Need to rent a reel to reel.
« on: June 08, 2017, 07:04:43 PM »
Hi all.

I have been asked to digitise some master tapes and I only have a non pro RTR machine.

The specs given are 10 inch reels 2 track  at 15 IPS.

I have all the recording gear to do the digitising, but not the RTR for playback.

Does anyone in Gauteng have a machine that I could rent for a day, or if you are not prepared to let it out, then could I bring my portable recorder, cables etc to you ?

I am obviously prepared to pay for the machine use.

Thanks.
Tony

Did a test run last night, and all seems good. The supplied tape had an Interesting ad on sheep medicine with the VO artist going BAAAAAAAAAH in Afrikaans !!. :BWAHAHAH:
