Reel Resilience is part of AV Resilience and draws on the owner, Iain Betson's 30+ years in the professional audio/video and broadcast industries.


Trained by the BBC as a studio support engineer at Broadcasting House in London, Iain worked in the studios at BH, at the world-famous Maida Vale studios, the Corporation's Radio "Outside Broadcast" department and latterly in their chain of local radio stations.


In that time he worked on a wide range of Studer/Revox recorders, from the PR99 to A800 24 track machines, as well as models from Telefunken (M15A), Uher (4000 Report series), Lyrec (Fred and Frida), Sony (PCM 3324), Mitsubishi (X-86) and Nagra (IV and V).


With the renewed interest in open-reel machines he has expanded this experience to other Studer machines (A820, A827), models from Otari (MTR 90 and MX-50), Tandberg, MCI, Teac and Akai.

Reel Resilience offers sales, service and repair of analogue open-reel tape recorders and cassette decks as well as a service that is unique in the UK: Classroom based training for owners who wish to keep their machines up to spec.
