Additional Details


An impressively sturdy and simple looking machine capable of taking 10½ reels and having two speeds – 7½ and 3¾ ips, the semi-professional Concertone 1501 by Berlant was well-built and very heavy (60lbs or 27.3kg!).
Features included three over-size motors (a fast wind time of 2,500 feet in one minute) including a direct drive synchronous motor, and plug-in erase, record and playback heads which could be changed from single to
dual-track simply and quickly with only minor lateral adjustment required.

Additional Info

Rewind speed: 2,500 feet in one minute / Speaker(s): 8″ (optional) / Weight: 60lbs (27.3kg) / full or half-track mono (with interchangeable plug-in heads)
