Fostex XR-3 four track recorder - Gav Tries To Fix (with video)

By Gavin Davies

I paid £36 for this broken 4 track on eBay. Description said “Powers up but driveband gone I think”

It had the wrong power supply, but there were other gremlins within…

Music featured in the video is from my “Norli” lo-fi dreampop/rock project.

I have shot a followup video to this where I fix the power input and start figure out the slipping problem with the drive mechanism.
