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 P18 power supply (1972) Quite rare

Never seen one of these before. The regulated power supply designed for the twin PP9 battery radio's (18.0 Volt total) with 80 MA capacity, is built to fit as per the PP9 and it has a battery box which you place the other connector into it for safety. To use it you would have to either leave the back off or cut a small hole to allow the mains cable to fit, though i would not recommend that. So its an interesting piece of Hacker history that was designed for the radios that had not offered external power supply connection. There must have been a requirement for customers needing such a unit and Hacker created the only thing to meet the requirements at the time

Hacker RP74 Black Night (1973)

The Black Knight is a VHF only version of the Sovereign III RP72 re-styled in a full black leather cloth with a alluminium tuning dial plate . The radio covers 88.0 to 101 Mhz. This serial number 04732 is an all original radio with only very slight wear and perfect battery holder. Hacker started the VHF only models originaly back in 1969 (RP37) and this concept of VHF must have been what the public wanted either due to budget ie no broadcast receiver costs or the VHF was the more popular by this time ,as this quality of re-production is where Hacker surpassed its competitors. The radio comes complete with 1 years gurantee and batteries

Hacker RP77 Sovereign IV 1978/9

This radio was produced in the last days of Hacker Radio Ltd. A few months after the RPC1 was introduced Hacker decided to offer this version using the case work of the cassette/radio rather than the costly re-design and build of a new cabinet. In my mind the high cost or RPC1 meant they had a large quantity of cases etc to use up and this met the requirements. This model is the last version as when introduced in 1977 hence RP77 the model was identified as a mark IV while later just Sovereign was used. The radio has the standard MW, LW and VHF and offer's VHF to 104 Mhz. By now Hacker had to find economies and this resulted in the cheaper AM/FM circuits compared to the past. All in all, a nice looking Hacker right near the end of the line for such a company. Overall condition is very good, with original aerial and only slight wear around volume control (see Photo's) The radio comes complete with mains lead only as battery housing was missing and 1 years warranty

Hacker RP17 Mini - Herald (1962/3)

The Hacker RP17 was first produced in 1962, and due to its small size fitted perfectly to the portable market, in fact this was the only radio that was fitted with PP7 batteries and within 2 years the A version replaced this with a slightly larger cabinet to allow the standard PP9's as fitted on there over models at the time. The radio is all original with no other parts replaced and the condition is very good, the handle is like new and the brass speaker grill is in excellent condition.

There is only some very dis-colouration on the dial plate, this is in fact due to the transfer often sticking to the chassis , a common issue with these early models, see photo's. The radio offeres Medium and Longwave reception with that standard loud Hacker sound. This is a perfect early 60's classic radio offered with PP3 rather than the PP7 fittings, for ease though i can provide the original battery terminals if requested, and has 1 years gurantee with batteries included.

Hacker Hunter RP38A 1970 Serial no 33286 SOLD

Came in just a couple of months ago another Hacker RP38A (HUNTER). This model is the revised styling from the RP38 with Teak sides for the first time but still using the earlier speaker grill. There were a few cosmetic changes with these models, the last being the revised speaker grill to match the Sovereign III, this lasted until 1976. One of the most popular of the Hacker series of radio's, it might be due to its slighter reduced size compared to the Sovereign , but still offering that Hacker punch from the elliptical 8" by 5" loud speaker when it comes to the audio quality. The revised model (A) offer's seperate bass and treble controls as the Sovereign

The radio is a very fine example, everything is all original including the aerial, the top dial plate is in first class condition and no wear to the front speaker grill which often has dents to it, there is just a slight mark to the bottom left edge, but thats it. Its the best example of the earlier Hunter I have seen in years. 

The radio has an additional circuit minimizing distortion at low battery voltages, and on this A model the facility for an external supply needed. The radio covers the Medium Wave and Long wave broadcast bands and VHF 87.5 - 101 Mhz. The radio comes complete with 2 PP9 batteries and 1 years gurantee for ease of mind.

Hacker RP18 (Sovereign ) late 1964 serial number 30657

A fine example of the first of the famous Sovereign's . The serial number being 30657 so this is a possibly late 64, the production ran for 3 years before the Mk2 version came onto the market. This model has not needed re-padding as it is very good with first class bright-wear . The internal hinge often rusty is perfect making this look like it was just a year or two old.

One thing I have always remarked on, when you hold a Hacker you know its something of quality apart from the nearly 10 Lb of weight you are carrying. The telescopic aerial is original and the audio amplifier has had some component changes and set up to Hackers original specification. The Af series transistors on the standard broadcast band oscilator and I.F's have been replaced with AF137's, the VHF I.F is perfect.This was Hackers first radio's to feature two seperate tuners one for AM reception and the other for VHF ; The FM reception is indeed very good with good sensitivity which was ensured by using 4 I.F stages. As with all the good Hackers this has the large elliptical speaker 8 inches by 5 inches with 1.2 watts audio output from the push-pull output stage.

The audio frequency response at the time was amazing 30 c/s - 20 kcs , in fact by today standards that is still first class.

The waveband coverage is as follows:

Medium Wave.....185 - 560    metres

Long Wave.........1000 - 1850 metres

VHF...................87 - 101 mhz

The VHF side was still in spec just as it left the factory and the broadcast bands only needed a slight adjustment just some 100 khz out from new.

Comes complete with 1 years gurantee and 2 PP9 batteries

This model is the revised styling from the RP38 with Teak sides and with the last style speaker grill. There were a few cosmetic changes with these models, this one has a different style tone control knobs. One of the most popular of the Hacker series of radio's, it might be due to its slighter reduced size compared to the Sovereign , but still offering that Hacker punch from the elliptical 8" by 5" loud speaker when it comes to the audio quality. The revised model (A) offer's seperate bass and treble controls as the Sovereign

This radio serial number 63299 is a fine example with only minor marking, the telescopic aerial has been replaced the top dial plate is in first class condition and no wear to the front speaker grill and all three feet are present.

The radio has an additional circuit minimizing distortion at low battery voltages, and on this A model the facility for an external supply needed. The radio covers the Medium Wave and Long wave broadcast bands and VHF 87.5 - 101 Mhz. The radio comes complete with 2 PP9 batteries and 1 years gurantee for ease of mind.

Hacker RP17A 1963/64

Hacker RP17A (1964/65)

The Hacker RP17A was first produced in 1964, and due to its small size fitted perfectly to the portable market, The RP17 was first fitted with PP7 batteries but within 2 years the A version replaced this with a slightly larger cabinet to allow the standard PP9's as fitted on there over models at the time. The radio serial number 77756 is in good condition, the handle is good with just some light wear and the chrome speaker grill is in perfect  condition as well.The radio has had all the AF series transistors replaced,, the audio output section has had a number of electrolitic capacitors re-fitted and the push/pull output stage has been replaced with new old stock transistors as it was out of specification

There is no dis-colouration on the dial plate, which often happens. The radio offeres Medium and Longwave reception with that standard loud Hacker sound. This is a perfect early 60's classic radio offered with 1 years gurantee and batteries included.

The RP72 Super Sovereign is a fine upgrade from the RP25 series, and is very reliable, requiring little or no servicing even after 40 years of service. As time goes by getting perfect examples are difficult. Its rather interesting that I now see Hackers selling more than their full retail value in some circumstances, on Ebay.

As the car salesman would say "one careful owner from new " in this case not a lady but a father of the family. Always a good indication and impressionon where its been used or stored is by the piano hinge , in this case very bright and clean. Also as stated the original extra plug is still taped to the telescopic aerial.

Hacker RP30 (1964/65)

The RP30 Herald is the re-designed version of the first Hacker's RP10 (1960). With its design closley resembling the Sovereign RP18 of the same year. The radio offer's Medium wave 185 - 560 metres and Long Wave 1,100 - 1, 900 metres switched from the top tuning dial plate. As standard now the speaker is a 8" by 5" elliptical and with the audio amplifier delivering 1.2 Watts with less than 1.0 % distortion , you still have that Hacker sound.

The radio is in very good condition, and with the blue case complimented with the white and chrome trim looks very smart.

The electronics have been fully overhauled with all works carried out on the oscillator and I.F sections as well as replacements and set up to the audio board.

Fully calibrated and guranteed for 1 year and comes complete with the two PP9 (9.0 volt) batterys

Hacker Herald RP10 (1961) dated with serial number 14667

The Herald RP10 in Royal red , with dark red knobs, this is one of the earliest sets in very good condition, with slight marking to the speaker grill only, the padding is first class and the handle again is near perfect. I had a previous model which was  identified and dated internally to 18 - 12 - 61 with serial number 17609 so this is earlier by a few months.

The electronics were so good, that all the components are original and have not been replaced, so everything is as it was when it left the factory including the early Ediswan transistors..

With of course the earlier reliable transistors rather than the later sets with the larger chassis and AF issues.

It works perfectly and has 2 wavebands Long Wave and Medium wave with a 3 switch tone control which works very well, infact the radio works brilliantly .

If you collect Hackers and you are looking for something fitting to the first period of this famous brand you will find it hard to get better than this model, comes complete with 1 years gurantee though with all Hackers, you should not need it and the 2 batteries.

Hacker RP35 Herald (1967)

The last of the Hearld series, this being the third, a very good example in blue with great colour on the white knobs and rear speaker grill. This also was the last time germanium transistors would be fitted all round, as Silicon was becoming the standard and it is possible that Hacker were just using stock up as after serial no 19001, it was all Silicon. This radio serial number 3662, is perhaps half way in the production run. The radio has had the oscillator transistor replaced  with the Hacker calibration as per the original specification. The radio offeres Medium and Long wave with the high quality Hacker sound. The radio is offered with 1 years gurantee and comes supplied with two PP9 batteries

Hacker RP31SW Herald (1964)

The rare RP31SW Herald in general apperance is similar to the standard RP30 and just like the first Sovereign has the chrome finsh. This radio has two additional transistors fitted and a telescopic aerial , the transistors are used as a mixer and a seperate local oscillator the resultant I.F then fed as standard to the rf circuit. These do not come up for sale often, so perfect for that Hacker collector still looking for one for their collection. This radio has been re-foamed by the original owner and with the clean  chrome knobs and fittings looks very smart. The original telescopic aerial is present and all the transistors have been replaced, and the audio output board supplying 1.2 Watts via the 8" by 5" elliptical loudspeaker has had all the electrolitic capacitors replaced. There has been a historic repair in the past due to a slight cut to the Rexin to the top right hand side body, but very slight apart from that it would be perfect. The radio offeres Medium wave (185 - 560 metres), Long wave (1,100 - 1,900) metres and Short wave reception  (16.5 - 50 metres). The telescopic aerial works ok for strong signals on the shortwave bands, but connecting an external aerial via the socket fitted, it comes to life and is very sensistive. Comes complete with one years gurantee and batteries supplied

Hacker RP10 Herald (1963)

It all started from here, The revised model of the RP10. Hacker first produced these portable radio's in 1960 and re-issued with 3 variants this being the 2nd version. This update was due to a completely different chassis with a single main circuit board and incorporating the AF series of transistors of which many technical papers have been written on. The radio switches between  Medium wave and long wave and interestingly a 3 range tone control switch rather than a variable tone control. And what was considered special features of the time were car aerial input socket (in the early 1960's car radio's were an expensive extra and the audio output socket for tape or amplifier input.

 

The cabinet colours were offered in either Red or in this case Desert Beige, this one serial number 43626  would indicate it was produced around  March/63 .

The quality of the audio is very good with very good selectivity and the overall condition is very clean, with only some slight marking on the gold surround. The handle in the past has either been repaired or just strenghtend  , often these look rather streched.The radio has been refoamed and looks and feels new. Fully guranteed for 1 year and comes complete with the 2 PP9 batteries required. A very good example of the early Hacker

This radio is in red , so i would assume even harder to find with good quality brass knobs with some wear to the handle bright work, the handle identifies this as the first of this series, though as far as i can tell the production run was only for a couple of years. The original telescopic aerial is present and the audio output board supplying 1.2 Watts via the 8" by 5" elliptical loudspeaker has had any capacitors requiring upgrading replaced. The radio offeres Medium wave (185 - 560 metres), Long wave (1,100 - 1,900) metres and Short wave reception  (16.5 - 50 metres). The telescopic aerial works ok for strong signals on the shortwave bands, but connecting an external aerial via the socket fitted, it comes to life and is very sensistive. Comes complete with one years gurantee and two PP9 batteries.

 

Note: Shortwave reception of course only comes into its own in the evenings and due to the limitation of the telescopic aerial will work well for strong broadcast stations, there is an external socket on the top dial plate, place a wire in there and the difference is amazing.

Hacker RP36 ( Helmsman) 1968 (SOLD)

Hacker RP36 serial number 25785 is a fine example of these radio's, this one is all original with no cosmetic alteration and the revised silicon I.F stages etc. The radio has been fully calibrated , though common with these radio's the Shortwave 1 band 12 - 30 Mhz is not accurate unlike all the other 4 wave bands, part of this is due to the logorithic tuning scale required to get the full wavelenght on this scale within limits. The battery compartment shows some slight staining from the past, but again overall impression is good. The speaker grill on these models, similar to the first Hunters often are found dented, this model has only very slight marking and indentations, but so slight the photo could not show them

At the time these did not sell in the same quantity as the popular Sovereign due to the same retail cost and the intended boat/yacht market in this country and Europe but alas not. It was expected to do well with worldwide sales due to the short wave ranges and because of this the batteries were replaced with the SP2 range rather than the popular PP9's as used on all the other models by then.

In some way i would have thought these must have been cheaper to produce because no FM tuner and FM I.F board the only design changes were on the switch select board with the 3 local oscilators .

To aid the sharp selectivity on the short wave bands the radio offeres a bandspread control where the bass would have been fitted.

The frequency range offered are Medium , Long wave and 3 short wave bands covering  1.6 Mhz to 30 Mhz .

The radio comes complete with batteries and 1 years gurantee

Hacker Herald RP10 (dated November 1962)

Another nice example of this range, with a interesting twist as the earlier models are identified by the rivets that can be seen as darker patches above and below the tuning dial. Serial number 28503 will help the Hacker Group, and if you do not know of them take a look, anything Hacker they are there to help, with a lot of knowledge.The chassis is the later one as identified by the hacker service manual from 20,0001, so we have a slightly later model fitted to the earlier case at the time. As with any radio that has been used and at just over 55 years old is bound to show some signs of wear, but the overall impression is good and the handle is nice.

Electronicaly this was produced with the AF series transistors for the first time and it seems that the early production runs were without issues, compared to later models fitted with these, as such the transistors are all original without problem, i prefer the simple pcb in the earlier models and wondered why such a change was introduced, it might be to move away from a seperate audio output stage, though this ended up being a classic Hacker design and the fact they had to be supplied with a very long on/off switch , volume control shaft.

This model has had some components replaced, and re-aligned the I.F, though it was very close, and works very well indeed on the two selected wavebands Longwave 1000 - 1850 metres and Medium wave 190 - 560 metres. With the to be standard 30 Ohm 8inch by 5 inch loud speaker it was an instant hit, and to fit in with the clients who could own there own car back then, there is fitted a aerial socket on the side behind the handle, (car radio's were very expensive).

It comes complete with 12 months gurantee and batteries, ready for you to enjoy

As with the Hearld its Medium and Long wave only. Its serial number  is quite low and in this condition the best i have seen. The dial plate very clean to good to replace , only thing is the aluminium tuning knobs around the white controls  are slightly tarnished due to age, but I have decided to leave it as it is, though the new owner colud make them bright again if required.

Hacker RP18 Sovereign (early model) serial number 8553 (1964) SOLD

A nice example of the first of the famous Sovereign's . The serial number being 8553 so this is a early example also idenified with the black pip on top of the telescopic aerial. This model has been re-padded at the front the chrome is very good with only slight marking to the on/off switch knob and the right hand side handle. The speaker grill is perfect and the  internal hinge often showing signs of rust is  perfect making this look very clean

One thing I have always remarked on, when you hold a Hacker you know its something of quality apart from the nearly 10 Lb of weight you are carrying. The Af series transistors on the standard broadcast band oscilator and I.F transistors on the  VHF I.F board had issues with the AF114 transistors, so i have replaced all of them. The front end first I.F transformer has been replaced  so now works perfectly. The audio out-put board is all original and only required current bias and mid voltage adjustment. This was Hackers first radio's to feature two seperate tuners one for AM reception and the other for VHF ; The FM reception is indeed very good with good sensitivity which was ensured by using 4 I.F stages. As with all the good Hackers this has the large elliptical speaker 8 inches by 5 inches with 1.2 watts audio output from the push-pull output stage.

The audio frequency response at the time was amazing 30 c/s - 20 kcs , in fact by today standards that is still first class.

The waveband coverage is as follows:

Medium Wave.....185 - 560    metres

Long Wave.........1000 - 1850 metres

VHF...................87 - 101 mhz

Comes complete with 1 years gurantee and 2 PP9 batteries

Hacker RP18 Sovereign (early model) serial number 8553 (1964) SOLD

£120.00 SOLD

A nice example of the first of the famous Sovereign's . The serial number being 8553 so this is a early example also idenified with the black pip on top of the telescopic aerial. This model has been re-padded at the front the chrome is very good with only slight marking to the on/off switch knob and the right hand side handle. The speaker grill is perfect and the  internal hinge often showing signs of rust is  perfect making this look very clean

One thing I have always remarked on, when you hold a Hacker you know its something of quality apart from the nearly 10 Lb of weight you are carrying. The Af series transistors on the standard broadcast band oscilator and I.F transistors on the  VHF I.F board had issues with the AF114 transistors, so i have replaced all of them. The front end first I.F transformer has been replaced  so now works perfectly. The audio out-put board is all original and only required current bias and mid voltage adjustment.
