Acme 1500 Tape Recorder


Next up on the shelf clearing project is this really cute little Acme 1500 tape recorder. This is a very well-made little guy, and very well preserved. Someone took very good care of this. According to research I have done, it is the same as a Homey HR408A, which I presume is the original manufacturer. The tape runs forward and rewind, but there is a little dimple in the tires from sitting for a long time. I can tell you that a tone injected on the tape head leads comes out the speaker, so I think the amplifier works. The tape head appears to read continuity through it. I cannot get it to play or record anything. The original microphone is included but I believe it is bad. I suspect a small electret microphone could be installed in it. I am selling it "as is" with no warranty. I found one instance of one of these selling for $125 on an auction site. I'm hoping someone with more expertise than mine could get it working. It's just too nice to throw away. 7-1/2" x 6" x 2-1/2".
