    You'll probably have better luck finding someone to do the transfer for you...than you will finding a place to rent a deck from.

    Just Google "audio tape transfer service"....or something like that.

    There might be a couple of guys here that have 1/2" 8-tracks that might do it for you.

    If you do find someone to rent a machine from, make sure the heads are in good condition and that the machine has had a recent repro alignment.

    Also, make sure that dbx noise reduction is included in the rental. If the tapes were recorded with it, then they will be unlistenable unless decoded during playback.

    Also consider my company Analog to digital tape transfers | Transfer analog reel tapes to digital to do the transfer for you. It might even work out cheaper than renting.

    David,

    Good to know. And you're in the LA area.
    I don't think you're allowed to pitch your services on the forum. But, you ARE allowed to put your website link in your signature block.

    I took note for possible future use.
    Why would you take my advice?? I don't even take my own advice.
