Reel To reel tape machines
Reel to Reel recorders like vinyl in records are here to stay.
The period tape machines like Ferrograph were hand built to last and were built in the UK, just like the classic radio's of the same period use off the shelf components . With that classic valve sound and mechanical design whats not to like. Every instutution had them BBC, schools, armed forces and if you were lucky the private owner to .With the correct servicing some 50 years later they are as good as the day they left the factory
Retro with Classic designs are now very popular. There are a number of client's who collect from a certain decade, this can be for personal interest or as props in television or film, through to interior design. At times we are asked to supply good looking models but are not fully functional. If there is a particular period radio you require please contact me to your specific needs so we c
an do the hard work for you.
Hacker covering material is now available in four different colours
You can now finish your radio using the same material and colour , perfect for handles etc. Of course you need to remind yourself that you are dealing with materials that are decades old and therefore will be slightly different in tone compared to new of the shelf replacements. That aside the only really noticible colour change is in the white as the old models due to exposure to light have turned to a cream . For handles Black, Blue and Red are really good.
If you are changing the whole unit then this is not so important of course.
This material is getting harder to find and there is a limited amount of material available out there. Made from Vinide and perfect pattern match to Hackers.
Size cut to 20inches in height by approx 40 inches in Lenght
Perhaps the harder of the colours to match due to light over time will dull the white towards a cream. This is in Vinide and would allow a very good way to create a new Hacker in white. The pattern is perfect but due to its reflective qualitys was hard to photograph.
