Nagra Reel To Reel Perfection

The Nagra battery powered reel to reel is Swiss industrial design perfection. These were the standard field recording devices until the 90's. From the 50's to the 90's it was upgraded and refined 9 times. I'd really love to have one of these.

Some history.

Machine history.


  1. Yes, these were special. Everything felt so smooth and solid. It performed difficult mechanical maneuvers smoothly and effortlessly.

  2. My lust for one of these runs pretty deep. I'll have one some day. It would be fun to record live bands with peermission of course.
