The Fidelity Playmaster
Major recorder had been available in either half-track or four-track configuration
for several years. This was the transistorised version, new for 1965.
Utilising a single speed (3¾ ips) BSR deck with simple joystick
control, up to 5¾ -inch spools could be accommodated.
A tape position indicator was fitted to the four track model (4TR) and
available as an optional extra on the two track unit (2TR).
Additional images and a detailed period test report are available on
the Get Reel Vintage CD-ROM.
