After seeing something on here about using old tape recorders for tape delay I remembered I have this Concord 330 in my garage. I bought it at Goodwill years ago with the intent of tearing it apart for an assemblage art project but never got around to it. It seems sturdy, clean, and complete but I can’t find much info on it and don’t know much about it other than it uses 5" reels, has auto record/stop features, variable speed, and is probably from 1975, so I thought I’d see if anyone here knows anything.
Does it look complete? I believe it is but I don’t know much about these. Do I need any kind of adapter to put the reels on? Also, for the purposes of using it as an effect, do I need to use blank tape or can I use tape that already has audio on it? I’d assume used tape would be acceptable and cheaper/easier to find at a thrift store. Any other random info or tips you may have on these machines or using real tape delay in general would be appreciated. Thanks.
