Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

RE: How about a listing of the tape decks we've owned?

Wow, this might take some head scratching. My first deck was a Roberts (Akai) SS stereo deck, of which I do not recall the model (1055 maybe?). Got that when I was 15 or so. Since then, hmm, lessee,

Ampex 960
Ampex 1260
Ampex F44
Some SS Ampex that followed those tube consumer models, don't recall the model #
Uher 4200
early 60s AEG small tube mono, don't recall model#
ditto some slightly later small Telefunken consumer grade tube deck
Ampex 934
Nagra 4.2
Somewhere around six to ten RS1500/1520/1700s including a red J-corder
three or four, or maybe five various MX5050 types
Nagra T-audio, my current demo deck
Ampex ATR104, was 1/2" 4 track. Now running as a 1/4" 2 track slave at our duping salon and named Curly
Studer A80 1" 2 track, waiting for daddy to buy new heads

Then to expand beyond decks owned solely by me - at the studio we have three or four more 1/4" and 1/2" ATRs besides Curly (including Moe and Larry, our other full time slaves), a couple of 1" ATRs, an A80, an A820, an Otari MTR-20, a Tascam 32B and whatever else Paul has snuck into the storeroom this month.

That's all that comes to mind at the moment. I'm sure I've missed a few.
