This is one of the first Shophony Baird recorders produced as the later versions used valves such as the ECC83, this recorder was the only model series which came from the Baird company as their main line of business were TV’s and radios. The internals o this recorder show simple mechanics, the rewind motor is directly connected to the spool, the capstan motor powers the capstan and tape up reel, this recorder does not have a fast forward capability. Notice that the tape heads show that the tape must be wound oxide out, a very unusual method which many manufactures did not use this method was suppose to limit tape print through.
