All my Nakamichi decks are in Japan getting serviced, seems there's a holdup due to replacement belts being inferior to the originals so they are sourcing some reissue rubber to make belts worthy of tube tone. I'll demag and align the heads on one of my three head dual pinch roller Sony decks so I'm ready to hear Spider tone in all its glory! Wow and flutter and tape saturation rocks! Those digital echoplex sims are pretty close too, better at worse-tone than any digital recording sims of tape saturation. Do the latest amp sims designed for recording slip in a little tape sim to spice up the recordings of tube tone and make them sound more vintage correct?
