Vintage Aiwa Tp 32a Reel To Reel Tape Recorder, 1960s

CLICK HERE TO BUY!

 Up for auction is a vintage AIWA reel to reel tape recorder. Model number is TP-32A. Tape recorder is clean overall, even battery compartment has zero corrosion. Microphone in included. This also has a reel of tape on it and original AIWA take up reel. I have inserted two batteries in it and here is what it does. When forward is chosen, it will play, but at apparently the wrong speed as the tape sounds like the chipmunks. When the mic is plugged in and the recorder is set to record, I can't get it to do anything. The volume control seems to work fine and the reverse lever also works. This may be an easy fix or maybe a great item for parts. Carrying strap is missing, but overall the case is in excellent condition. The microphone has a few places on top and bottom where it appears the plastic has melted up against something, maybe stored in the attic. Anyway, I have way too many projects, so go ahead an bid and this can be your project.Thanks for Looking and Good Luck Bidding......
