Akai 770-X Cross-Feild

by _Papa_ In reply to Have fun with that

Beautiful hf recording, but it apparently has a bent capstan. I'm still looking for a good one. Flutter is audible on slower music, not so much on rock or my favorite big band stuff, but at any case, I won't waste time trying to copy stuff with it unless i can get this fixed

Is it the capstan sleeve or pin right from the motor itself?

You can probably sub a part from other equipment, a lot of older equipment used the same factory for parts as there were fewer options then.

There's a local shop here that would do it. I've taken them everything imaginable, from vintage to high end pro audio hardware and they can do anything. Small shop, with a dedicated owner. Give Gordon a call or send email:
