RCA RT21b Tape Recorder

Logo Ottawa copy

This is a wonderful solid-state machine with a really cool transport. It has a cue function that allows you to scrub forwards or backwards at any speed.

Other than recapping, replacing some transistors, and battling with the relays, I modified the record EQ so that it is compatible with modern tape.

    I have one of these without trolley (rack mounted) and have been trying to find a good home for it. It still works fine.
