Ampex 440b 8 Track Reel To Reel Recorder 1969

Sorry, this listing has ended.

Ended!


For sale is an extremely beautiful example of the Legendary Ampex 440b 8 track 1 inch recorder from the late 60s/early70s. The 8 track 440b is a direct descendant of the Les Paul 351 multi track recorder and responsible for recording the majority of albums made in the US throughout the late 60s and 1970s.
This 8 track makes the perfect alternative to owning a larger, more maintenance heavy machine and partners very nicely with the DAW of your choosing...allowing basic tracks to be cut to tape with a distinct sound before dumped into the digital domain.
This machine has been regularly serviced by Len Horowitz of History of Recorded Sound while in my possession for the last 6 years. Heads are in very nice condition, transport is working as it should and electrolytic capacitors have been replaced on the reproduce and bias cards as shown in the photos. It just needs a routine alignment and will be ready to cut records for years to come.
This 440b is in excellent original cosmetic shape and you would be hard pressed to find another that is even close to being in as good condition. Owners manual and full schematics are included in the sale as well as a 1 inch MRL tape. All original Ampex transformers (photographed) are intact and guaranteed to be functioning to spec.
I am open to shipping out of state and overseas. Please contact me to set up a shipping and crating quote.
As with with all vintage recording equipment, buyer understands the nature of what he/she is purchasing and assumes responsibility upon purchase.
Please feel free to ask any and all questions.

Final sale.
