TASCAM MS 16 - need assistance

Post by wendyschneider » Tue Jan 23, 2018 3:49 pm

Hello list - this is Wendy in Madison. I own a Tascam MS 16 and would love to speak with someone who is familiar with this deck. Hope to hear back. I need some info on general maintenance - it's been sitting in storage for about 10 years and I'm getting it fired up again.

i have owned one for nearly 20 years and worked on it constantly for about half of that time (all digital now). was horribly lazy with maintenance, admittedly. but hit me up if you have some basic questions. hopefully i can help.

I know it looks a bit spammy, but the download worked for me the last time I tried. The manual has basic maintenance procedures.

I owned one for about 7 years and did some maintenance on it. What are you wondering about? The manual is very helpful but doesn't cover everything.
