national RQ 505 reel

This fine machine will serve as your constant companion…

I guess this reel originally came with the tape recorder. Not a great advert for the RQ505’s sonic fidelity.

Thrill to the sound of ‘Japanese folk songs played in a modern jazz style’. I love all that racket, happily obliterated in tape growl and splutter.

Sculpture use and endorse the National 401S ‘reverse-a-track’. Frequency response somewhere between 500-5000Hz. Pinch roller doesn’t grip the tape too effectively, so it’s good for physical manipulations.
