In 1993 I found two Ampex AVR-3 Quad tape machines stored in a TV station right here in San Francisco.
I moved both machines into my home studio and brought them back to life. I restored the Quads to full factory specifications.
I will never forget one particular job.
I was asked to transfer a Quad Tape of a children’s science show. The tape contained the only recorded memory of a young preteen who passed away after the show had aired.
I was moved by the happiness that I brought to them by transferring the QUAD tape to VHS. I realized that I had to make this service available to everyone.
