Service Referrals

Here’s a very partial list of people and companies that we know to work on reel to reel tape decks. We have not met the techs behind the majority of these referrals, but have communicated with them through various reel to reel groups. We cannot therefore vouch for their workmanship, and we encourage feedback through our site here, so we can keep this list up to date.

Want to be added to this list?  Send your tech background and what equipment you work on, along with your city and phone number/email or preferred contact info to:   curt@reeltoreeltech.com
