This machine is owned by a professional Film Production Sound Mixer / Recordist, it has been regularly service and maintained throughout its life regardless of cost, by a UK's qualified Nagra engineer.

This recorder has never been hired and is therefor is in very good condition for it age

There is minimal head wear on the machine and it just needs a set of 12 D cells or ATN power supply and a roll of tape to start recording. The machine is biased for AGFA, Zonal, BASF 468 or 368 and the sound quality and levels between direct and off tape are identical.

<<<<<<The Perspex lid has the side missing near the back corner.

This is a full track mono recorder with 50Hz or 60 Hz Pilot sync, Before we had the Crystal Pilot Generators the 50Hz main frequency was used.

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 will hear the 50 or 60 Hz when you play the tape, if you are not syncing the tape to video or film camera you can leave the pilot link unplugged

This Recorder comes with Shoulder Strap and fixing screw, and Copy of Instruction Manual, a pilot link plug, a SMPS power supply, roll of BASF tape with some lineup tones and music for you to test the recorder,

Please note: -

The Perspex lid has the side missing near the back corner and has some scratches, see nagra input side picture, the 12 x U2 batteries or external ATN mains supply are (not included)

BEHIND THE METER, There is 2 changeable 200 ohm Dynamic microphone amps with the roll off switches. these pre amps can be changed to the QPM3.5 type. Behind them across in front of the battery box is the automatic record level circuit board, this is not always fitted

The QPM 3.5 microphone input powers 12 volt T microphones like the Sennheiser MKH405, 415 or 416T or MKH 805 815T or 816 type.

ON THE BATTERY BOX, This Recorder is fitted with a Crystal Pilot Generator and the one fitted is 50Hz or 60 Hz,

 

I always changed the XLR microphone inputs on the Nagra to 3 pin XLR sockets to suit modern microphones
