  2. Filed under "restoring a friend's old Korean War era Navy Band recitals." According to the American Chemical Society, reel to reel tape is prone to degradation, which has been a topic of active research for many years. It's well known that applying heat can often reverse the damage sufficiently to enable playback, usually by baking the tapes in an oven. Now scientists at the US Library of Congress have determined precisely why this method seems to work, presenting their findings earlier this month on the American Chemical Society's SciMeetings online platform. The primary culprit for the degr
  3. I'm about to tear a Nagra III apart to replace a failed motor (broken commutator). I wonder if anyone here has attempted such a replacement, and would be interested to know how that turned out. I know that the Nagra III Service manual has dire warnings about disconnecting the motor shaft from the encoder wheel. No doubt Kudelski's ghost will haunt me, but I cannot see that this would be impossible. I will of course be replacing belts and clutch felts as well, but the motor encoder system is my current main concern.
  4. I have a Nagra IV-S machine which I used to transfer quite a few 2 track tapes to digital. However, the utility of the machine as a transfer and home audio deck would be magnified a thousand fold if I was able to play 1/4 track tapes on it, of which I have A LOT, as well as 2 track. As a safe transport for old delicate tapes it has no equal. I was thinking that maybe a 1/4 playback head could be installed where the pilotone head is, and could be switched in and out of the playback amp. Has anyone ever heard of such a conversion? Has anyone here ever converted a Nagra into a 1/4 track machin

  6. I've got a Stellavox AMI-48 up for grab in mint condition. Tested and working and knobs been fixed so no crackling when turning them. All lights work and its been used by my dads friend 6 si gle times in its lifetime. Its been shelved for decades until i found it and got it from him for free. I have only started it and tested it and only improvement i did was leaving it at a vintage synth repairmsn who cleaned it overall and also inside so the knobs nolonger makes the crackling sound. Even the plastic cover which is original is almost mint condition. Anyone in here intrested? (Better sell it t
  7. I have a film coming up and production wants to record on film and tape. I intend on using my analog mixer, take the direct outs and record the ISOs into my 788T, and send the mix to the Nagra, and back into the 788T. The idea being that everything is already there, even though the tape mix will have a delay, it'll have the slate, and the actual tape would have TC on it. I guess my question is this: should I record everything at 24fps, 23.976, or something funky like 48048? I know that normally we would ask post, however post has not been lined up yet, and likely will
  8. I came across this item and I can't find out any information about it. The barrel slides open and allows you to put in (6) 1.5 volt button batteries in. If it is a inline mic power supply, will it take the place of other power supplies. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I was unable to upload any pictures
  9. Hi all, I was attempting to do a health checkup on a friend's Nagra 4.2 and before I could even run an MRL tape to check response and azimuth I noticed that the tension was acting very strange. The tension rollers for both the supply and take-up sides are bouncing up and down adding a horrible wow to playback. The motor mode on the meter shows the current wildly fluctuating in time with the rollers if that gives any clues. The issue seems to eventually go away while running at 15ips but persists at 7.5 and 3.75ips. The tape stock isn't sticky and the tape path is very clean. The machine had be

  15. A provisional operating manual for the Nagra EMP preamp fell into my hands so I thought I would post what I learned. I haven’t yet played with the device itself but I could borrow an example if anyone is interested to know more. (I have worked with essentially the same preamps on a Nagra VI so I’m generally familiar with the source.) Briefly, it is a two-channel preamp, with built-in recording capability, designed as a stand-alone device or as a companion to the Nagra VI recorder. When used with the Nagra recorder, it draws its power from that source. As a stand-alone it can be powered eit
