The Kudelski Nagra III Reel to Reel Tape Recorder was a device used by Abby Yates and Jillian Holtzmann in the 2016 movie.

HistoryEdit

When Erin Gilbert first visited Abby, and Holtzmann, in the Paranormal Studies Laboratory at Kenneth P. Higgins Institute, the women played a gag on Erin by claiming to have a audio recording of EVP. Erin interrupted Holtzmann and told her she knew what it meant but none were ever substantiated. Annoyed by her cockiness, Abby played along and they told Erin a story about how they spent eight nights at the Chelsea Hotel a few months ago then found something when they reviewed their tapes.[1] Abby started a tape on the Kudelski Nagra III Reel to Reel Tape Recorder. Holtzmann and Abby leaned in to listen. Erin approached and suddenly a recorded fart sound played. Abby mocked her with a spooky "ooo" noise while Holtzmann laughed. They realized Erin was the first to come right over to the recorder nor put their face so close.[2][3] Abby was concerned when Holtzmann asked if it was more or less disgusting if the noise came from the front.[4]

Some time after Rowan North was defeated, Patty Tolan, headphones on, listened to a tape on the recorder. Patty heard something interesting. Erin walked over between Abby and Patty. She asked Patty if she got something. Abby rested her chin on her left palm. Patty revealed she heard something really weird and asked them what's "Zuul." Everyone was silent. Erin and Abby couldn't think of anything and both shook their heads.

TriviaEdit

  • Kudelski Nagra III Reel to Reel Tape Recorder is a real world audio recorder. The recorder was produced by Kudelski SA.[5]
  • Before Patty says "Huh," a snippet of the chorus from "Saw It Coming" can be heard briefly.
