History And Evolution Of The Audio Recorder

Audio Evidence And The History And
Evolution Of The Audio Recorder
By Ralph D. Thomas

One of my developed passions in life for some reason has always been audio tape recorders. As a kid, I collected them and played with them in my bedroom. I likely drove my parents nuts recording everything. When I grew up, I was lucky enough to become a private investigator and I used them in my work. In the last 30 years, I have marketed them through our company that specializes in retail and wholesale distribution of investigative gear. I have literally used and reviewed thousands of different types and models. In doing all that, one would have a natural want to go back before one’s own time and research the history of the tape recorder as an investigative tool. The step beyond that, of course; is to start collecting all the tape recorders that have developed through the years. That is exactly what has been done and a lot of these older recorders are quite interesting. As a tape recorder addict, many of the newer models are wonders of the world to me. The old recorders I fine truly fascinating. You might not be the tape recorder addict that I am, but it’s worth it to know a little about them. You can find both the old and the new on display in the Spy And Private-Eye Museum in Austin Texas which is now an extension of the Spy Exchange And Security Center. In going through the presentation below, on most of the recorders shown; you can click on the hotlink to get more information about that recorder. When you are in the Austin, Texas area, you might want to stop by the Spy Exchange And Security Center and go through our Spy and Private-Eye Museum so you can see this history in person. If you can not do that, go online to PI Vintage, The Spy And Private-Eye Museum.
