Tascam 34B


Because of what we have learned about multi-channel recording systems in the past 15 years, Tascam decided to concentrate on improving functions in the 34B that are strictly the province of the tape recorder.

The result, a better and more flexible recorder/reproducer for the system of multi-track recording.

This logical growth now reflects the needs of the studio style or, if you will, the professional recordist.

A beautifully designed machine with superb transport and equally good audio quality from its state of the art tape heads and electronics. It is very good at 7.5ips, sensational at 15 ips - if you can find one of these serviced ie with new drive belt and pinch wheel for under £500 snap it up !
