Vintage Ampex 1260 Reel To Reel Tape Player/Recorder Tube Picture(s) and Description:
A working 1963 Ampex 1260 tube stereo/mono reel to reel tape recorder. It was built by Ampex at the Sunnyvale, California facility. Back in the day the 1260 sold for $450 to $500 (huge money in 63'). Buddy Holly recorded his famous Apartment Tapes in NYC with an Ampex previous but very similar to this one. It is being sold as is, as it hasn't been fully tested and it's missing the cover and original cord (I'll include an appliance cord that fits). All knobs and levers intact. It starts right up,but needs servicing as it's been sitting in an attic for years.When tested everything worked but on the second or third time of switching to reverse, I suppose the belt slipped or broke as it stopped working. Features a single motor, runs two speeds, has sound on sound capability, has a built in mixer with two mic/ two line inputs, uses three heads (erase~record~play) and the machine is quarter track stereo. It uses five 12AX7, two 12AU7, two 12AT7 and one 6X4 rectifier tube. The 1260 recorder will include all the tubes and there's a substitute standard appliance cord which fits and works in place of the missing power cord. Weighs 40lbs with box and packing. In the continental U.S. $50 for shipping by UPS. Overseas please ask for quote.
