Fostex R8 8 Track Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorder (excellent condition)
Fostex R8: 8 Track Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorder (excellent condition). Does not include tapes. I have two of these identical except the second one has a replacement pitch knob. I will courier it, although I prefer collection, I will also personally deliver or meet up within a reasonable distance of SW London/Surrey. The Fostex R8 is compact, the foldaway carrying handle increases the impression of portability. All the mechanical features you find on big tape machines are present here, like tensioners and flutter damping rollers to smooth the tape’s path. All components seem to be of sufficient chunkiness to survive reasonably vigorous home use. The head block – a vital component for long term stability – looks like the gun turret of some recently retired battleship. This is made of metal, and pretty solid it seems too. The panel has a short cable that attaches to a multipin connector in a recess, with enough space in the recess to roll up the cable and keep it hidden. When you want to use it as a remote, an extension cable is used with which you can operate the machine from a distance of up to five metres. With the control panel removed, four small transport control buttons are revealed, so there is still some local control if you need it (for editing perhaps).
