The discs have arrived safely - and I am hugely impressed
with the quality, presentaion and sheer volume of information. A real
enthusiast's gold mine! Thanks,
AMAZING! What a great job you have done in compiling this
data! I will return!
My Get Reel vintage CD has arrived safely.
I was pleased to see all the period articles – and the manufacturer profiles too.
Recently, I had opportunity to visit a vintage radio auction – £40 secured me a fully operational Series Five (Ferrograph).. My resolve had been weakened by browsing all the Ferrographs on the Get Reel CD.
It could have been much worse – there was an immaculate Brennell Mk5M for sale as well, that I did manage to leave behind. Returning home, I read the review of it on the CD, and wished I'd bought it too!
Such is the power of your work – I think I'd
better start looking for a bigger house...
I just wanted to write and say that I love how you've
put together the CD collection on tape recorders, it has become a faithful
quick link on my computer for checking up on circuits and other information.

I received the Tandberg CD-ROM today and it is much than I had hoped for. I was looking for a circuit diagram to resurrect my 40 year old 64X, but a complete service manual---Wow!!! Thanks for the great job of compiling this information. Your other customers might be interested to know that Russell Industries in New York can repair pinch rollers and other rubber parts for these machines.
Thank you very much!

Your CD-ROM compendiums are most impressive...WOW!!! They
are very professionally done, stuffed to the
I love my Get Reel CD!
The definitive guide to all things reel-to-reel. A network
of experts, enthusiasts and correspondents around the world ensure that
the information is always accurate and up-to-date. If the information
is out there it's on the CDs. An essential buy for any reel-to-reel collector
The (Contemporary Classics) CD is VERY informative AND entertaining!
My compliments to the chef!
Thanks and compliments for your work, it is
very precious for people who work in the preservation of historical recordings
and recorders. Best wishes,
"... a unique mini-encyclopedia of tape
recorder models from around the world, with sufficient information and
first class photographs to entice you into finding out more about a particular
model or manufacturer. But be warned - it comes with a health warning!
Your "other half" may not appreciate your new found love and
addiction to this absorbing subject or your rapidly diminishing bank account,
courtesy of e-Bay! Highly recommended."
I enjoyed everything about the 'Get Reel' CD,
from the wonderful tape reel graphics on the disc to all of those incredible
magazine scans.It has provided hours of information gathering pleasure
for me! I'm a Wollensak fan. ...and did I mention how impressed I am with
your label: it is wonderful to be able to handle a CD that looks and almost
feels like a REAL reel of tape..
A very fine goldmine of info - I'm thoroughly
delighted with it. You must have put one hell of a lot of work into creating
it - brilliant, worth every penny !!! Already it's helped me buy an old
Revox G36, which is very nice. Thanks very much indeed.
I must congratulate you on a job well done.
What a lot of memories it brings back!
The Just Tandberg disc was in the morning mail
today, 9 June. A beautiful piece of work, I must say. The user manuals
on the disc come in especially handy since I'm the proud owner of a 3341X,
a 3641XD and a 9141X - none of which were accompanied by a manual.
CD Rom arrived safely today. It is a mine of
information. Must have taken ages to produce and is so user-friendly to
operate. Thanks again.
Received your CD-ROM with many thanks. It is
really G R E A T !!! Congratulations.
I've had a quick browse of the disc and I think
you have done a tremendous job. The content and presentation are first
class. The user manuals are excellent. I look forward to hearing of any
other projects you might embark on. Best regards
Thank you so much for sending me the Get Reel
CD-Rom so promptly.It is superb and it is obvious that you have put an
amazing amount of work into it .I know it will be of immense use to me
for my collection and for further research. Best wishes,
Thanks for the CDROM - it arrived Wednesday last week. It
paid for itself straight away. I checked out the details especially for
my (Revox) G36. Guess what, when I looked at the circuit diagram and checked
against my machine I found I had the valves in the wrong place! There
was an ECC81 where and ECC83 should have been (V10 to be precise). Although
it always worked OK the sound was always a bit thin with no decent bass
when connected up to my Hi-Fi set up. Now all that has changed and it
compares now to my much newer B77. I might even suggest that it is better
- certainly its much easier to thread a tape though the heads on the G36.
I found the content on the ROM really good - its an excellent bit of documentation
and the photos etc are of a high quality. Thanks again!
