Add a Tape Recorder to Your Phono (Feb, 1960)
I’d like to see the reverse. You could put two records on a tape deck and play in stereo!
Add a Tape Recorder to Your Phono
• With the Gramdeck you can turn your phono into a tape recorder—or back into a phono— within a few seconds. The Gramdeck just slips onto the turntable as easily as a record; the turntable drives the tape spools and the phono loudspeakers provide sound reproduction. A pre-amp/control unit which uses transistors and printed circuits and which is installed permanently on the phono in a few seconds, is part of the kit.
Standard tapes are used, and the erase-head clears them for re-use. The imported tape recorder with control unit and five-inch take-up reel is priced at $49.75. Complete with a moving coil microphone, the Gramdeck costs $62.25, according to the distributor, Andrew Merryfield of Canada Ltd., Import Div., 265 Adelaide St., W., Toronto 1, Canada.
