    I have one of these reel to reel players, quite rare. However I want to service it, does anybody know how to service one of these? I am thinking about selling it too, does anybody know the guide price of these?

    sorry i can't help you but i had one of these brilliant machines years ago.with the cost of recording formats so low today i can't see you getting much for it,which is a shame.

    If you check on ebay you will see they tend to go for around £60 to £100 depending on the condition. I used to have one as well and while they were good machines they still lost a lot of bottom end on recording compared to original and the sound hardened up a lot. You will probably find they are not that rare either. They are the machine you will find on ebay most often
