Ampex AG 600 portable analog tape recorder for restoration. From the late 1960s / early 1970s era. Presents nicely, needs allot of cleaning and will gleam with TLC and polish. Minor blemishes, and oxidation in places. As found from an engineer’s estate. Indicator light powers on — Meter bounced nicely when EQ switched and volume pots turned.. I could not get the transport running and it got very warm. Fuse is OK.. Might be me, a dirty switch or maybe a motor starting cap. Needs cleaning and surely some adjustments and repairs to be in running condition. No other functions were inspected or tested. Includes only the extras shown in photo. Nice power cord, and what appears to be an low use or NOS 311 reel that is nearly full. This was the first solid-state product carrying forward the build quality of the old tube 600 machines.. Machines like these Ampex AG 600 and 600/601 tube series before allowed studio quality analog records to be made in the field— countless famous live recordings have been made with these. These days with digital — it’s amazing what you can do with a single, mono analog track. This might be just what you need for effects or analog presence in your next audio project. If you are looking for a good summer/fall project for either high quality preamp / tape playback or setting up a preamp or tape track in your home studio. This is a terrific score. The sound will be well worth the TLC you provide. Will be packed in strong, outer box with padding.
