Yeah, I know, a photo would help.
I bought six 10 1/2" reels of Ampex tape cheap on eBay. All are full of extremely well recorded disco music, or were until i bulk-erased them. There is nothing on the box to indicate WHICH Ampex tape type they are. All it says on the front is:
Precision Magnetic tape.
Not even whether it's 1 mil or 1 1/2 mil. (It's the former). Grey box with blue lettering on front.
Thank heaven it's not back-coated.
The reel material is unmarked grey plastic. The backside doesn't have any identifying info either. Or the spine, which simply says AMPEX.
It was definitely worth the $47 I paid for the 6 reels, but I'm just a little puzzled. TIA for any thoughts.
