EMI Studio taperecorder - 1959

Recommended Posts

I was going through some old snapshots, and found these snaps from the Beatles museum in Liverpool.  It's an early EMI studio taprecorder

Those old pieces of audio history look wonderful, with the enamel or hammertone paint, bakelite knobs, and full of valves. 

 

i can only imagine the music that went though that recorder.

Love looking at this kind of history.      Rola is a brand name from my youth.  Nearly every guitar amp I owned had Rola speakers (and later Plessey-rola).

Yes.  as it's a 1959 model, I suppose that means it was in use when the Beatles started recording.
