Dokorder 7140 4 track reel to reel
This is a Dokorder 7140 4 track I just picked up for $55. It works. The left front channel is intermitent but I'm pretty sure it's one of the pots or monitor switches. I found and bought a copy of the tech manual on ebay for $23 so I'll be able to troubleshoot a little better.
Here it is with the cover off for cleaning... it's in very good condition but it could do with a belt change and new brake bands.
...and here's the control panel.
I like it's sound. It's clean and bright but full of yummy analog warmth. This piece of gear would have been the ultimate to own when I was recording in high school in the mid 70's. :wink:
Any info in this unit from an experienced tape op would be much apprectited.
I also have the opportunity to buy a pair of White 4320 passive EQ's from this guy! I think I'll get them next week. He's in no hurry to sell... he also has a Prophet 12 for $1500 and a Korg ESS0-1 for $300. Analog equipment makes me drooll like a geek on glue ...
...if it grooves, record it!
