Bell & Howell Reel-to-reel Tape Recorder
BELL & HOWELL REEL-TO-REEL
This Bell & Howell machine was taken out of a console stereo. Serial # E005819. I do not remember what brand the stereo was, it may have been a Packard Bell. This comes with the two microphones that were with it when I got it. I have tried this out and it does play tapes. I did not try to record. I assume it will record. This does not play tapes by itself. You must plug it into an amplifier or receiver. At first I thought it didn't work but I discovered that you have to have the selector switch in stop when you feed the tape past the heads. There is a small lever that is raised when the switch is in STOP that ends up on top of the tape. That lever is down in the other positions so it doesn't lay on the tape if you try to put the tape in with the selector not on STOP. This little lever seems to be for the brake. It senses the tape and puts the brake on when the tape rewinds off the take-up reel. You won't even know it's there as long as you make sure to have the selector in STOP when you put the tape in. Weighs 19 lbs before packaging. Sold AS-IS guaranteed not DOA.
