The TK 120 was a budget, single speed (3¾ ips), half-track mono recorder with a single two-pole
motor, two heads and a 5¾ inch maximum reel size.
All the trimmings were paired down for this recorder, ‘simplicity’ being the emphasis in an effort to produce a ‘good quality’ recorder with a low price tag.
A single mode selector was employed with a record safety interlock.
