Additional Details


This was the final model in the 36 series that had begun in 1954 with the A series and culminated with the superlative A-77 in 1967.
Interestingly, Revox continued on with an all-tube circuit (with the exception of 3 diodes and 3 selenium rectifiers) after dabbling with a solid-state front end on the E-36. (the F-36 was also all-tube). Other differences between the G36 and its predecessors were the fitting of twin VU meters instead of magic eyes and the introduction of a tape-tension switch for when 7″ reels were employed.  The G 36 has a Papst Hysteresis Synchronous capstan motor with electromechanical braking for smooth transitions through the functions with smaller Papst reel motors.

Available in either half or quarter-track stereo, the G36 was a formidable machine that found use not only as a high-end domestic recorder but also as a studio and broadcast workhorse. 736 is a designated UK model
