Hello everyone,
I recently bought a Sony super 8 sound recorder model 532-TC800B made by the "Super 8 Sound company"back in the 70's from what I've read this was the first dual system sound system marketed for S8 film shooting. The company actually has morphed into Pro8 and is still in business. Here is a link about this recorder for anyone that is interested
Anyway my problem is this : I want to use this machine with the 1/f contact switch method (the flash sync socket on the camera) but I need to find some super 8
fullcoat tape for the recorder for it to function like that (its basically just reel to reel tape with sprocket holes punched into it the same as super 8 film.
Or possibly have any that you'd be willing to sell ?
There isn't much I can with this recorder to use for sync sound without the fullcoat, and I'd really REALLY like to get this system working.
Keeping my fingers crossed that someone out there knows where to find some.

Hello Doug, I have quite a lot of Fullcoat that I purchased from Super 8 Sound back in my production days.

I'd be happy to share if you contact me.

Hey Doug, I'm looking to purchase or rent a Super 8 Sound Recorder. Would you have any interest in doing either with yours?

Doug, are you still out there?

I just posted the message below at;f=3;t=002665#000010.

Let me know if you are interested.


I have at least 800 feet of Super 8 Sound Fullcoat but sold the recorder/player long ago.

I would be happy to trade the fullcoat for an audio transfer of whatever is on these reels.

Please let me know if you have a recorder/player and are interested.

Thank you,
