    Old audio catalog, just for fun

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hope you guys don't mind posting this but just found a old audio catalog with prices and just to have some fun, wanted to post this picture of a Soundcraft 24 track 2" tape machine with the price. Soundcraft/consoles, yes, Soundcraft/24 track? The top machine list's for $21,250 the second one, $11,999. This catalog ifs full "vintage" gear before it was...uh..vintage? It has some cool Tascam deck's (35-2B for $1,990 for example). Anybody want more?

    Man, I love those things! Yeah, more please but can you make it a tad larger? The print is a bit small.

    I actually would love to have that second 1" 8 track recorder. WOW!!

    I wish I had kept some of the old lit that I had over the years. I remember the Soundcraft multi-track machines quite well. They weren't common by any means, but they did get a few of them out there. The ones that I recall had very strange deck plates. It's almost like they were covered in a fine felt, which, of course wore off almost immediately, creating quite an ugly deck plate. Pentagon, the duplicator shown, was quite popular in that market. They were quite common for church applications. They, along with Telex, had the vast majority of the in shell duplicator market at the time. Telex, a fine Minnesota company, has certainly changed over the years. They made a series of broadcast reel to reels at one time. They have always made broadcast headphones, and eventually started producing wireless mic and intercom systems. They now own Klark Teknik, Midas, ElectroVoice, Blue Microphones, and many other brands. The only problem is that a couple of years ago Telex was acquired by Bosch.

    I love reading old catalogs and adverts. It's fun to think about how much I would have had to spend back then to build my current setup... my 34b cost $500 used in 2008, but it cost something like $2,000 when it was still being sold retail, right?

    Or, as I like to say to my friends, "I have a setup that would be drool-worthy in 1987!"

    I was fortunate enough to be privy to some info on the 34B cost when it was still available new, as late as a few years ago and it retailed for around $4000 Canadian + tax [that was like $3000 or so in USD]. Yeah, 500 ain't bad.

    Jerry, don't worry. It'll have to do. Maybe, next time, scan 1/2 or 1/3rd of a page to get it maxed out that way, so that a whole page consists of 2 or 3 attachments - more page per byte that way. Just my 2c. Thanks.
