Revox G36

Beschrijving / Description

The Revox G36 was the crowning achievement in the development of tape recorders in tube technology.
For the first time, coils with a diameter of 26.5 cm could be placed. The Revox F36 and predecessor could be operated with a maximum coil diameter of 25 cm. For the first time, a synchronous motor was used as tone motor in the Revox G36.
The Revox G36 had mechanical band end switches in two versions. Until device number 36,500 a microswitch was used. From device number 36.501 to 58.000 a feeler operated gold-plated wire contacts.
From serial number 58.001, the tape end was scanned optoelectrically. A light guide through the right pulley and the photoresistor in the stationary bolt was a strange design - more on that later!
The construction of the Revox G36 is already awesome. Ultra-long rods for the pots and rotary switches provide for short signal paths, the tubes in rank and file, the associated resistors and capacitors as well. The machine is not only fun in operation, the revision is thanks to the well thought-out design pure joy. And all that in 1963 - what a vintage !
