Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

Me too, junfortunately.

Almost all the commercial RTR tapes -- mostly jazz --I used to buy on Ebay for under 10 bucks are now in the $50-60 range, and up. Same goes for the good (Maxell) used tape. And more and more "safety master" dubs are selling for three figures. (Confession: I've bought a couple that were actually worth it). Same thing goes for the new-production stuff, and with raw tape from the few still-active producers going for increasingly serious money, the bars to newbie entry are pretty steep.

('Course you can still find bargains if you're patient and lucky)

EDIT: Unfortunate about junfortunately, but you can't edit a subject line :-)
