TASCAM 22-2 Overhaul Kit - recap, retrim & mechanical service
NAGRAVOX'S electronic capacitor update / upgrade kit and basic mechanical service kit for the TASCAM 22-2 semi professional two track recorder.
Although we are relatively new to Tascam recorders, after getting some of these machines in the workshop over the last few years for repair, we decided could offer full service overhaul kits similar to our well respected Studer and Revox kits.
The kit includes a comprehensive list of components that should be replaced on all power supply, tape transport and audio boards as well mechanical wear items. This is a much smaller kit than that for the 22-4 which has 4 individual channels / tracks as well as sync.
Don’t waste your time replacing just one or two capacitors on a machine that is probably 25+ years old Replace ALL the troublesome electrolytics, tantalums and suppression capacitors.
This kit contains electronic recap / retrim replacement and mechanical service parts:
- Replacement capacitors for all the electrolytic capacitors
- Replacement capacitors for all tantalum capacitors
- New non polarised motor capacitors
- Replace all suppression networks on drive and switching control
- Replace all trimmers with fully enclosed cermet type preset potentiometer trimmers
- Capstan belt chosen and tested by Nagravox. Made in Japan. Most non OEM replacement belts offered on the internet and ebay are not to spec and are too thick, stiff and wide resulting in wow and flutter, slow speed and strain on the capstan motor which is very sensitive. Indeed too much strain on the whole capstan assembly will prematurely wear the capstan shaft bearing and motor.
- Flywheel and capstan bearing service kit including shims and washers to correctly set the flywheel including properly adjusting position of flywheel and setting shaft end play.
- Three different lubricants to lubricate the motors, flywheel / capstan shaft, grease pad on capstan shaft and all mechanical linkages and pivot points.
- An installation manual compiled by our Nagravox workshop based on actual workshop overhauls and experience.
- We also provide tech support / advice if you experience a curly problem.
TOTALS: Capacitors =92. Resistors 12, Trimmers 10 Washers and shims 6, lubricants 3. Small “upgrade” blank labels are provided to mark your upgrade in appropriate areas as a record of service.
Kit Weight is 0.7kg and a higher weight category for postage is applicable.
PINCH ROLLER: We stock both plain bush and deluxe bearing pinch rollers. See our type listing TASCAM T32. If your pinch roller looks at all worn, cracked or is too soft - get a new pinch roller. An option is available on this listing to add a pinch roller.
