Description

Thanks
to Steve Duckworth of ‘Vintage Tape’ in the UK has sent me another
interesting story, this time about his Ferguson 3204.
“… This model was released in 1964. It was the first tape recorder
that I owned, and, for saying it was aimed squarely at the home user,
was a surprisingly good machine.
