Description

The Ferrograph Super Seven addressed many of the problems, and shortcomings that had
blighted the original “Series 7″.
The move to the higher capacity 10½ ” NAB spool size was very
welcome, particularly for those recording at 15 ips. This move added a
further control to the panel. At the side of the variable wind knob is
a reel size selector, which adjusts the torque of the motor to suit the
heavier 10½ ” reels.
Mechanically, this model is the same the Series 7, albeit beefed up to
ensure correct and safe handling of the more professional spool size.
Metering was improved, at least in physical size if not performance.

Reviews

Interesting machine, different to any upright model I've ever used, looking forward to exploring it further. The tape load and lock is very unique, as is the way the 'fast wind' operates.
