Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

I have a teac 3340 reel to reel recorder and believe it can only function in 2 speeds 7 1/2 ips and 15 ips. I have many reel to reel recordings that are 3 3/4 ips. Is there an adapter or gadget I can use to play the 3 3/4 ips on the Teac 3340?

In short, no. if you look closely you will see the Teac 3340 has a much larger/thicker capstan shaft than other Teac reel decks. This feature allows the faster tape speeds...7 1/2 and 15 ips. In order to slow down the Teac 3340 you would have to change the flywheel to one from another deck that was made to run at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2. Which is possible but some work..plus you would have to find a slower speed flywheel from another Teac deck. Also to maintain performance, the bias and Eq positions for the slower speeds would have to be readjusted from 7 1/2 and 15.

There is no adapter to play tapes slower on this unit. There are other Teac models like the A330S or A2300S that can do it. You need to match up your tapes to the proper machine.
On another note some people record the high speed audio into their computer and then use software to cut the speed in half- that should work as well. A lot of trouble though.

No, that would require slowing the capstan or making its diameter smaller for the rpms it turns now. Sorry.

Reel recorder


The A4070G can record in each direction but has a switch that needs to change to switch the heads. This must be stuck after all this time and so the deck needs service. They are not easy unit to work on. I have one in my shop now. The bad news is that they use combo record and erase Ferrite heads that can not be sourced anymore.
I am very familiar with this model as I worked at Teac and fixed many of them.

How do I connect a teac ax-20 mixdown panel to a teac a-3340s reel to reel?


It's a 4-in, 2-out panel. Well, you attach up to 4 INPUT channels (labeled plainly on it) and run the two output channels to any two of the the Record In connectors on the Tape Deck.

I have teac reel to real tape recorder. It drags in play mode and the speed is wrong. Do I need to change the belt?


Hi....
Most likely .
All the belts should be changed out and wheels/rubber rollers need cleaning.
