Groov-e Retro Personal Cassette Player - Silver Description

It's time to blow the dust of your old cassette collection and have a nostalgic party with the Groov-e Retro Personal Cassette Player! This personal cassette player has a suitably chunky old school appearance, and comes with a removable clip at the back, letting you attach it to your belt and take it on the go. 

Whether you've got a collection of pop, acid house and alt-rock classics from the heyday of portable magnetic tapes, or want to listen to recorded radio shows from yesteryear, this is a fantastic choice. The Groov-e Retro Personal Cassette Player comes with a pair of earphones, but a 3.5mm headphone jack ensures you can swap them out with your favourite wired headphones if you want.

As well as cassettes, this Groov-e machine also plays the radio. With both AM and FM bands available, you're sure to find a station to bop to. The chunky control buttons are authentically retro, as is the manual tuning dial. Without any presets you can recapture the feeling of precisely dialling in your tunes.

The Groov-e Retro Personal Cassette Player doesn't just play, it also listens. Hit the big red button to activate the player's built in microphone and turn it into a tape recorder! It's a great way of recording retro voice memos to yourself or for interviewing your friends and family.

This tape recorder function has a secret, hidden musical purpose. Before the advent of Digital Audio Workstations, MPCs and MIDI keyboards, the only way to efficiently create looped sounds was with tape loops, never ending magnetic tapes played with a reel-to-reel recorder. This old-school dubbing technique has found new fans, and though reel-to-reel recorders are all but unheard of, with a little bit of DIY know-how you can modify a standard cassette tape to loop endlessly. With this technique, any recorded sounds will layer over one another, creating a truly psychedelic sound. It's a great technique for producing experimental music or low-fi hip-hop beats!

Manufacturer's description:

Go back to basics with the Groov-e Personal Cassette Player and give yourself an excuse to the old tapes down from the attic.

The Groov-e Personal Cassette Player will let you listen to your favourite cassettes out loud through the external speaker or listen privately through the included earphones. Or why not use the built-in radio to listen to your favourite FM and AM stations whilst on the go or relaxing at home?

Thanks to an integrated microphone and one-touch recording, you can also use the Cassette Player as a voice recorder.

Great, simple cassette player was surprised how good the playback sound was

Never used this website before but was very straight forward. Got email confirmation right away after the purchase.Again, when product was despatched and arrived within a few days. The tape player is perfect. Good playback sound.Easy to use, no extra buttons- just straight forward how the 'old ones' used to be. Very happy with my purchase.
