Teac "Tascam Series" 30-4 70's Vintage Analogue Reel To Reel Tape Recorder - 100V

The Teac Tascam Series 30-4 recorder/reproducer was released in the late 70's. It is a 1/4 inch, 4-track, 4-channel tape deck designed for professional type recording set-ups, in which mixers, master recorders, microphones, auxiliary signal processors, and other equipment are used in conjunction as a complete recording system

At the time of release Tascam had not been set up as it's own company, and these were known as the Teac Tascam Series. The 
The 30-4 is a model very similar to the more commonly known, A-3340S. However it is equipped with a function selector and significantly improved switches to make simultaneous sync recording as easy as possible.
