Hi,

i want to buy this equipment and wanted to ask you guys if anyone has any experience with this hardware. My budget is low and the mixer & reel to reel is available in my area for about 300 for both.

What do you think?
The Fostex R8 uses 1/4" Tape. I never worked with Tapemachines before but ive read that 1/4" will not bring much saturation.
Ive taken a look at the heads and think they are ok. But you can see little black marks in the middle of the head.


What do you think about Tascam M 1508 or Tascam Mixers in General especially when it comes to dubbing to dubbing? I think 3 aux sends are pretty good. Does anybode know how the eq sounds? You can adjust the Frequency of the Middle-Eq.

Ok I think thats enough for the beginnig.
Hope someone on the board has some answers and ideas and tips.
Bless
