Fostex A Series Model A-8 - Multi-Track 1/4" Reel to Reel Tape Recorder - 100V

The Fostex Model A-8 is an 8 track reel-to-reel recorder and uses 1/4" tape. This little beauty was released in the 80's and was designed by Fostex as a simple and easy to use device for small studios or home recordings. Do not let its small size deceive you as it sure packs a big analogue punch!
