Additional Details


Although this model bears
the Ferrograph badge, it was made by Ferrograph’s new owner, the Wayne
Kerr division.
Aimed at professional users, recording & TV studios, radio stations
etc, it was outside the price range of all but the most serious and well
heeled amateur.
A slight resemblance to the Logic Seven can be seen in the design of
the deck mechanism, but underneath the skin it’s a very different beast,
a serious piece of equipment.
The Studio 8 was available in a diverse number of configurations, twin
track, stereo or full track head blocks, VU meters or ppms, internal monitor
amplifiers, microphone inputs etc.
