Mara restored MCI tape machines??

Post by Harry » Tue Apr 21, 2015 11:52 am

Looks pretty cool.
If I was going to buy a 24 track machine I think this would be it.

Any experience or opinions.

Thanks

would not hesitate if I was in the market. Chris is a super nice and very knowledgable guy, especialy regarding MCI gear. Sold him my JH16 a number of years ago and was an easy transaction and allowed a meetup for a bit of recording geek speak. I'd buy from him, no problem...
I thought this club was for musicians. Who let the drummer in here??

Chris is a great straight-forward guy. I haven't purchased a tape machine from him either, but as has been said above ^^^^ I wouldn't have a problem doing so. Go for it.

Yeah, I can't imagine wanting to regress back into the nightmare that is analog tape (heh heh), but hey, some people are into it. If I was in that particular market I'd definitely check out Mr Mara's wares.

Got tape? That seems to be the problem these days.

It's not cheap but ATR sells 2" tape.

Buying a Mara Machine is a smart move if you need/want an MCI!!! Chris is great.

Chris is a solid guy,

If you buy an MCI, definitely go with him.

Cheers
