A classic model from Sony.
TC-366 is a 4-track, 2-channel stereo / mono.
Special features are:
Noise supressor to cut off high frequency noise. Tape-tension regulator to reduce flutter and wow. Automatic shut-off mechanism. Tape selector for Low noise or High Output. Slanted cabinet designed for convenience of,
operating in either horizontal or vertical use.
7-1/2 and 3-3/4 are ideal for recording music when best sound quality is desired.
1-7/8 is ideal for speech especially when longer recording time is needed.
Built in Noise Suppressor allows full pass-band
for the major part of the audio frequency range,
as it does not affect response frequencies below 9kHz.
Mixing can be made by using the mic inputs and the RCA inputs simultaneously.
Sound on Sound function composing a mixed recording on one track tape,
and a new external signal through one of the microphone input.
This option on 366 can create a one person record a duet, trio or other special effects.
The later TC-377 had slight cosmetics changes from 366, more of those details in
the next section coming soon.
* Controls and Connectors *
* What's inside *
One single motor operation with 4 belts for different purposes.
Linkage between all functions can be a challenge to adjust right for a beginner,
many time the play-lever don't lock properly or fforward/rewind function is slow.
I disassemble the whole upper section and start from scratch,
as most of these need a severe restoration.
New idler-rubber,brakes + linkage cleaned and adjusted.
New idler-wheel and help-belt installed.
Assembly again for final adjustment of brakes,tape-tension,speed,
pinch-roller pressure and head-adjustment if needed.
