Reel to Reel Tape Machines / Studer A812 and 7" plastic reels
« on: August 03, 2009, 06:54:49 AM »
I'm having trouble playing my prerecorded two track tapes on my recently acquired Studer A812. As you would expect, the Studer is set up for NAB metal flanged reels. Unfortunately, this results in the tape rubbing the bottom flange of most of my plastic 7" prerecorded tape reels. Is there a way to adjust the reel table height to help avoid this? I have gone through the service manual several times, and haven't found any way to do this. My other ideas were either to transfer all my tapes to metal reels, or find some plastic reels with a thin enough flange to work correctly on my machine. The third option would be to use a separate machine for these tapes, but I'd rather not have to do that. What do you Studer experts do when playing your plastic reels?

Thanks for your help!

There are many great albums by Keith Jarrett that would be wonderful additions to the TP catalogue. The K?ln Concert would be absolutely wonderful. The fact that Keith is himself an audiophile might help make this happen.
