The Webster Chicago Corporation was a maker of electronic equipment in Chicago, Illinois and was a leading manufacturer of both wire recorders and reel-to-reel tape recorders.

Wire recording or magnetic wire recording was the first magnetic recording technology, an analog type of audio storage in which a magnetic recording is made on a thin steel wire. The wire is pulled rapidly across a recording head which magnetizes each point along the wire in accordance with the intensity and polarity of the electrical audio signal being supplied to the recording head at that instant.

Important note: All Electrical goods are hired as none working props. Rewiring of electrical goods can be requested as they may need to be re wired to comply with regulations if intended to use. Original Plugs must NOT be cut off.
