Additional Details


From Denmark comes this retro stylish semi-professional recorder. It was first made around about 1961 (it is listed in the 1961 UK Tape Recorder Yearbook) and from the accompanying 1965 Danish advertisement we know that it has a Papst motor and a frequency response of better than 20Hz – 16Hz (2db).
It takes 7″ reels and runs at 3¾ and 7½ ips. It appears to have four (or three depending on how you
count) heads. If you take a close look at the picture with the head cover off you’ll see that two brownish heads are placed next to the left tape guide. The left seems to be a little lower than the right.
