COLUMBIA MASTERWORK M 652 VINTAGE CASSETTE TAPE RECORDER PLAYER. Estate Sale find, check the pictures over, I’ve uploaded as many varied views as possible. It’s a late 1960’s Columbia Masterwork cassette tape player / recorder, complete with all the original extras. Black’leather’ carry case, with strap. Paperwork relating to dealers and service agents. Original box, still with 2 pre-formed inner polystyrene storage panels. This item is obviously used, and of some vintage and, as such, has some normal signs of very light surface wear. The report on the various functions is as follows. Volume – Works, goes louder and quieter, no crackle. Fast Forward – Works, slow, but adequate. Rewind – As above, works, slow but adequate. Stop – Works, no issues. Record – Tested, using the item’s external microphone. Records well and plays back at normal speed, no pitch distortion etc, or at least I recorded myself reading aloud a page of the manual and sound the same as usual. Tone control – Works, very light crackling, possible’dirty pot’ issue. Microphone condition – Excellent, still has the original band fixing on it. Single headphone condition – Excellent, works, although sound quality may well be diabolical. No jack or socket issues. Power cord – works, no problems. Black case – Light surface wear, mainly where the cover folds back for when you want to put a new tape in, unavoidable, really. Light’creasing’ around the control butons area, see pictures. The strap has a few places where the polystyrene from the inner box panels has stuck, but it seems like these would clean off with a minimal amount of work. No scuffs, torn areas, split seams and both metal corner strips are still present and correct. Manual – excellent condition. 8 pages, all the basics explained. Dealer booklet, also excellent. Battery compartment – Looks clean, no residue, no long-term battery storage issues. Untested, I ran the unit off the power cord. Please view the 12 pictures uploaded for more specifics, they are part of the description, too. Rare item, all the extras, and all tested, and fully operational… Own a piece of history!
