Tape recorders used to be a valuable accessory for the songwriter or performer looking to quickly capture those inspired ideas without a lot of fuss. The problem was the compact cassette is notoriously unreliable, prone to breaking and getting caught up in the tape recorder mechanism, and often making recordings of questionable sound quality. There is also the problem of storage – you'd often end up with hundreds of tapes, usually unmarked, quietly deteriorating on the shelf. These days there are a multitude of digital portable recorders available that do away with the need for tapes and record onto built in Flash memory or a SD card. These recorders typically come with some really useful features, including built in stereo microphones, (often in a stereo XY pattern for added clarity) onboard limiters and recording modes, USB ports to transfer the recording to an external computer, and the ability to edit, loop and slow down recordings on playback. At Musician's Friend we have an extensive selection including TASCAM Portable & Field Recorders and Sony Portable & Field Recorders so whatever it is you want to record; birdsong in the desert, your band practice or the chord progression that's been eluding you for days, we have the recorder for you. As with everything we sell, all our Portable & Field Recorders are supported by our price & satisfaction guarantees and free standard shipping now applies to all orders over $25, including many heavy items.
