    Hank Williams, Sr. Reel to Reel Tape Recorder. This Eicor Model 15 (serial # 27976) Reel to Reel Tape Recorder came directly from the Country Music Wax Museum in Nashville. The accompanying card that described the recorder was on display at the museum and says, "Hank Williams, Sr. originally owned and recorded on this recorder, which later was given to Hank Snow by Audrey Williams." Our research has shown that the serial number places the date of origin of this machine at 1951, and we also know that Hank Snow made multiple donations of his personal property to the Country Wax Museum. History also tells us that Snow was a personal friend of Hank's widow, Audrey. Given this documentation, and also given that this machine appears to have been well taken care of over the years, makes it quite possibly a provocative treasure for any Country music collector.
