"Papillon" And "Tourbillon"

Extraordinary Tape Decks by Metaxas & Sins

Metaxas & Sins used the High End 2022 to show the two reel-to-reel tape recorders "Papillon" and "Tourbillon", both coming in a rather extravagant design.

The larger one is called Papillon, while the smaller model is named Tourbillon. Both are visually and structurally inspired by the art of watchmaking, have three speeds (19/38/76 cm/s.) and can be ordered with different heads.

Electronics specialist Kostas Metaxas includes high-end input and output amplifiers in his devices and ensured buttery-smooth, fluid operation for the drive control. All parts are handmade, and the axles come from a specialist manufacturer in Switzerland. Japanese carbon coils are also available in a variety of sizes.

As playback-only machines, they cost 50,000 and 30,000 euros. If a recording branch is section, 6000 euros are added to that in both cases.
