robomatic Tech: Tape Reel Turned White, Distorted Sound (7) RE: Tech: Tape Reel Turned White, Distorted Sound 02 May 21


I've dealt with old reel-to-reel tapes and the sticky shed phenomenon and may have written in about it a few years ago. This does not sound like that.

Some tape quality is better than others. I found that some very old tapes had lasted quite well and held their playability. And other brands not so much. This has also been true of my cassettes. The Sony and Maxell brands have held up well. There was a brand named 'Radiant' which was cheap when new and has not held up so well when old.
