Additional Details


A small, portable, fully
transistorised recorder from Grundig, also sold as the ‘Niki’ in various
parts of the world, especially in Europe.
Maximum spool size was 3″ (76cm) and the “mean” playing
speed was 3¾ ips.
The Cub was driven by the pull of the take-up spool, so that the actual
speed at which the tape passed the recording head was continually increased
as more tape accumulated on the take-up spool. This was a problem only
when tapes were to be played on standard machines but no doubt many users
would feel it a considerable limitation).
