Re: field recorders
Hi All !
Yes, the Uher Report series is a cheaper reel-to-reel alternative to
Nagra and Stellavox . Still good tho :) .
There's the mono 2track 4000, the stereo 2track 4200 and the stereo
4track 4400 . Mind, late models are 3head, earlier ones 2head .
4 speed, 19cm/s max . 13cm spools . Pretty solid stuff . I've had a
s/h 4000 for 30 years now, and it still runs . Head is shot tho :)
5-6 yrs ago i got a s/h 4200 3head . Mainly to listen to those old
tapes ;^) . Nicad and lead accus used to be available . Takes c
cells . And gets through them quite quickly too . Those
rechargeable alcalines might be an idea here .
Special pilot-tone models also produced, as with Nagra and Stellavox .
Uher also made some pretty decent portable cassette recorders, as did
Marantz and Sony . The reel-to-reel's are better :)
Keep 'em oscillating :)
