Tascam 8 track cassette recorder

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by Herm, Mar 11, 2001.


  1. $415 or best offer - includes shipping in the 48 contiguous united states

    if somebody wants to get into 8 track recording for a low price, this is a good unit to go with. a fully functional 8 track recorder/mixer on a regular cassette format. no, it's not digital, but it sounds pretty darn good. i've recorded some pretty cool sounds on it.

    it's the tascam 488mkII. you can record 8 tracks independently, or 4 tracks simultaneously.

    i just don't use it anymore, and it's in great shape, has been well maintained, and will be shipped in it's original box - with the manual.

    i can accept credit card payment via the i-escrow/tradenable website. or we can do the money order thing too.

    Heck of a price, that would be great for demos and stuff.

    Herm.

    I have a friend in school who's looking for an 8-track. I'll turn him on to yours.

    If I had the money I'd REALLY consider it. 8 tracks is perfect. 5 for the drums 1 for bass, one for guitar, one for vocals. Or even if you play with two guitarists it'd still work fine with 4 on the drums. (one hi-hat, one bass, one snaire, and one in the center of all your cymbols)

    I can't believe no one has jumped on this yet. If I hadn't just picked up a Tascam digital 8 track, I'd be all over it. Just bumping it back to the top so people will see it....
     
  7. Thanks, dude!
     
  8. OK fellow bassists......

    I've had a few bites, but nothing yet.

    $275 includes shipping in the US of A

    I just want to sell it, cause' I'll probably never use it again.
