Used / Vintage Recorders

 
Sure, weʼve visited studios where the analog tape machine is gathering dust or
holding a plant, but here at Sonic Circus we think thereʼs a much better use for
your trusty Studer or Otari vintage audio 24 track machine. Put that multitrack
back in service. Consider purchasing a used machine and using it to repair and
extend the working life of your analog audio recorder. Youʼll be able to offer your
clients digital and analog recording and grow your client base. Really. You
probably have some clients who have never recorded on tape!

Studer A827 Gold Edition 2” 24 Track Analog Recorder (Vintage)

Willi Studer Signature Series This is one of the final late 90’s last production run of 100 Studer A827’s. The Gold Editions commemorated founder Willi Studer.  His finely crafted Swiss multitrack machines changed the world of recording.  From the famous Tube 4 Track J37 used by the Beatles all the way up to the late 90’s, Studer never compromised quality and craftsmanship. The last run of A827’s were distinguishable by the signature nameplate, gold transport and black wooden trim.  The original list price was $58,000. All of the machines were hand made in Switzerland and this final run represented the end of the magnetic recording machine production era, and the inevitable take over of the digital recording boom.  Today young musicians and producers are learning.  The legacy of the most significant records that changed music history from the 50’s through the 90’s were all likely tracked and mixed with a console, tape recorder.

ampex_440_vintage_tape_machine_f_t.jpg

AMPEX 440 1/2 Inch 4 Track Vintage

Ampex Corporation introduced the AG-440 reel to reel studio mastering deck in 1967. The model AG-440 was in production into the mid 1970's. The machine is an all-discrete transistor design, with class A electronics. Mechanically, it was an upgrade from the long-lived 350-type transport. The AG-440 transport featured a rigid die-cast assembly that achieved tape stability equal to the larger "brute force" 300-type transport but kept the approximate form-factor and user interface of the popular 350-type. The tape path featured a scrape-flutter idler between the record and play heads, with facilities for a second idler on the other side of the record head. This Item has not been tested, will need cleaning and repair. For parts or project only.
