    Question

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Is blank 1/4" recording tape still available for reel-to-reel machines? I may be buying an old Teac unit but I don't remember seeing blank tape available anymore...but I haven't exactly been looking for it either. Where should I be looking?

    It's still available. Just have to find where. Look in the yellow pages under audio/video, or recording.

    There use to be a great store in Ottawa where I use to buy 1/2" tape. They had everything.

    I'm sure such a place exists in your area.

    Don't mean to bum anybody out, but Radio Shack still has it and they'll order it for you if they're out...this is a small town, and it beats hell out of driving miles to a city to pay twice the price....my old teac 3340 eats tape like crazy...gibs

    I have had very poor results with Radio Shack 1/4" tape. I would recommend ordering some Ampex or 3M from "Full Compass" or any other Professional Sound company. The last 1/4" tape I bought was a few years ago at E.A.R Pro Audio in Phoenix AZ. They will ship any where...

    Sincerely;

    Guess I've just been lucky about the Radshak tape...no, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to try to re-do Sgt. Peppers with it...but if you need a tape fix real fast it's a viable alternative for home taping while you're waiting for the higher quality to arrive....gibs

    Avoid RADIO SHACK?
    Well I would not go THAT far! Radio Shack has saved me in a pinch.... When all the other Music stores are closed, 8:00 PM on a Saturday night and you need some solder and speaker wire...or a 1/4" jack to fix your guitar. Someday you might just thank God that there's a Radio Shack a few miles away!

    Sincerely;

    Dom Franco
