Whirring noise coming from my MTR-90

Postby jrobbins on Fri Apr 14, 2017 12:53 pm

Hey all -
Recently my MTR-90 - which has been a workhorse in my studio for the past 8 years - started making a disconcerting mechanical whirring noise on playback. There are no techs here in Baltimore, at least none I trust to properly diagnose and repair this machine, so I am looking for any advice I can find, and/or any recommendations for a tech who is close enough to maybe travel and help me deal with this. Anyone recognize this sound? Doesn't seem to affect tape speed or playback stability - though I stopped using the machine once this started happening.

Here's a video with the noise:
"Wings - they're only The Band The Beatles Could Have Been."
