This is a 3 minute preview of our 9 minute profile of Akai reel to reel tape recorders . The full version is available both as part of the 3 DVD 7 hour set, downloadable videos from the internet, or bought as an individual video at http://reel2reeltexas.com/DVDR2RTexas....

This 7 hour video provides an overview of the development of sound recording from its earliest days through cylinder recording, vinyl records, optical recording, wire recording and magnetic recording. We then provide a segment on how the tape recorder works. We then profile the 150 reel to reel tape recorders in our collection by providing the histories of 40 + companies who built these recorders from the 1940's to the 1980's. Company histories include Ampex (we have Capitol Records Ampex 200A recorder in our collection); Akai, Crown International, Dokorder, Magnecord (with photos from the 1950's factory), Sony (with clips of their factory and evolution), Studer (detail about Willie Studer rebuilding 500 American recorders and decision to build a better recorder while founding Studer / ReVox), Teac/Tascam (including the Teac 80-8 recorder with a live recording of Willie Nelson - this was also the recorder that was used to create the Stars Wars R2D2 and 3CPO sound effects) and many more.
