  • TEAC A-3440 4 Channel Reel to Reel Tape Recorder

    State of the Ark but in working order. An inherited item so our technical appreciation of this classic item is a little limited, however we have had it checked and tested by an engineer (but not serviced). Engineers report shown . 10 inch reels included. Unfortunately the tapes themselves are not usable so you'll have to source these elsewhere. If you're viewing this item you're likely to have the technical know how to get it back to perfection so no need to elaborate it's specifications for you. It does look great as a retro object too though. Heavy item which you'll need to check over in situ so this is for collection only. Happy bidding !!!!

    This recorder sounds AMAZING. All of the capacitors have been replaced, 90% of the transistors have been replaced, both reel motors have new bearings, all of the trim pots have been replaced. This DOES NOT affect the recording at all just the VU`s and it is very common on these its just the way the switches are mounted to the boards.

Vintage Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorders

Before tape cassettes and compact discs, reel-to-reel recorders were used by professionals and enthusiasts alike to record sound. The better reel-to-reel tape recorders ran tape at high speed which meant fewer drop-outs and less background noise and even today these machines are used by those who appreciate sound quality and want near perfect recording.

Buying Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorders

Vintage reel-to-reel tape recorders are older models which means that parts may be worn or nearing a breaking point. With no major manufacturer making reel-to-reel tape recorders today, spares are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. That said, there are some excellent vintage reel-to-reel tape recorders available at prices to meet the needs of collectors on even the most limited of budgets.

Tape and Parts

When choosing a reel-to-reel tape recorder, it pays to check whether tape is available for it. In addition, parts such as motor bearings, tape guides and rollers, pinch wheels, brakes and tape heads are basically consumables and will inevitably have to be sourced at some point. Some canny buyers purchase a working tape recorder along with an identical model sold for spares and repairs, with the obvious advantage of cost savings in the long run.

Don't Forget the Manual

Reel-to-reel tape recorders are complex machines requiring all kinds of calibrations, both electronic and mechanical. What's more, especially with professional reel-to-reel tape recorders, their use can be especially complicated. If the machine is unfamiliar it is highly recommended to insist it comes with its original manual, or that it has a manual that can be downloaded from the internet.

Other Considerations

Due to the age of some vintage reel-to-reel tape recorders, some modifications to the power system may need to be made in order for the machine to work. Additionally, a close inspection should always be undertaken to ensure there is no damage to the recording heads, wiring or other key parts.
