I'd love to restore your tapes/belts/discs/whatever...but wait.
First I MUST RESTORE THE MACHINE! My latest machine restoration
project is a group of Studer A80RCs...now that is a rewarding
project. I'm not so sure about the Executary machine. The recorder
circuit in these was very simple, apparently: a carbon mic in series
with a DC power supply and the head. Automatic DC bias, just like the
early Magnetophons and some of those infernal rim-drive tape-recorder-toys.
O joy unbounded!
