I was searching for a 1st generation TDK SA and found some at eBay from a trusted seller. I bought one and I was very happy… until it arrived and I opened it. I realized then that it was a fake tape. A rare clone 1st gen TDK SA.

Are you curious? Please see this photos:

Apart from the obvious misalignment of the label, there are other clear signs of low quality:

  • the scratches in the shell
  • some imperfections in the shell
  • Diferences in surface finish¬†between this and the original one.
  • Misalignment in the printed color stripes and other details of the J-card.

After complaining, the seller agreed to refund the money when I sent back the tape. But to my surprise, he is still selling this ones without any advice of their current condition and ‘story’… so be careful if you want a ‘vintage’ SA…
