With a mono cassette head in the panel and a NAB equalised amplifier circuit, Magnetophon is a cassette player without the transport mechanism. Try rubbing old cassette tapes on the panel, or attach a head on a wire to recreate Nam June Paik’s Random Access or Laurie Anderson’s Tape-Bow Violin.

This is a full kit to build the module. It comes with one tapehead, if you want to also DIY a ‘wand’ as shown in the video above (recommended) then we advise you buy an extra tapehead. The Tapehead mounted into the module itself is of limited use compared to a wand. We will have a build guide showing you how to turn an old guitar cable into a wand soon.
