“The Recorderman” Warranty

All the recorders sold by The Recorderman have an exclusive "One Year Warranty" (necessarily exclusive since the producer is not existing any more). This warranty covers any breakdown or malfunctioning, exception made for those that are due to accidental causes (electric shock, knocks, floods and so on..) or improper and /or careless use of the recorder (among the most frequent we find: use of old tapes that have the problem of sticky tape, set up in humid and/or dusty rooms, bad or non-existent cleaning routine or cleaning with substances that are not fit and/or dangerous, tampering).

Every Studer has its own original user's manual on Cd-Rom, It also comes with a report of all measurements done at the end of the refurbishment and after the break-in period. The report certifies the level of the performances of the recorder and the compliance with the manufacturer's characteristics. With reference to what is stated above "The Recorderman" underlines that the certified characteristics are superior to those that are declared by the manufacturer. In fact during the refurbishment "The Recorderman" insists on the replacement of worn electronic components with updated hi end electronic components and not with vintage (NOS) original components. Modern components in fact have higher performances (we are referring to capacitors, resistors and so on).


"The Recorderman" claims the ownership of this "Hi End procedure" . It is a unique refurbishment method that no other European dealer uses. This method in fact is more expensive and sometimes the buyer does not fully appreciate it, but it's a path that has a real impact on the sonic performance of the recorder. To achieve this result "The Recorderman" works with Giorgio Foschi that has a decennial and proven competence, Giorgio has an historical knowledge and technique know- how that are unique in Europe and shares with "The Recorderman" the certainty of the importance of this kind of refurbishment.
This solid partnership makes also possible the great availability of reel to reel recorders on this website and the certainty that all the recorders are delivered at their best. “The Recorderman” offers a service of delivery and set up of the recorder at the buyer's domicile, this service is free of charge in an area of 60 km from “The Recorderman's” main office and available also for longer distances under reimbursement of the travel expenses.
We also provide all the information to correctly use and do the maintenance of the recorder. A small cleaning set is provided.
During the One Year Warranty period if any problem should arise “The Recorderman” guarantees the intervention (that is always free of charge in an area of 60 km from “The Recorderman's” main office or under payment of travel expenses in a larger area) to understand what the problem is about and then consequent fixing up. If fixing is not possible on site “The Recorderman” cannot guarantee in advance the delivery time.
