They're back!

And it's back in stock too.

Will be restocking several other titles over the coming weeks as well.

It's still slow. But we have managed to ship out the replacement boxes to a few of you.

All of you that received albums in plain white boxes, your replacement boxes are all here, all have had the spine labels added and they look good. We are not exactly allowed to re-open, but it looks like that will come soon. All of you will get your boxes.

We appreciate your patience. Enjoy the tapes in the meantime, and stay safe and healthy.

We have the boxes in our possession.

But we're still on lockdown. There's no way to put a firm date on it, but as soon as we are able to return to work we will be getting everyone's replacement boxes sent. Then we'll be adding more of our existing catalog into inventory, and eventually releasing new titles. You'll hear about all of it here, and we'll send an occasional email newsletter as well.

Everyone in the state of California is now required to stay home. We are honoring this, so production and shipping are on hold.

The shipment of new boxes is on its way to us. Assuming that the ports are working when the ship arrives, and assuming the lockdown is eased so that we can receive the order and start shipping the replacement boxes to customers, we anticipate they will be going out in the middle of April.

I'll post updates as things develop. Stay safe, everyone.

This is a kind of a funny situation we find ourselves in. We have lots of tape albums duped and we'd like to sell them to you. But we are out of boxes. Our original box supplier retired and closed his business, so we have been working for months with a new supplier. We expect to be fully supplied with boxes in early April.

In the meantime we have been offering to sell albums in plain white boxes, with the nice box to follow once the shipment shows up here.

At the moment we have stock on the following albums as long as you are OK with getting your album now and the proper box in April:

Bill Evans Trio
Linda Ronstadt
Thelonious Monk
Jimmy Smith
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Lee Morgan
Nat King Cole and George Shearing
John Lee Hooker and Canned Heat
Jerry Garcia and David Grisman
Doc and Merle Watson

The elves are hard at work making the other titles too, so if  you are waiting for one that isn't on this list, make sure you have signed up for an email notification when it's back in stock. We'll be adding albums back into inventory regularly.

Once we have a proper supply of boxes we will also release a couple of new titles we have in the wings.

I can't be sure, but it seems like the sound of this machine has been improved with the new switch.  I suspect that there's a much better connection with the playback tape heads.

I can believe that. It's the point where the signal level is most delicate, a point where you want robust connections.

You've inspired me to go in and hardwire that connection on the one headstack I've got with just one playback head.

Thanks for updating us.

Tape Project Albums - general / Brother Thelonious is back among us
« on: June 20, 2019, 04:10:30 PM »
Thelonious Monk, TP-013, Brilliant Corners is on the shelf, ready to ship.

It's good to have you back, Brother.

(In case you got to this page via search engine and are wondering what the heck this is about: No we don't sell Brother Thelonious Belgian Style Ale, that fine libation from the folks at North Coast Brewing. But we do recommend it. If you haven't tried it, get thee to your favorite fine brew purveyor and lay in a supply.)
