Tascam 34B 4-track

Tascam 34B VU Meters

I still had a tape with some recordings I did back in 1996 on a borrowed Tascam 34. So in order to listen to it again I needed a similar recorder. The 34B was currently available and I am an unhesitant type of guy…

I don't know where else to put it as space is limited and I don't use it that often so I guess it will be ok for a while. Getting a nice rack and rack ears for the deck would be great but it's kind of hard to obtain those ears and e.g. a nice Tascam console rack like the Tascam CS-607B.

Have a look at the photos I took of the head stock and actual tape path. I'm a little concerned about the wear on the tape lifters and tape guides.
