Tried doing a search on anyone making real to reel recorders. I use to have a Teac 3340 four track that used 1/4 inch tape. Pretty nifty for the time around 1975.

There is a current thread on the gearslutz forum about new tape machines. Seems a good refurb is mostly what is available according to that thread.

Some interesting info on refurbished reel to real recorders. Seems like the technicians capable of working on these recorders are scarce and a dying breed in this digital age. The resurgence of tape interest may bring a new market for reel to reel recorders.

I purchased one about 8 months ago, used, AND thru Paypal.
Turns out it was never delivered, the guy was sure he had it in his truck. After several weeks I finally got my money back from Paypal.

I used to have one of those Simul-synch jobby Teacs.

Tape is still being used for mastering houses and record companies still submitting masters on tape.

There are some serious tape techs out there and tape is still available.


Jeff Jacobs from J-Corder hops up Technics recorders.




This is about $1400.


I like Revox for a two track.




But the Ampex Atr series are the more pro.

I think they're still using Ampex Atr's and the like over at Ludwig's mastering facility for masters refurbed by Mike Spitz (dec) of Atr services.





Ampex Atr-102 mastering mixdown 2-track 1/4 inch tape.

Some producers have used the recorder's electronics to run a mix through just to get that vintage sound without running tape through the transports.

Neve makes a device that is supposed to mimmick tape sound.
