Portable/Component Players

We are trying to give you the whole 8-track experience here at Kate's Track Shack! So if you're looking for a player, we're here to help you out!

We just bought a great collection of players from our friend Dan Jobin. Dan has worked with players since he as a young lad in California. He's done a lot of player repair work for us in the past. He is about to be a new daddy and will be focusing his time with his family! Be watching for more players to come up for sale in the near future. Some of these are very unusual and hard to find players.


Unless otherwise stated, all of the players we are putting up have been refurbished and are priced accordingly. We will offer a 30 day warranty on all players.* If you have a problem with your player after you receive it, please let us know so we can send you a RA form to send back with the player.

We are not responsible for tape jams/failures. If you're buying a player, you need to make sure that your tapes have been tuned-up first (new metallic splice/pad) before playing them in your player. We sell all of the repair supplies you might need to do it yourself or we offer this service as well.

Also, not all the players are going to look pristine and beautiful, but they all will be playable (again, unless otherwise stated). We'll try to clean them up and make them as beautiful as possible. But, unless the guy I spoke with last year has got his patent, I don't think they're making 8-track players anymore.

You can click on any of the photos to see enlarged photos of the players. I'm not a great photographer, so please don't judge! ;) Some may show reflections of me taking pics! Also, the white paper you see on the players is for our identification and won't be on the player when it ships.

When we figure s/h for the players, your total will include insurance for the the cost of the player. Most Priority packages come with free $50 insurance but anything over that will require the additional insurance.

Here's what we have right now:

Great sounding player! Fast forward works, but it uses a mechanical system to move the belt to a different pulley. This is not foolproof, and it sometimes will work or not.

Plug into front speakers for stereo. $100 + S/H*
