Ferrograph series 7

The Ferrograph Series 7

I had one of these when I was in my early twenties. I remember walking home with it, it weighs a ton! Most of the recordings on this site were made on one of these.

Some stats...

3 speeds: 7 & 1/2, 3 & 1/3, 1 & 7/8 ips
3 heads: erase, record, play
format: stereo half track
max spool size: 7 & 1/4 inches

Their first transistor model.

The Ferrograph Series 6

I had one of these before the series 7. Sadly, no recordings survive from this machine. It was 2 track (half track) and battleship green. Very 'clunky' and had valves.
