The non-profit Museum of Magnetic Sound Recording established in 2012 to create a permanent public museum was dissolved December 31, 2017 due to lack of funding. This collection has now reverted back to a private collection which retained the name Museum of Magnetic Sound Recording and belongs to the Theophilus family who began the collection in 1999. All but a few of the reel tape recorders, microphones and memorabilia in this collection were originally purchased by the Theophilus family. When the non-profit Museum of Magnetic Sound Recording dissolved, the Theophilus family purchased (at FMV) several of the tape recorders that were donated to the non-profit. These were units that we wanted to preserve.
