Wollensak 1980 Portable Reel To Reel Tape Player Recorder W/ Mics, Works Nicely:
This is a Wollensak reel to reel tape player, model 1980. It uses tubes in the two separate amplifiers. It's a very versatile unit that seems designedas muchfor professional useas for the discerningaudiophile. I'm not too familiar with these players, but most everything seems to work properly on this one, even the light above the control panel. It records and plays track A,B, or 2 Track. I tested it quite a bit and found it recorded left, right, or bothchannels well ontrack A or B, but for some reason I couldn't get sound to from the left speaker after recording on 2 track. The only tape I had to test it was blank, so I'm not sure if there is a problem with recording or playing on two track. It's also possible that I'm not doing something quite right, since there are quite a few controls on this unit, some of which aren't entirely intuitive. Luckily, the original manual is included. It does have some static and popping in the sound, but I'm not sure how much of that is standard in these tube players. This unit doessome really cool stuff like recording sound input from another player on one channel while recording anything else on the other, such as singing or playingalong with a prerecorded track and recording them together. The manual covers all of these functions in depth. It comes with an empty reel, two mics (both have some light tape residue or something on them, see pictures), a Y adapter, and the manual. The case has a few scuffs and blemishes on it, but is in overall great shape. It latches together smoothly and except for being on the heavy side is very sturdy and portable.Itis a sturdy and well built unitno doubt designed for years of service.
