In collecting our vintage recorders, we have attempted to include pieces that had a significant role in the development of audio recording.  Our focus is primarily on those analog reel to reel tape recorders that enabled musicians to hone their craft.  We felt it would be interesting to include some of the early cylinder, disk and wire units, however, our main collection reflects the recorders that first became available to musicians and "prosumers" in the late '40's, '50's, '60's, '70's and early '90's.  So many innovations assisted the musician to capture that unique sound.  They included, "sound with, and on sound," echo, and then came multi-tracking. 

Essential to the recordings were the microphones and mixers, so we've added some of those pieces as well.  For perspective, we added reel to reel pages in radio catalogs from the late '30's to the early '80's and included tape recorder and related ads as well.  Images on this site now number 10,000+!  We hope you enjoy our online information. It has not been our intent to add all recorder models to the collection, but to provide examples of the various brands and types of recorders. 

Please take a look at our "Unusual & Unique" page also. You'll see some of the audio and video units that were interesting benchmarks of production development.  It continues to evolve as we have time.  We move things around off and on, so you'll see duplication in some of the pictures.  Page one (1) will usually be the most current.   Enjoy!
