Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Does sound get produced by the tape recorder in question? even if it is shrill and too fast?

What is '90 mph sound'? is that what I just described, shrill and fast?

Are you sure the right voltage is being applied to it? too high a voltage could produce shrill fast playback, perhaps.
