Description

From the Radio Museum Rottenburg comes this early sixties
three speed, half- track mono recorder, very similar in appearance to the TK 23, TK40 and TK42U (which was a quarter-track version of the TK 41).
Maximum reel size was 7″ with the lid removed
but only 5¾” reels could be used with the lid on.
An all-valve machine, this recorder had an excellent
output stage, unlike a lot of other West German machines of the 60’s which had very poor or inadequate audio amplifiers.
The TK41 incorporated a well-designed 7 watt
push-pull output stage with  comprehensive bass and treble controls and an internal 6″ x 4″ elliptical speaker.
