Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

RE: Vinyl is back with a vengance. Why not tape?

I think the main impediment is cost. Blank tape prices have soared, reel prices have soared. Supplies and supply makers have dwindled. I attempted about 10 years ago to get back into tape, but lost interest rather quickly. I've been selling off most of my cassette gear, 8track gear, and reel gear. Just isn't worth the the hassle to me anymore. These days I backup my favorite LPs with used CDs I can usually find them for a few bucks or less. Much easier to store and deal with than tape. And they don't self destruct like tapes can.
