Re: [ARSCLIST] 1/4" Record and Playback head

I think 1958 for quarter-track reel tapes, too. I'm pretty sure Ampex had a somewhat kludgey 2t/qt switch for the play head on their A series and 900 series decks by 1958, too.

I recall buying a Bell stereorecorder in 1958, the year I was  married.

Hello, Stewart,


October  1959 just in time for 1959 Christmas shopping--both
reel-to-reel and the  RCA Sound Tape Cartridge  format.
