… anyone have any for sale? Ideally looking for NOS, but reality is what it is so used is also alright.
Okay. And for you I would spelunk if you get desperate. I respect your interest in 206/207. It’s stood the test of time pretty well, although there are some limited reports of sticky 206/207. I have some NOS reels of 1” 206, and used reels of 2” 206…how cool is that. Hoping it’s A-OK. On a “modern” machine or on a pro vintage machine you could smash the sh!t outta +3 206 and get some heavy saturation…what machine are you looking to roll the 206/207 on, Donny?LOL I may hit you up if I get desperate
Yep that was me and I did find one, not from that post though. It was via a vintage audio dealer on Instagram of all places. He has a stash of serious gear in LA. So it’s gonna need to be set up and gone through etc, then transported up here to Oakland. Hopefully the storms will be done by that time, fingers crossedRight. That’s why I mentioned the 1” and 2” I have. I feel like it’s pretty rare.
Wait…did I see a post from you on the Scully Yahoo group? Was that you looking for a 280-4? And you found one?
Oh I know…Beck, The Ghost of FM, miss those guys…don’t know if cjacek and A Reel Person are still lurking or gone. Glad for the regulars we have here and old days folks like you. I’m probably stupid enough to try and climb over the gear hoard tonight even though somehow some whiskey fell down my throat just to verify what old 1/2” Scotch is in the collection. The only 1/2” machine I have here is a Tascam 58 but I still have all that Quantegy 456 I bought from you, which is really the right tape for that machine. Stay tuned.… also worth noting- remember Beck from this forum way back? If I recall, he sold me two NOS reels of Scotch 207 for the Scully 4-track I had, back in 2012. Those were the days.
Scotch 202/203 is actually my favorite tape, but it’s a bit fragile at this point. I’ve always used it for mixdown, but for multi I found 206/207 to have some of that sound but with better stability and running smoother for so many runs back & forth with the backcoating.
I have a reel of that still sealed! And it's already on a pretty Scotch precision reel. Bought off eBay years ago for some ridiculous low price. the guy had a bunch more and i snagged only one right as the auction ended. The rest didn't sell but he didn't relist!
