IN THIS CASE. BUT ANY SOURCE CAN BE MONITORED ON THE TEAC. RECORD, CD, FM, OR EVEN ANOTHER TAPE RECORDER CAN BE A SOURCE COMING INTO THE TAPE DECK TO BE RECORDED AND. AS YOU ARE RECORDING, YOU CAN PRESS THE MONITOR SWITCH IN” OR “OUT, WITHOUT DISTURBING THE ACTUAL RECORDING PROCESS. WHEN YOU PRESS THE MONITOR SWITCH IN, YOU ARE THEN LISTING TO THE EXACT FM SIGNAL COMING INTO THE TAPE RECORDER. THE ADVANTAGE IS THAT YOU CAN EASILY COMPARE THE. THE SOURCE TO THE QUALITY OF THE TAPE RECORDING. AS IT IS BEING RECORDED. AND, IF YOU DESIRE, YOU CAN ADJUST THE RECORD LEVEL UP. OR DOWN WHILE RECORDING (IN AN EFFORT TO HAVE THE TAPE COME AS CLOSE TO THE SOUND QUALITY OF THE SOURCE SIGNAL AS POSSIBLE). FRONT PANEL HEADPHONE AND MICROPHONE JACK. SOME TAPE DECKS DON. T EVEN PROVIDE MICROPHONE JACKS FOR MAKING LIVE RECORDINGS, OR HEADPHONE JACKS FOR SILENT LISTENING OR. MONITORING PURPOSED DURING RECORDING. THE X-1000R NOT ONLY HAS BOTH, BUT ALSO PUTS THEM RIGHT UP FRONT ON THE FACE PLATE IN A HANDY POSITION, LOWER LEFT HAND CORNER OF THE DECK FOR THE MICS, LOWER RIGHT HAND CORNER FOR THE HEADPHONES. SEE PHOTO #4 TO SEE MIC JACKS, AND THE HEADPHONE JACK SHOWN IN PHOTO #6. UP-RIGHT OR HORIZONTAL OPERATION. THE TEAC X-1000R TAPE DECK IS DESIGNED TO OPERATE IN EITHER THE UP-RIGHT, VERTICAL POSITION, OR THE HORIZONTAL POSITION. TEAC PROVIDED FOUR FEET ON THE BACK OF THE TAPE DECK HOUSING, TO LIFT THE DECK OFF OF THE SURFACE, WHEN THE DECK IS RESTED IN A HORIZONTAL FASHION, TO ALLOW FOR PROPER VENTILATION. THE UP-RIGHT POSITION IS PREFERRED FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE MOST EFFICIENT VENTILATION. PITCH CONTROL IS A HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER FEATURE, WHICH IS NORMALLY ONLY FOUND IN MORE EXPENSIVE RECORDERS. LETS SAY YOU HAD AN OLD TAPE RECORDER, MANY YEARS AGO. AND FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER (MAYBE THE BELTS WERE A BIT WORN OR A LITTLE STRETCHED) AND THE RECORDINGS MADE ON IT TURNED OUT SOUNDING. JUST A LITTLE BIT SLOWER, WHEN PLAYED ON ANOTHER TAPE RECORDER. THOSE TAPES CAN EASILY BE ADJUSTED TO SOUND PERFECT, USING THE PITCH CONTROL. YOU SIMPLY TURN THE PITCH CONTROL KNOB UNTIL THE SOUND IS PERFECT. OR MAYBE YOU HAVE AN OLD TAPE THAT IS WOUND SO TIGHT THAT WHEN PLAYED, IT SOUNDS A BIT SLOW. MAYBE ITS A ½ MIL TAPE. THE PITCH CONTROL FEATURE WILL CORRECT THAT PROBLEM JUST BY TURNING THE PITCH CONTROL KNOB. PITCH CONTROL SHOWN IN PHOTO #4 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS. SUPERIOR TENSION ARM DESIGN. TENSION ARMS TAKE UP TAPE SLACK, STABILIZE TAPE MOVEMENT, AND STOP THE TAPE DECK IF THE TAPE BREAKS OR THE TAPE RUNS OUT. THE X10R TENSION ARM DESIGN IS SUPERIOR TO OTHER COMPETITIVE DESIGNS, BECAUSE THE X-1000R EMPLOYS SMOOTHED CHANNELED ROLLERS THAT GENTLY ROTATE ALONG WITH THE TAPE MOVEMENT, AND ADJUST TO THE TENSION THAT IS PLACED ON THE TAPE. THIS SUPERIOR DESIGN CONTRIBUTES GREATLY TO THE PRESERVATION AND PROTECTION OF YOUR TAPES. X-1000R TENSION ARMS IN ACTION IN PHOTO #1 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS. THE X-1000R INERTIA TAPE ROLLERS TURN WITH THE TAPE AND HELP TO STABILIZE TAPE BOUNCE FOR SMOOTH TAPE RUNNING; SIMPLY ANOTHER REFINEMENT TO THIS ALREADY SUPERIOR TAPE RECORDER. THE INERTIA ROLLERS SHOWN, IN ACTION, JUST TO THE INSIDE OF THE TENSION ARMS, IN PHOTO #1 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES OF THE X-1000R IS IT’S DUAL CAPSTAN CLOSED-LOOP SYSTEM. TO RECORD AND PLAY TAPES, THE TAPE MUST BE IN CONTACT WITH THE HEADS, OTHER WISE DROPOUTS AND IMPAIRED PERFORMANCE WILL OCCUR. THERE ARE THREE WAYS TO MAINTAIN THIS CONTACT. PRESSURE PADS, BACK TENSION, AND THE DUAL CAPSTAN CLOSED-LOOP SYSTEM. BUT THE PERFORMANCE IS GENERALLY CONSIDERED UNSATISFACTORY. BACK TENSION IS MORE COMPLEX IN DESIGN, BUT GIVES EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE. THE MOST SOPHISTICATED AND THE SUPERIOR DESIGN METHOD IS THE DUAL CAPSTAN CLOSED-LOOP SYSTEM. WITH THE DUAL CAPSTAN APPROACH, THE TAPE IS KEPT TAUT ACROSS THE HEADS BY HAVING TWO PINCH ROLLERS/CAPSTANS WHICH ROTATE AT VERY SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SPEEDS; THE CAPSTAN NEAR THE TAKE UP REEL ROTATES FASTER THAN THE ONE NEAR THE SUPPLY REEL. , THERE BY GIVING THE X-1000R A MUCH SUPERIOR SOUND PERFORMANCE THAN OTHER DECKS USING A DIFFERENT METHOD OF MAKING TAPE/HEAD CONTACT. (SEE THE DUAL CAPSTAN PINCH ROLLERS IN PHOTO #3 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS). THE AUTOMATIC TIMER FEATURE LETS YOU TURN ON THE RECORDER IN EITHER THE PLAY OR THE RECORD MODE, AT A SPECIFIC TIME. IN ORDER TO UTILIZE THIS FUNCTION, YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE A CLOCK CONTROLLED POWER SOURCE (SIMILAR TO AN AUTOMATIC WATERING DEVICE). A COMPLETE WALK THROUGH OF THE NECESSARY STEPS IS OUTLINED IN THE INCLUDED OWNERS MANUAL FOR THE X-1000R. (AUTO TIMER FEATURE SHOWN JUST ABOVE THE HEAD COVER, IN PHOTO #5 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS). ALL TEAC TAPE DECKS I SELL ARE TREATED LIKE THEY WERE EXPENSIVE GLASSWARE. IVE BEEN USING THESE CUSTOM STYROFOAM BRACES SINCE 2008.

IF THE TAPE DECK MALFUNCTIONS IN THE FIRST 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF RECEIPT (AND THE MALFUNCTION WAS NOT CAUSED BY ANY ABUSE OR MISUSE, DUE TO AN OPERATOR’S ERROR), THE RETURN MAY OCCUR FOR CORRECTION OF THE MALFUNCTION. CONSEQUENTLY, IT WOULD BE PRUDENT TO SAVE THE BOX AND THE BOXING MATERIALS, JUST IN CASE THE NEED FOR A RETURN FOR MALFUNCTION ARISES IN THE 30 DAY GUARANTEE PERIOD. IS OPEN ONLY TO BUYERS IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES (LOWER 48 STATES ONLY). SALE NOT OPENS TO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS. Currently, there are only a few states where this applies but more states will likely “jump on the bandwagon” as this becomes a popular source of state revenue. ONCE EXECUTED, THE SALE WILL BE FINAL. IN THE SEARCH BLOCK, JUST TYPE IN “REEL TAPE”. LAST TIME I TYPED IN “REEL TAPE”, THERE WERE OVER 12,280 SEPARATE LISTINGS!! AND THE LISTINGS INCLUDE 7″ REEL TAPES AS WELL AS 10.5″ REEL TAPES; THE SUPPLY IS EXTENSIVE!!! THERE ARE 7 BLANK TAPES AND PRE-RECORDED TAPES. AND YOU CAN OFTEN FIND BLANK TAPE THAT HAS NEVER BEEN USED AT ALL; STILL SEALED IN THE ORIGINAL CELLOPHANE RAPPER IN BOTH THE 7″ REEL SIZE, AS WELL AS THE 10.5″ REEL SIZE. GENERALLY SPEAKING, ABOUT THREE DAYS. WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS AFTER I RECEIVE MY TAPE RECORDER? MY BUSINESS CARD WILL BE INCLUDED WITH THE TAPE RECORDER. IS THIS TAPE RECORDER EASY TO OPERATE? IT IS VERY STRAIGHT FORWARD. IN THE SEARCH BLOCK, JUST TYPE IN “7” METAL REEL” (IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR 7″ METAL REELS), OR “10.5” METAL REEL” (IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR 10.5″ METAL REELS). HOW EASY IS IT TO MAKE A CD FROM A TAPE WITH THE RECORDER? HERE ARE THE BASIC STEPS. PLACE A PRE-RECORDED TAPE ON THE RECORDER AND THREAD IT UP TO THE TAKE-UP REEL (AS SHOWN IN THE OWNERS MANUAL WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THIS SALE). PATCH AN RCA PAIR OF CABLES (INCLUDED IN THIS SALE) FROM THE OUTPUT JACKS ON THE TEAC RECORDER TO THE INPUT JACKS OF ANY CD RECORDER. PLACE A BLANK CD IN THE CD RECORDER. PUT THE CD RECORDER INTO RECORD MODE BY PRESSING RECORD. PUT THE TEAC RECORDER INTO PLAY BY PRESSING THE PLAY BUTTON. IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO ADJUST THE RECORD VOLUME ON THE CD RECORDER, OR ADJUST THE OUTPUT LEVEL ON THE TEAC RECORDER BY TURNING A DIAL. BUT THAT IS JUST A VERY MINOR ADJUSTMENT. DO YOU HAVE OTHER TEAC RECORDERS THAT YOU WOULD SELL, THAT ARE NOT SHOWN IN THIS LISTING? I HAVE BOTH 7″ TEAC TAPE DECKS AS WELL AS 10.5″ TEAC TAPE DECKS MODELS 3300S, 3300SX, 3300SR, 2300S, 2300SR, 2300SX, 4300, 4300SX, 2300SD, 2340, 2340R, ETC.

Ampex 300 Reel To Reel Tape Machine, 2 Track Recorder
1954 Ampex 300 2 Track Tape Recorder. This Recorder has been in my collection for 25 years and is completely stock. It will need a complete restoration prior to being put into service. The metal is very clean and has always been stored in clean dry Southern California. When I obtained this 1954 Ampex 300, I was told that this system had been in service as a flight recorder on a Boeing 1954 B-52 Stratofortress Long Range Bomber, which was owned and operated by the United States Air Force. Please notice the head block metal covering, as it is different than regular commercial grade units of the same age. This covering is supposed to shield the tape from a Nuclear EMP Blast, which the B-52 carried in normal service. Plus, a xerox copy of the 1954 300 operational manual.
