If you have tapes of sync'd film soundtracks, here is an opportunity to archive them. For sale is an
Ampex 350 TRANSPORT with EXTRA SYNC-RECOVERY HEAD mounted after the capstan. Also included is a
MagnaTech (MTE) Resolver unit that uses the sync frequency to sync capstan to picture. Also included
is the MTE electroncs for the sync head. The transport needs a new pinchroller but otherwise works
just fine and is in nice cosmetic condition.
Price is $150 and you either come pick it up or pay boxing and shipping from the local UPS Store.
For $50 extra, I'll throw in the full-track audio headblock. Otherwise, the $150 buys you transport
and MTE sync equipment only. All of this is rack-mountable. You will of course need an audio
electronics for the audio (non-sync signal) part of the program. The Ampex hi-z heads work with old
Ampex tube electronics or Inovonic or AutoTec replacement electronics.
Please ping off-list if interested. Serious inquiries only, please.
