LT-44. Produced in Japan in the 60's.
They also produced a similar tape with other names, such
ST-666”, “Lloyds TP-655”,
They had the same design and differ only in the form of
control knobs. Actually, at that time published many
different recorders - toys. All of them were made on the
general principle, and consisted of simple kinematics,
the standard wiring for 4 transistors, built-in speaker,
volume control, and in some cases, the speed regulator.
Everywhere the movement of shaft reel table
transferred directly from the motor shaft, or two
engines. Many of these toys were only the appearance of
the shell, and often do just the name. Almost all of
these recorders were two food - for circuit 9 v, and for
the engine - from 3 to 6 v. Juliette LT-44 fits into
this category recorders - toys. Its distinguishing
feature is a relatively compact and durable metal case,
185 x 88 x 60 mm.
Weight 900 grams. Coil diameter 76 mm (3 inches) can hold a tape about 20
minutes of work. Speed controller for it, but the engine
probably not the worst, so that the unevenness of the
speed there is not very strong, is much worse. Wiring
collected 5 transistors (2SB172 - 2 pcs, 2SB175, 2SB32,
KV-5), normal speaker, the volume is enough.
Erase head no, instead a permanent magnet. From their
unique Juliette LT-44 favorably with the original design
control knobs. In models of "Star-Lite ST-666",
"Lloyds-TP-655" are quite simple and inexpressive. Power
wiring - 9 v, battery type PP3, food Engine - 3 v, two
batteries type C. No built-in microphone. The front
panel has two connectors (3,5 mm) to connect a
microphone and earpiece.
The device was bought in working condition. It
took only make prevention, change the lubricant. The set
includes the original packing box, instruction manual,
microphone, and two straps of different lengths.
