Roller Bearing Tape Guide Assembly

Our improved tape guide feature is a vastly improved version from Technics' original static tape guide assembly. We use military spec washers, spacers and bearings. Our bearings are packed with non-conductive grease and all parts are made with 100% stainless steel. This greatly enhances the tape path performance, improves the fast forward and rewind functionality, and eliminates tape drag that is caused by the original static design. Also available as a DIY project, this performance upgrade is available on all Technics open faced reel to reels.

Tape Lifter Stand-Off Assembly

Properly functioning lifters are critical to extending optimal performance of your tape deck as they hold the tape away from the heads during fast forward and rewind. Technics' original tape lifter assembly offer a static arm that the recorded side of the magnetic tape rubs against. This causes wear on the lifter at the same time degrading or wearing away at your recorded music. Using military grade 100% stainless steel parts, our new assembly utilizes bearings packed with non-conductive grease. The elimination of drag adds many hours of life to your recordings and significantly reduces the possibility of tape shed.
