Finally a Tascam BR-20 for me
« on: October 26, 2012, 07:02:02 PM »
After 3 decades of 4-track machines, I finally have a great 2-track. My buddy brought over some of his Tape Project tapes and I must say simply incredible.

Anytime Jesse, just call or message me to make sure I'm home. You don't have to wait for one of my meets or when others are over. You're always welcomed and you have to hear Waltz for Debby. It is a classic for a reason and the Tape Project tape is sublime. Close your eyes and you're at the Village Vanguard.

Optical illusion. You're looking at albums behind the rack through the opening below the deck and the bottom rack handle.

By the way, I want to highly recommend Terry Witt pinch rollers. His turn around was quick, his workmanship impeccable and his price half of a factory original. The man has mad skills.

Just looking at the funky shaped holes in take up reel, I can't tell the tape being played to save by butt either...

I think that Doc was referring to the 2" tall bright orange TASCAM label

subtle nameplate
