Model 2 came hot on the heels of the first Ferry recorder – new features
included rewind and AC bias.
The “S” shape tape path was gone and
in its place, a neat curved tape slot.
This recorder was also full-track and 7½
ips but variable playing speed via tapered cone drive was provided.
Both the Model 1 and Model 2 sold in small numbers.
Thanks to ex-Ferry employee Neville A. Ellison for the above information
