Additional Details


This oddity is the only other ‘single spool’ recorder I have come across other than the mysterious Countess/Timbra. Single spool in appearance only, that is. In fact there were two spools, one on top feeding an internal (hidden) take-up reel.
The Multicorder was produced by Norwegian company Radionette and was a two-speed, quarter- track recorder with a maximum spool size of 5″ and both battery and mains operation.
Fully solid state (8 transistors and 5 diodes) the Multicorder boasted a 1.3 watt output, frequency response up to 10 kHz and instantaneous selection of all four tracks without changing the tape.
Priced at £39 18s when new and distributed by Denham & Morley Ltd, this novel recorder only had limited success in the UK.
