Mod Revox A77 low speed to hi speed

Hi everyone

I have just bought an old Revox A77 in great shape. It is the low speed model so it has 3 3/4 and 7 1/2 speed. Do you know if it is possible to mod it so it can do 7 1/2 and 15 instead? I only found one mod out there on the interknot to do this, but sadly it won't work if you live in Europe... which I do
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for a great forum!

Kind regards

Studer/Revox used the same motor for all A77s. What they did was to use a different capstan shaft. Last time I talked with them, the higher speed shaft was $200+ US. That's the only mod I am aware of.
