LabGuy's World: Ampex VR-3000 Portable Quadruplex VTR!

New! 20120907

         After searching for years, I have finally obtained one of these wonderful machines. It is in rough condition. But, can be restored with a little effort. The seller swears it is a functional deck.

         A test tape is in the mail along with a take up reel. These items are sadly lacking here currently. Then the vacuum lines need to be replaced. These consist of small diameter Pex tubing. I will have to locate a source for that. Then reattach the power leads to the vacuum pump before testing can begin. I have friends who can make replacement key caps for the deck as well. Stay tuned!
