Akai 4000DB Reel to Reel




A beautiful Reel to Reel has arrived at the door. Recently taken out of storage this unit has very little hours in use and shows a ten! The 7" take up spools are original and in fantastic shape. Not a mark anywhere and boy does she sing. Great 3 head system from Akai. These were produced between 1975-1976.
The usual issues are worn out and basically unavailable friction wheels on these so its rather nice to come across a locked away unit in this shape.






The DB signifies the first unit in this series to have on board Dolby noise reduction. Very stylish in it's walnut casing. Just a superb deck. Another example of Akai's great success with tape transfer units. A true vintage sound member!
