This is a full track mono CCIR recorder with 50 or 60 Hz Pilot sync, S/N 0417592
If you would like to record on a Nagra and playback on a non pilot recorder, remove the pilot link from the pilot socket on the right hand side of the recorder to switch off the pilot, otherwise you could hear the 50 or 60 Hz when you play the tape, if you are not sinking the tape to video or film camera you can leave the pilot link unplugged. BELOW RIGHT, See pilot link plug socket, a pilot sync plug is supplied with this recorder. Above the pilot link and handle fixing screw are the two large case opening screws, please note; only unscrew 3 or 4 turn do not take screws right out, or parts could be lost in the recorder.
ABOVE LEFT, 1 & 2 are 3 pin XLR microphone inputs that are switchable to use Dynamic 48 or 12 volt phantom and "T" powered microphone, The switch for one input is above the VOL control for the speaker output, the ACC has a Line input and takes the speed control. The line input & output are on the MIXER socket using a 6 pin Tuchel plug or the LINE input is on 4 mm banana plugs.
ABOVE RIGHT, you have the playback speaker and the PILOT IN socket, for Pilot sync plug the pilot link plug in this socket, the 4 mm banana sockets are 4.4 volts output at 600 ohm, if you feed this output to a Stereo Nagra you must use the QCSE lead or a copy with a 47K ohm pad. Or use the 7 pin MIXER socket that has a Playback or Direct output, leads can be made to order. For the POWER PACK, 6 pin Tuchel socket, you can use the 24 volts ATN power supply, the 35 volts ATN 2 or ATN 3 power supplies, an ATN 3 with battery charger or the UAP11 or 12 power supply on main page.
The 35 volt will give a much faster rewind speed.
ABOVE: The heads are in good condition and no head loss adjustment was needed when lining up the biasing, the tape bias and EQ.
The tape I supply on this Website as been selected because the gain and HF is close to the old AGFA 468 or 368, Zonal 468 / 368 and BASF 468 or 368, The speed and EQ switch has to positions for each speed, 1 can to set to flat and 2 can de set to a HF roll off or lift, whatever you prefer.
The only scratches on this recorder are on the lift off hinges, they would have been change but I am out of stock.
Nice clean battery box with no battery corrosion
The recorder works from 12 x U2 batteries or external ATN mains supply or a SMPS power supply see item UAP6 to 12 (not included)
ON THE BATTERY BOX RIGHT, the second microphone input switching is behind the meter with a black knob, it has all the pilot boards fitted and a Nagra Crystal Pilot Generator, that has a switch that change between 50 or 60Hz. The auto record level board is also fitted.
Nagra is the best reel-to-reel tape recorder ever made with
the best of Swiss engineering that you are never likely to see again.
One of the joys of owning a Nagra is that it is an all in one over the shoulder recorder and when you switch it on you know it's going to work and give you a professional quality recording in any conditions
