mod / repair




picked up this beautiful tube amplified portable reel to reel recorder for $10. it didn’t play and many of the controls were frozen. i put in new input and output jacks, freed up all the stuck controls, cleaned the pots, added a custom kill switch for the input/microphone channel and came up with a simple solution for bypassing the erase head – i was able to revive the little unit and got it to play + record.
