Hello,

The Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage has an upcoming archival audio preservation project in the country Georgia (Sakartvelo) and is seeking recommendations for 1/4” open reel tape machines natively operable on 220V/50Hz AC. In addition, we are seeking sources for a refurbished machine suitable for preservation work meeting the following specifications:

  *   Capable of handling fragile acetate-backed 1/4” open reel audio tape
  *   Has a minimum of three playback speeds: 3.75 ips, 7.5 ips, 15 ips  (38.1 cm/s, 19.05 cm/s, 9.525 cm/s)
  *   Has quarter-track stereo and half-track stereo (NAB or DIN) heads
  *   Operates on 220V/50Hz power without the use of step-up transformers; switchable is okay
  *   Capable of handling reel sizes up to 10.5” (NAB or AEG DIN)
  *   Optional: switchable NAB/CCIR (IEC) EQ

If you have any information, questions, or potential sources for professional machines meeting these requirements, feel free to direct responses to me off-list at [log in to unmask] Thank you for your time!

Regards,

Dave
