Re: Ordering new tape from Us recording.A few questions!

I'd say buy a calibration tape and set up the deck--or find some tech to do it for you since to do it best requires aligning the heads first, etc and its all somewhat involved. That's the only reliable way to get best performance from a deck. I'm not up on the particular formulations, but probably any good tape would sound fine with the deck properly set up for THAT tape.

OTOH, if you wanted to be lazy about it, just get the sampler of tapes and try them each, and you'll probably find one that matches the bias and eq for the deck as its set up now. You won't get absolute best performance that way, just something that sounds as good as luck will have it.
