Our pinch rollers for SONY TC-C models meet the specifications of the original brand and are factory fresh. The original brand no longer makes these pinch rollers. Any of the original manufacturer stock would be too old to sell now as rubber deteriorates over time.
Before you install the new pinch roller please clean the entire belt path surface of pinch rollers. This will promote optimum pinch rollers performance. We recommend using rubbing alcohol or isopropyl.
