    TSR* Pinch Roller Cost

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I've got a line on a nice TSR-8, but the guy says its got a sticky pinch roller. He may discount the machine by the cost of a replacement, sooooo....

    What do they cost? On EBAY they are like $65 which probably is robbery.
    Without me calling Tascam, anybody got a budgetary price?

    Thx

    I think that's about what I paid, but it was a while ago.

    Yeah, that's about right. I bought a couple last year and it was around that cost. I got it straight from TEAC Canada. It does pay to buy straight from TASCAM as they're usually cheaper than the thieves on eBay.

    Terry's RR wants $75 for a TSR8 roller.

    Looks like it not a cheap fix

    Yeah, Tacam replied back that yhey are $36 shipped, but are on backorder. Does anyone have any experience if that means they may actually get some or if the backorder will turn into never??

    And why would anyone buy these from Terrys if they are half the price at Tascam??

    Although I cannot verify, the word is that Terry uses better quality chemicals for the rubber and the end product is superior, although, again, I can't verify.

    I personally think that there's nothing wrong with what TASCAM sells and I would always opt to buy from them first, unless they didn't have it on hand.

    Unfortunately people often assume things and never bother to check with TASCAM, end up spending more than they should.

    Yeah, I too would like to know what "back-order" really means. They seem to have been "back-ordered" since last year.
