Rare, vintage Ampex 350-2 tape recorder, with Ampex transport, original Ampex preamps and original Ampex power supplies.  This tape recorder sounds incredible, I used it for years, nothing like the sound of tubes!  I'm listing this unit as non-functioning because it hasn't been fired up since I used it last but physically the condition is fair to good.  I would expect the capacitors will need replacing, tubes tested / replaced, heads checked / replaced and a thorough tune up and alignment. It need's to be mounted in a vertical or horizontal position using a very sturdy and robust rack.  The transport alone weighs nearly 70 lbs!  It's also important to note that the power supplies are essential to using the preamps. Original Ampex power supplies for the 350 are extremely rare.

  •  1/4” two track, 7.5/15ips, with mono erase head.  
  • Original Ampex preamps and Ampex power supplies. 
  • Safely stored since 1987, was in top operating condition when stored. 
  • Previously used in San Francisco Bay Area recording studio.
