CONSUMER GRADE REEL-TO-REEL: It is with regret that we have decided NOT to provide a repair service for consumer-grade tape-recorders. These machines are typically single motor mechanisms that use a combination of wheels and belts to provide the tape transport drive. They also tend to have a single record/replay head too. This business decision was not taken lightly, Reel Resilience would truly love to work on all machines, but resources and client expectations, as to the work that can be delivered for the cost incurred, and the value of the machine afterwards, simply cannot be met.

SEMI-PROFESSIONAL ("PRO-SUMER") TAPE-RECORDERS: Reel Resilience is happy to provide a repair and line-up for these machines. They are typically recorders that accept 7" or 10.5" diameter reels, offer 7.5 to 15ips record/replay speed and have three-motor transports, and were designed for high-end home, or light professional, use. However, prospective clients MUST realise that the cost of the parts and work required to bring such a machine back to manufacture specification, or refurbish the exterior, will most likely exceed its re-sale value by a large margin. Reel Resilience is happy to provide a report on the work done, so as to help justify a future asking price, but even this is not likely to re-coup the owner their outlay.
