Well I won this on ebay for a massive £13 and was quite pleased.....it's a Philips EL3452A reel to reel complete with microphone, instructions and some tapes.
Condition-wise, it seems to have had little use as there is no head wear and all the rubber components are good. Been stored in dry conditions I would think.
Only three caps (brown wima's) and she runs well after some minor lubrication in appropriate places.
On the tapes, well there is the top 20 of August 1968 with fluff Freeman, the Engelbert Humpadinck show, David Jacobs presenting Frank Sinatra at the Royal Festival Hall in 1970, an entire wedding ceremony from 1964 and then a family argument of all things !!
I did contact the local seller in case the items on the tape had any sentimental interest, but they belonged to his late stepfather and "have no sentimental interest whatsoever". So I guess it say's it all really.
