    What type grease for tape deck?

    In any event, I think it's cool you got your sights on getting your deck up-to-snuff and into the 'mix' Brad.

    What type grease for tape deck?

    Cassette decks locking up due to lube issues is super rare... especially ones that haven't been used much at all or that have been stored properly. A lot of decks have passed through my hands and lube issues have never been a problem, even on the rattiest of the bunch. High speed R2R decks are...

    What type grease for tape deck?

    Guys over on TH are recommending this... as it is safe for rubber and plastic. Again, friction points in/at the lift/drop points in the mechanics are probably all you need to worry about in a cassette deck and only if there is some obvious binding going on. The load points and forces in a...

    What type grease for tape deck?

    Here's the service manual and the addendum in case you didn't already have them. They make no reference to lubrication types or locations but you may be able to ferret that out from forum sites. Sometimes it's just as easy to apply a light lubricating oil to areas where grease was dried up -...

    The Back to the Future Project ...

    Whenever the the time is right Nando. I foresee this thing being a long term Project (open ended like I said...), where different folks hook up and do the swaps when it fits in. I personally have a lot of catalog from the 70's to draw from and like you, my tastes in music have also broaden big...

    The Back to the Future Project ...

    The thing is, decent cassette decks can be had with just a little amount of effort and frequently with very little coin spent. Thrift stores usually always have some sitting on a shelf somewhere... for next to nothing.

    The Back to the Future Project ...

    I won't speak for anyone else, but I'm into ALL kinds of music - no matter the 'vintage'. So get some gear and join the 'Project'. I'd love to hear some Hanky Panky. We aren't using Dolby so any working deck is good enough to participate. A Pioneer CT-F700 is no slouch. I guess the easiest...

    The Back to the Future Project ...

    Mike (mkuhl2000) and I are kicking off 2019 with a tape exchange. This is an open-invite project that can vary between participants. So I thought it fitting to make a dedicated thread for future collaborations. Each exchange is destined to be different since there is so much to cull into the...

    Relative Humidity. Believe it or not, it can effect microphone diaphragms and the workings of the human ear.

    Interesting Distortion Discussion By Nelson Pass....

    That's pretty cool Lee. But I guess not much of surprise considering the stature & the lineage of the pre-amp, and that it's probably commonly used married to tube amps.

    Lee... the master CD in the 'case' (Sonic Mayhem) has this track listing: Remember, this stuff creates a 'wall of sound'. Play it with a little bass boost for added impact, but keep the overall gain level down for the 1st go-through. ; )

    what are you listening to?

    These Windham Hill chrome tapes sound amazing with Dolby off... I suppose it helps that my DSP pre-amp has a domain expander and that these tapes were recorded with HX Pro.

    Interesting Distortion Discussion By Nelson Pass....

    I enjoy reading through these distortion 'white papers'. There's always good takeaways from the individual perspective and good theories to ponder. The problem is, I see very little presented in terms of human trials (blind tests) and/or controlled microphone tests to substantiate the...
