    I have to admit that moving from the A8 to the TSR-8 was a massive step upwards. Whatever you decide to do, good luck with it!

    Pictures of the state of the heads and guides before and after running a tape that sheds. More details of the tape type you are using and the date code of it. A video of the tape running through the machine and a close-up video of it running across the heads. This is all the sort of thing that a tech would look at when first diagnosing problems with the machine and tape. I don't have much experience of the R8 but I know that Fostex are perfectly capable of building good machines as I used an E8 and E16 in a commercial studio back in the 80's and 90's.

    I had the same shedding issue when I ran an R8. I suspected the cheap plastic guides being the cause of my problem back then. Is it worse around that area? In that case see if you can find some on Ebay or it might be possible to make some with a 3D printer?
