Additional Details

Description

In 1968 Tandberg updated the ageing Series 12 so as to incorporate the new crossfield bias system. The new model had the designation 1200X.
Available in either half-track
or quarter-track configurations the 1200X resembled its predecessor very closely. Apart from the crossfield head the only other outwardly obvious change was a double VU meter with indirect illumination
replacing the Model 12’s EAM 86 magic eyes.
Three speeds were provided, 7½ , 3¾ ,
and 1 ips and there was a four-digit revolution
counter (also indirectly illuminated).
