Akai M-8 Reel to Reel Tape Recorder Accessories Microphones, 15 IPS Kit, Pinch Roller, Reel Caps, & More. We have dedicated numerous years to locating these items and have even added components that were not originally included in this extensive collection. The original Akai M-8 Accessory Kit includes. (2) Akai M-8 Dynamic Microphones, complete with their original factory-wound cord and plastic sleeves. These microphones are the most preserved M-8 units we have ever come across, and they are in nearly flawless mint condition. They have been protected for over 48 years! Although many of these microphones were produced, finding them completely brand new, untouched, and still encased in plastic is a sight even we had never seen before. Akai’s original 15 IPS Kit for the M-8 reel to reel machine. This brand new 15 IPS kit, never opened, contains everything necessary to convert your machine to its intended fastest speed. Elevate your machine to its highest possible level for playing back 15 IPS audio tapes. A pristine Akai Tape Splicer, accompanied by an unused tape cutting pad and the sharpest blades required for your initial splice. The pliability of the green foam is just as soft as it was when it left the factory almost 50 years ago. An original M-8 7.5 IPS pinch roller, equipped with a new high-traction rubber coating applied to the original metal core. Our specialists have removed the old rubber and given new life to this original pinch roller, ensuring a perfect fit and trouble-free performance for your exquisite machine for decades to come. (2) Brand new Akai rubber reel caps, meticulously sealed in their original factory bag with a cardboard label. Our team encountered significant challenges in sourcing these items, and we take pride in having them available for you. They are brand new and ready to hold their first set of reels. A brand new, unopened bottle of Akai’s tape cleaning oil. This special oil is used to lubricate the tape cleaning felts (which we have also included). These felts gently rub against the played tape, lubricating the magnetic tape while effectively removing debris, dirt, and other loosely connected contaminants. The application of this oil will help reduce “tape squeaking” and extend the lifespan of your audio tape. We recommend using only 3 drops on the felt every 60 hours of use. (5) Akai tape cleaning felts. Each felt can be rotated every few hours, or as desired by the user, to expose a clean edge for rubbing against your audio tape. Typically, each felt can be used for several days with lightly contaminated audio tape. Akai splicing tape, packaged in its original box. Additionally, we have included brand new splicing tape (in blue color) to enhance your splicing experience with a reliable adhesive, as opposed to tape that is nearly 50 years old. We offer a 30 day return on this accessory set in case it is not to your liking.
