The first "Densuke" recorder for cassettes, complete with a shoulder strap. Aimed squarely at the growing number of live-recording enthusiasts, it continued in the acclaimed tradition of Densuke recorders. The TC-2850SD offered exceptional recording fidelity to go, in a brown and silver metal case. Controls were designed to more professional standards, and this is apparent in the buttons and level meters. Operating the switches felt like toggling high-end levers. What made this recorder a hit was its combination of durable construction and great usability.
