Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

I got all I'll ever need

I record about twelve 90 minute metal cassettes per year, and at 63, I figured if lucky, I'd need enough for 20 years, so a few years ago I started buying them new and used on eBay. Now I have the 240 needed and more, and now I only buy the rare bargains. It got to where the only reasonable prices were on used bulk, and even then, about $7-$10 a piece. My favorite is Maxell MX-S 90. I prefer to re-record on the used ones because sealed ones are so expensive, sound quality is the same, and when I'm really old, I'll still have the pleasure of unwrapping a new one.
