Thanks Rick! :)The Beatles used this a lot I've read on google. Just need some 7" reels and I'll get a better idea on how well she functions. Guy who I got it from said he's played tapes on her and audio worked...but it might need a service. ;)

I had started to collect vintage equipment but as time went on I had no room for all of it and had to let it go.:( But it is nice to see someone out there still keeps the older vintage stuff alive. Its the roots to all the great music we have come to love.

Yeah! Thanks Rick :) I once read Les Paul himself spent many an hour mucking about on these Old tape machines. I understand they are great for echo and loop effects, but I see Slash and Metallica use Analog Tape a lot!...that was my initial reason for buying this piece of kit. Will be interesting once it's hooked up to my current system just to see what is possible with this studio addition! :)
