Thank you for the comments and advice. The material is indeed sync which is the precise reason I am looking for the same model of Nagra - or thereabouts - as was used in the recording process.

Unless you have the special equipment to "resolve" the sync signal, then playing it back on a Nagra will be no different than playing it back on any other tape machine. Still not clear to me that finding a Nagra to play them back on adds any actual value to the process?

Furthermore, as you have already seen, the old analog Nagras are long out of mainstream use and it will likely be more difficult to find one that is in good operating condition vs. more common 1/4 inch studio tape decks which are still in regular use and maintained to factory specs.

Mr Crowley and all,

Thank you for your kind response. In answer to your question: Yes, the signal will be resolved.

You have all been very kind in offering me all kinds of advice. That's not what I asked for and it's a waste of time to make all these suggestions about what I might do or asking me a load of questions about the project and raising issues of budget - like advising me to purchase in lieu of hiring.

The simple fact is that I don't need that.

I need a Nagra with a Mono head and Pilotone. We have all the other necessary knowledge and equipment already. I know that these suggestions are made out of kindness and altruism, however it doesn't help to tell me all this stuff.

All I need is the one piece of machinery.

Once again, thank you all very much for your warm and generous responses.

Harry.

Well, as I said, there's a mono Nagra 4.2 with Pilotone in VG condition on offer at Trew Audio Toronto. Perhaps you can negotiate a rental with them. Certainly would be worth a phone call.
