    In praise of Tascam's cassette multitracks

    I just did a gig last Sat. that at the time I percieved we totally sucked,and I don't doubt to some/alot of people we probably did.We had all sorts of sound system problems,the audience was less than thrilled with our type of music and so on. All the ingrediants for a "bad head" during the...

    How about the tascam 234?

    As a vintage tascam anolog junky, I'm also the winning bidder for a low use 234.I added this to my collection for these reasons. When I play live,and if the sound man is not harried,I'll only use my 238 if the sound man has the band miked and I can get individual tracks to the deck.The porta 1...
