Quality Vintage Tandberg 74B Stereo Tube Reel to Reel player/recorder, all vintage tubes, 4 track, teak cabinet and vinyl carrying case. It has the incomparable vintage Tandberg design, craftsmanship, attention to detail, fit, finish and potential for excellent performance. It was quality made and designed in Norway, 1960s. These early Tandbergs are known for their exceptional performance, sound quality, musicality and naturalness. It is complete and very nice cosmetically, a few very small scuffs, see pictures. It powers on, will fast forward, but will not play. It has never been serviced and will need the typical and necessary restoration involving lubrication and possible drive belt replacements. The belts are available. These vintage Tandberg reels were used by the most discriminating audiophile, musicians and recording studios. The shipping cost includes safe packing, insurance, prompt shipping and tracking number. Buy with confidence, see my feedback. Good listening, SonnY :)
