Museum of Magnetic Sound Recording

We are a supporter of the Museum of Magnetic Sound Recording.  This is a newly formed non-profit museum that is dedicated to the  creation of a permanent home, open to the public, for the vintage recording collection of Theophilus/Phantom Productions, Inc.  This collection currently has more than 150 reel-to-reel tape recorders and hundreds of other items related to magnetic sound recording.

The museum is working on several projects in addition to preserving the vintage recording devices.  They include documenting the persons who invented and manufactured the recording devices and providing education about sound recording technology.  The museum  web site already has over 12,000 photos and documents about sound recording and more is being added daily.

To make this vintage recording museum viable, a significant goal of the museum is to incorporate other media collections in the areas of broadcast, film, music, publishing, photography, video games and video production, in order to make the museum a world class destination for Austin, Texas.
