    I was sitting in "The cave" putting my Tascam M520 back together and the drummer in my band brings home this find from goodwill.

    Lafayette Model Rk 600a

    I opened it up and there are Tubes in it. There is 12au7 and a few others.

    Anyone know anything about these machines?

    On the back it says Quality Control by "lafayette?" 2/1/1965

    Its in almost perfect condition on the outside and super clean on the inside.

    Im afraid to plug it in and push a button.

    I just measured the tape width and its 1/4 inch

    What is this machine??!!??!!

    Im going to try to get some pictures up.

    Lafayette was a "Radio Shack" type of operation. Consumer grade stuff at best. they were totally gone by the early 80's.
