Vintage WORKING Pioneer 8 Track Car Stereo Player TP-828. Working and tested, though it slipped a little at times when playing. So I took a look inside and though the band is intact I think it needs replacing.
Well it is very old and has been sitting in my garage for many years. Other than that it works great. Changes tracks with ease, the Volume control is a little stiff to move but, as far as I remember, it always was. Please see pictures for cosmetic condition. Shown powered up with tracks changing and playing.Photos shown in this listing are of the actual item for sale. NO STOCK PHOTOS USED unless otherwise stated. All our items, including changeable parts like bulbs, etc are security marked. Sorry about this , but there are those out there that think it is clever to change parts and return faulty ones.
In photographs we occasionally use props to display items in the best light possible. These props, like my white board, lighting , kitchen table, Train track, boxes, my left or right hand are not including unless otherwise stated in the listing.
Sorry for you having to read this but you would be surprised how many people think the items come with my table or a part of my anatomy that I have accidentally caught on camera. If it does not say base, stand , table , in either the main body of the description or title... Then they are NOT included in the sale.
I do not Sell Just Passable Vacuum Tubes. Low and weak tubes are unceremoniously thrown in the nearest trash can, unless they are collectors Items.
When using the word Matched it means in test results rather than in cosmetic looks. Whilst I endeavor to put tubes together from the same year and look the same, this is not always the case. I may have the same tube but from differing years matched up in test results, which means they may cosmetically or internally look a little different.. The numbers/letters in parentheses are Equivalents put in to help people to find the correct tube.
If it does not say MATCHED then please do not consider them to be such. If you need to know the test results that I get then please just ask. I do not publish test results in the listing as what I get, and what someone else might get can be different.I use a TV7/U military spec Tester which is calibrated. I have 4 of these machines and all display a slightly differing value if I test the same tube, as two testers are never the same. So this shows what I get, and what you get may be slightly different. I also sometimes use a Hickok 752 for testing. If I state any values they are for a guide only. All tubes have passed the Gas and short tests. Rectifiers and Diode tubes do not have Transconductance values.
Please have a look at the pictures for the cosmetic condition. I take lots of pictures so you can see cosmetics. Use the zoom function and have a good look. It is impossible to describe every scratch, scuff or mark.So take a good look. That is what they are there for. We check and describe the as much of the functionality as we can. If not Fully tested , then items are not tested to the full extent and may have something wrong that I have not discovered.
If Fully tested then that is what they are. IF YOU'RE UNHAPPY WITH AN ITEM.. I make mistakes once in a while.
I try to resolve any issue to both our best interests. GRADING OF CD's and RECORDS. What do the GRADING MEAN? NEW - Unopened and brand new, sealed.Like NEW - Used but no obvious signs of use. (May be very light Scratching but not noticeable) (or the Case/Cover may be Scuffed a little).
EXCELLENT- Very light ware to both the CD / Record or CASE/ Cover. Very GOOD PLUS - USED, Some Light Scratching to either the case or CD/Record. Light scratching to the case/ Cover. Very GOOD - USED Light Scratching to both the Case and CD/Record. Cover is in Good condition but has normal wear and tear.May jump or you will hear scratching on the record. Or if this is in grading is in regard to the case/Cover then there may be cracks in the case or the cover is Torn , or has rips along its edges or scuffed quite badly. Heavy scratching to the disc. In regards to the case or cover, then the case/ Cover is just holding itself together. In regards to the case/ Cover then this grading means the case or sleeve is badly torn, scuffed, cracked and is falling apart.
So some items that I may describe as Fair... May be good or above. It is just my opinion and I would rather paint a bleaker picture of something rather than saying it is better than it is.
If in the main body of my listing I sell something AS IS. This means That I have tested something NOT TO ITS FULL EXTENT. Therefore I cannot be 100% sure of its working ability when you get it.Then I have not test it. Or have only gone so far to test it.
This is a process, and it takes time. Please be patient enough for this process. Of the post office, or carrier. They will normally want to see the item AND PACKING.
