Description: Recording gear - VINTAGE KUDELSKI NAGRA III Reel to Reel Tape Recorder FOR SALE


Vintage Academy Award Winning Nagra III Professional Portable Reel to Reel Tape Recoder with original leather case.

Made in Switzerland by Kudelski SA.

From Wikipedia:
"Nagra-brand tape recorders were the de-facto standard sound recording systems for motion picture and single-camera television production from the 1960s until the 1990s. Their physical appearance, with the single transport selector and large reel-to-reel tape deck are still the stereotypical image most people have of a professional tape recorder."
"The analogue Nagra recorders have a reputation for extreme ruggedness and reliability, essentially being the "Swiss watch" of audio tape recorders. Their cases are highly durable, and every component, from the transport rollers to the gain pots have the feel of excellent engineering. The feature that gave Nagra the edge in quality and film use was Stefan Kudelski's development of the Neo-Pilottone system, where synchronization data could be recorded on the tape in the middle of the audio track, but without crosstalk onto the program recording."

The unit itself is in good to very good condition. It appears to be fully-functional with all the necessary components and accessories, but I can't be sure of that. The leather case is intact but shows plenty of use and wear.


I will ship worldwide, but international (non-USA) buyers will have to arrange their own shipping and all customs, duties, fees, tariffs, etc., are the sole responsibility of the buyer.
