Hello Everybody! :biggrin5:

I posted this one on the VIntage Gear forum, but I thought I would try this one as well in case there is a different group with this forum.

I am working to put together a collection of sound/audio gear as well as some camera/film gear from roughly the mid 1970s time period and I am wondering if anyone on this forum might have some direction on where I could find these. This is for a display that I am contributing to and factually the items donít necessary have to work since they will be for display purposes. I have been searching Ebay and the general internet and have found some of the items that I am looking for but I still have much to find! :frown5:

Does anyone have any tips or direction as to how I could go about finding these or who might have one or two that he would be willing to sell Ė even if they are non-operational items but that still have decent appearance? On the microphones, they could factually be empty inside but I need the original housings for these. Any help or direction on this would be very much appreciated!

Sound gear:

Baldwin Synthasound synthesizer
Soundcraft 200 mixboard
Sony PS-X55 record player
Teac reel to reel tape recorder
Nakamichi 1000 ZXL computing cassette decks (I want 4 of them!)
Sequerra Pyramid Metronome speakers (Pyramid Met 2 Plus 2W plus the T 1 ribbon tweeters)
Sony TC-55 cassette recorder (need 2 of them)
Stephens reel to reel 12 channel recording machine
Neve 12 channel mix board
Nackamichi tape recorder
Sony C 500 microphone
Neumann M49B microphone
Neumann U47 microphone
Sony C 37 microphone
Neumann U67 microphone
Neumann KM84 microphone
Neumann U87 microphone
Neumann KM56 microphone
Sennheiser e602
AKG D 224 microphone
AKG C 24 microphone
Electro-Voice Cardiline Model 642 microphone
AKG C 12 microphone

The following is the photography/film/editing items in case anyone here has any ideas on these:

Spectra Tri Color light meter
Acmade film editing unit
Sony VO 1600 VCR (I need 2 of them!)
Palmer Sixteen Double Band Interlock film projector
JVC camera SC-40544-003
JVC portable VCR CR-4400U
JVC power adaptor AA-P44U
Mamiya RB67 ProS camera
Mamiya crosshair viewfinder (2 of them) for an RB67 ProS camera
Bag for RB 67 ProS camera

Thanks again for any help that you can give on my search!
