    I always thought Maxell should have taken advantage of the killer prices their new old stock reel to reel tapes goes for on eBay by reintroducing their UD line. Yeah, I'll sign that petition and I hope Maxell is smart enough to realize the profits it can still make on those tapes. It's crazy how much in demand those things are right now and have been for years. Just look at ended prices for sealed and used product. I bet they go for more now than Maxell's original MSRP.

    Good stuff.

    Guys, please sign the petition. We can use all the help we can get. It can be argued that Maxell UD-35 (and its variants) has the best balance of sound, reliability and longevity of any 1/4" tape out-there. It just lasts and lasts.... I would probably trust my final mixes which I can store on this tape than any others.

    Tapeheads is looking to get at least 500 signatures by February 2011 when the petition will be presented to Maxell. I'm hoping 1000 signatures can be achieved.

    I think you'll have no trouble at all getting those signatures.
    I love those old Maxell tape machines.
    We did some great live recordings with the band using those machines back in the 80's.
    I added my name.

    I put my name on the list.
    The interface said to use "Windows XP or higher"...
