Description

For the Series 5, Ferrograph enhanced the specifications of their tried and tested (and by now almost 15 year old) design.
Cosmetically, not much had changed from the Series 2, 3 & 4 except
for the knobs and VU meter, but a new capstan/flywheel assembly gave improved
wow & flutter figures of less than 0.16% at 7½ ips (0.2% for the series 4).  This was achieved by by reducing the capstan diameter so that a heavier flywheel now ran at twice the speed.
The frequency responses at both 7½ & 3¾ ips were also
extended, giving 40 – 15kHz & 40 -10kHz respectively.
