Thank you for taking the time to visit us. A great deal of time has gone into keeping the data brief and to the point. Feel free to email, telephone, or send written requests for information.


I have been working on reel to reel units since the late 50's. Those early units were replaced with the advanced units available in the late 60's- 70's and 80,s. These are the units that are my focus now. In 1999 I began a small business buying, refurbishing, and selling these units (and parts)  on various auction sites. To date, I have sold close to 1000 of these units, with 100% feedback.

Times have changed. Over the past year listing fees and commission fees have risen dramatically. This prompted me to  update  this website for those people who want to keep buying these vintage units and enjoy them as much as we do. I am no longer listing on  common auction sites  as there fees have risen to almost twenty five %. I have tried to keep my selling prices as they were but it is difficult these days-but i am trying.  I will still be selling parts for most Teacs,Tascams,Pioneers  and Akais and parts. Please use the attached  request form for details on whatever parts you may need .

    I am here to help and will try my best.  thank you for taking the time to read this,Tony Giardina                                                                                                      

I trained for concert piano and played at Carnegie Hall in NYC at the age of 16. Interestingly enough, I graduated from Erasmus High School in Brooklyn NY. I attended  Oswego State University in Oswego NY as an industrial arts major, and subsequently took management courses at Cornell University in NYC. I was employed at Beckton Dickenson in Rutherford NJ as an operations manager for many years, and then as an electronic/mechanical supervisor at IBM in Poughkeepsie NY. After that, I worked at Smith Kline (bought out by Glaxo) as an electro-mechanical maintenance service technician. Am now retired(I think)  I am building an inventory  for the Xmas holidays at this time and selling parts and units  using this website to keep the costs down.
