It’s not a thorough review but there’s the main question: how well -or not- do they perform? Let’s check it out.

And when I say new I mean magnetic tape being manufactured these days, not just old stock in new shells. Looking at the Ferromaster there are a couple of things that I notice. First of all, the lack […]

Yes, they finally did it. I’ve posted here the news that they were working on releasing a brand new tape nowadays. Not just a cassette shell (with the same tape), but a brand new magnetic tape. In fact, they’ve said nothing about the shell. The new tape is called FerroMaster C456 and it’s the result […]

I wanted to start testing some cassettes beside my reviews of walkmans and decks. There’s been some activity in the magnetic tape world and it seems we will see some good news very soon, coming from NAC and RTM. So, why not testing what the NAC is actually selling? I’ve contacted them and they sent […]

This saturday I’ve been at Cassette Culture, the very first market for small releases in cassette. See my first post about that. I’ve been CJ’ing for an hour and a half and it was a lot of fun, though it was more like ambient music rather than loud music for dancing. These small labels were selling mostly […]

I recently published a quick note about De Bandjesfabriek that is preparing to sell this new tape in the Nederlands.

Well, I bet so! While browsing information about the Munich Hi-End show I found two companies that are releasing new albums in tape: Entertape and Hemiolia. The former is only releasing them in reel tapes but the latter is doing it with cassettes. And here comes the interesting thing… I’ve seen that they released an album called A PORTRAIT OF […]

I’ve recently found an interesting store at eBay from a chap that has hundreds of -mainly- sealed tapes for sale: dr Bo. I was interested in many of them to complete my collection. Some are pretty rare and difficult to find, so I went and buy some. The prices aren’t cheap, even for less rare tapes […]
