I have a very nice Teac 80-8  (8 Track) tape machine for sale. I service vintage synths/tape machines in Columbus, Ohio for a living. Look up Abell Audio online for details.

This was bought second hand from Rick Ocasek’s Son, who is a Columbus resident a few years back. I was told by him that Rick used this exact machine in the late 80s/90s. (Rick Ocasek of the Cars)
