** Thank you for your interest but all units have sold out! Another batch will hopefully be available late summer/early fall.**

After years of repairing and modifying tape players, I have finally created my own design for a modified, wide-range, variable speed tape player - the MVS-1. Unlike other available variable-speed players, the speed on the MVS-1 is super wide, spanning 3 octaves. It can go from super-fast chipmunk speed to super-slow demon voice, all the way till it stops - that’s right, STOPS. The ability to to stop the tape opens up new sonic possibilities such as tape scratching, weird pitch shifts, dramatic dive bombs, and of course real tape stop effects.

The MVS-1 bundle includes everything you need to start recording, playing, sampling, warping, bending, glitching, scratching, pitch shifting, and experimenting with cassettes. It includes the MVS-1 recorder, a handmade tapeloop, an unused blank tape, and a random sampling tape to get you started. The unit runs off 4AA batteries, but just in case I also included a power supply so you never stop rolling.

The MVS-1 is a labor of love and take time to make and source 40 identical tape recorders. I buy them new and used and completely clean, repair, demagnetize, change belts, and test each unit to full working order. I carefully modify each unit with my own custom modification, before prepping, painting, and packaging each unit. I truly believe the MVS-1 is unlike other commercially available cassette recorders out there and I am proud to put my name on is a product that make, support, and actually use in my own art and music. Your financial support of this literally helps keep my lights on and the tapes running, so thank you!
