Re: [ARSCLIST] Wire recorders
I have restored a vintage transport and installed modern playback electronics which is capable of producing a very fine transfer.
If you'd like to discuss this further , please feel free to contact me.

I have about 20 wire spools that I would like to listen to and perhaps
transfer to a digital format. I was told they were recorded on
equipment purchased from Sears at the time (early 40s). I know very
little about such equipment. My questions to the group are:
a) are there any working wire players available out there?
b) if a is negative, I could conceivably rig up something, are there
any specifications one can consult regarding such apparatus, or does
anyone know anything about the technology? Displacement (in/sec),
magnetic strength, configuration of the reading/writing head?
Thank you all in advance
