My Sunday Craigslist score: Akai 1720W Reel to Reel
Calling all "Tapeheads" . . .
This fell into my lap off of craigslist this morning.
The original owner's father sent it to him in 1961 when he was in Taiwain.
One owner, Low miles, Sounds great; but I know NOTHING about R2R. I think this is a pretty basic unit, but will have some fun with it anyway.
First step; learning how to clean the tape heads (anhydrous alcohol and a Q-tip ???)
image below is from original owner's craigslist posting. I'll post better quality images soon.
