As if my burgeoning interest in vintage Tascam equipment with the M-520 and 388 Studio 8 wasn’t enough, I just bought a Tascam 244 4 track cassette portastudio! I got it at an estate sale. The capstan pinch roller was GOO, transport belt and capstan belts GOO, and the idler tires GOO. I have them all on order and have opened up the back, removed the transport unit for replacement of belts. Everything else, so far, seems to work great! Some cosmetic damage on the top but not bad. I’m looking forward to getting it up and running and playing with it for fun. I may sell it or I may just keep it in the collection as it kinda looks like a mini version of my 388. I’ll post pics as soon as I get back to my storage unit Or I start working on it.
