Slow Dance on Reel-to-Reel

This was another prompt from Cuckoo, this time to use bad gear. I focused on this old reel-to-reel that is barely holding on. I was hoping to do an ambient washy manual tape manipulation, but it’s too broken even for that. Still, the built in preamps and speakers are gnarly in a good way. In the spirit of the challenge, I also used my very weird partscaster strat with almost unusable microphonic pickups, plus no fancy mics or preamps.
