Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

RE: Viking anyone?

Per my memory of the consumer decks (which most of them were), they used "felt like" pressure pads to push the tape up against the heads when playing/recording. Non starter today.

Did make an impressive looking large reel, 15ips, rack mounted "pro deck" that I saw in a high school AV setup.
