  • Otari Mods

    I know I don't even have my deck but a friend sent this and it looked interesting . Roller heads for the tape. Worth it? Run from it?

      I suggest listening to and becoming familiar with your deck before undertaking any mods.

        I know Soren does a similar mode when he works on Otari 5050's or Technics 1500's. I think he offers a mode kit as well.

          I'm going the Myles route. I read more and it sounds 'difficult. Alignment, tension, possible head realignment . I'm going to play my deck and learn it for a while. Maybe later I can have Bottlehead put one on as they are about 100 miles or so from my house,

          i have about 8 x 7.5 ips tapes now. I am ordering a few 15 ips today, then chilling for a while.

              My 2 cents. Going from memory. Did this mod over 5 years ago on a Technics 1506 with a nice improvement on the sound over stock. Well worth the price of the kit, but does require some work.

                Sorens kit is far better, I tried into the bottlehead kit twice both times it had problems handling the tape properly. Soren you send the arms to and he installs it. Much bettet
