Product Description

Tascam M-216 8-channel mixer for sale.

Serviced including recapping of power supply and cleaning of all pots, sliders and switches. Defective parts are replaced with new where possible or original spec parts from another donor mixer.

Sound-wise these are, as you might expect from their era and high quality manufacture, great. Warmth and character are instantly added to whatever you put through, the overdriven sound is lovely, and the 4-band EQ gives excellent control.

See photos of the top and rear panels for information on the functions and connections available.

Some crackly may be possible after a period of not being used but this should clear.

NOTE: All the XLR outputs on these are set up for US pin configuration and cannot be switched. For UK/EU use you will need six XLR pin hot switchers. Let us know if you need assistance sourcing these. They are not expensive.

DIRECT OUT MOD: Modified with Direct Outs on the first 8 channels. The 8x Tape In RCA sockets have been be replaced with 1/4″ jack sockets for the outputs. They’re post-fader (so post Pre/EQ), effectively parallel to the pan pot and effect bus control. This means you get the benefit of the level off the post fader op-amp – less likely to affect the overall bus output, and a more user friendly level out of the direct outs. Plus, you get the bonus of being able to drive both the Pre op-amp, and the Bus op-amp  to get a harder driven signal if that’s what you’re into… (It’s also where the M-30 and Model 3’s direct out comes from, so will react similarly).


In excellent overall condition with only very minor wear to the face. The end cheeks are very clean - the veneer on the very bottom is slightly damaged Please see photos or get in touch if you require more information on condition.

Voltage Information

100v Japanese model - it will run on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use. A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU. We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.


For sales in UK the price will include 20% VAT. Buyers elsewhere may incur VAT or other local taxes on import.
