This would be a great one. Well recorded and just edgy enough.

General Discussion / What happened?
« on: March 14, 2015, 02:20:27 PM »
This forum has been so quiet. Sometimes when scanning the post reply dates they jive with the last few days but are from 2012. The Show unread posts link has never shown me anything. Scrolling down the the bootom of the page gleans the latest post info anyway. I never saw an enormous amount of User and guests at any time but the posts have become farther apart than makes sence. Now I should not talk since I have not been able to listen to my tapes for some time. But, I see sales were brisk and not one review has surfaced. This was a tape lovers place as well as Tape Project forum with a good amount of info and qestions and answers. What happened?

Tape Project Albums - general / TP-024 on eBay
« on: December 22, 2014, 09:32:52 PM »
I was checking out the tapes on eBay when I found this I offered $250 explaining that an unopened copy currently could be bought for $300. The offer was automatically rejected.  This just seems ridiculous for a non out of print item.

Reel to Reel Tape Machines / Otari meter bulbs
« on: October 13, 2013, 06:12:44 PM »
I need 4 bulbs for an Otari MX5050 Mk.II-8. They look like AG3 fuse bulbs but measure 1 11/16" x 3/16"

which is 5/16" longer and 1/16" less around. Anyone have or know of a supplier?

Prerecorded Tapes / Reference Flux
« on: July 28, 2013, 04:22:10 PM »
On my Otari MX5050BII-2 I hear changes in the sound when moving the Ref Flux from Low to Med to High during play. So I had a bright tape on and switched to High to calm the tape. My question is what Flux do others find should be used for old 2 track and newer 4 track commercial tapes?

Prerecorded Tapes / Christmas tape play
« on: December 23, 2012, 09:31:12 PM »
Today is Xmas eve-eve. I have and played three tapes of the Nutcracker suite. But the one I've wanted to play for some time is the 5" A Christmas Greeting in Stereophonic Sound. It's an Ampex 2 track gift tape. Something you got from your ampex dealer as an extra or gift. Souds great and is in amazingly good shape, probably due to being played only a few times during Christmas.  Merry Christmas to all.

Raw Tape / ATR 1 mil?
« on: April 25, 2012, 04:35:14 PM »
If you are like me you know the value of 1 mil tape for it's recording time. And like to buy American when able. Then you may want to email Mike Spitz of ATR Magnetics to let him know you want him to make 1 mil tape.
