Post some photos. I bet it is a Roberts deck which was Akai in Japan.
Honeytone Reel to Reel Information
I recently acquired a little Reel to Reel at a local antique shop. I don't normally dabble in vintage audio equipment but there was just something about this little recorder I couldn't resist. The problem is, I can't find any information on this thing anywhere and not being familiar with this sort of equipment I'm not entirely sure where to look. It bears the name of Honeytone on the lid but the only other marking is "JAPAN" embossed on the bottom and on the circuit board. I can find no model number, no serial number, nothing. The body is entirely plastic with a beige main case and an off white hinged lid. I have photos I can send if anyone thinks they can help. Does anyone have any information related to this or similar equipment or perhaps know where I could or should search? I would love to get this little thing working.
