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.
We service, repair and restore all Hacker radio models. From the first model RP10 Herald (1960) through to the last production model RP85 Kight (1979)
We have a large range of spares including front grills, handels and are sourcing the replacement telescopic aerials which have been a problem due to their larger diameter size, compared to modern units.
All service manuals are availble and a comprehensive component store for the transistors etc. There are certain rigs built to allow easier and faster servicing, helps some of our trade clients who wish to send us just the faulty board , rather than the whole radio.
When we have the time we are creating a large collection of restored Hacker radio's for purchase.
