I've seen this tape path upgrade kit maybe 2-3 years ago while looking at the pictures in the tape project web site, especially the bearings and the ceramic flanges were impressed me . When I have asked if I can buy at that time I was informed that they are only available for tape project members machines. Those days I had also problem with the textile breakpads and solved this problem replacing the textile breakpads with leather ones adjusted the tension with a spring scale according to the service manual and somebody from bottlehead told me leather pads can be useful. Up to now I am happy with the breaks.

In June I saw that the upgrade kit is on sale and on 18.June.2012 I have ordered a tape path upgrade kit for my Technics RS1500. I am still waiting for the shipment. I also sent an email and asked a question about shipping (I am living in Turkey and want to know how to pay the shipping cost) but they didnot reply me up to now.

Best regards

Hi Ural,

We realized yesterday that somehow your order was missed that last time we packed those kits. I am very sorry! I packed up the parts last night before leaving the office and they will ship out today. Once again, my apologies for missing the order. Eileen planned to send you an apology and let you know we were taking care of you when she got into the office this morning. Better yet, we will send a tracking number as well!
