Description

Like
many of the smaller British manufacturers of the late 1950s – early 1960s,
the Elizabethan company utilised ready-made transport decks from other
companies, in this case the 3-motor, three-speed Collaro
Studio. Thus the cost of tooling up to produce their own decks were
eliminated .
Features of this recorder included: 3 micron
gap record head, VU level meter, 6 watt push-pull output, twin speakers,
independent input controls, mixing facilities, super-impose switch, accidental
erasure interlock and separate bass and treble controls.
Initially the Major was only available in half-track
mono configuration, but by 1961 a quarter-track version had been added
to the range.
