Revox Studer Cassette Tape FULL MONTY overhaul Kits A710 A721 B710 B215
NAGRAVOX FULL MONTY KITS - everything you are likely to need to restore or update your REVOX or STUDER Cassette Deck
What's the meaning of the phrase 'The Full Monty'? Complete, the whole thing. The phrase made popular from the 1997 smash hit comedy drama film of the same name. However it probably originated in about 1907 from the bespoke tailoring business in Sheffield of Sir Montague Burton, where the term was used to describe a complete three-piece suit.
Over the years customers have asked for a full kit instead of ordering individual sub kits. They also have tended to ask advice on what they should do to fully overhaul and restore their tape machines. So this is what I recommend and if a machine comes into our workshop THIS FULL SET OF KITS is what we fit. It takes into account the most likely components mechanically and electrically that may have degraded over the many years due to sitting idle or being over-worked. So, if you want to service, restore or overhaul your machine as completely as you can, this is what I recommend. Without wishing to seem that its just a 'sales spiel', of course individual sub kits are always available on their own. Please refer to the listings under the specific model section of my store. Please also see the precise details of each sub kit under its listing if you require more information on any particular sub kit.
Each model has electronic differences but there are variations based on the diameter of the two pinch rollers. You should check them. There are quite a few of these variations for the 710 series. If you need help, contact us detailing the current diameters of your pinch rollers and model no.
