I found my grandpa's old Sampson reel to reel deck. When I plug it in, there is no "magic smoke" or any weird sounds. It seems to power up just fine.\n\nHowever, whenever I press play, the tape reel or tape hub either doesn't move or (when touched) moves extremely slowly and then freezes up. \n\nI was wondering how to find a repair shop to work on this? \n\nI know it may not be worth much, but for sentimental value\/listening to some old tapes I found with it, I would love to get this up and running. This is run with valves\/tubes.\n\nI live kind of nearish to the Raleigh\/Cary area of NC. I can make a drive into town if there is a good repair place locally. However, if there is an online repair store that you would trust, please let me know!
