I have a new 1/2" Zonal tape I don't need...
« on: December 04, 2020, 08:39:41 AM »
Hi tapeheads..

I'm probably breaking all the forum rules here but I thought I'd try this section first since it seems we are a limited bunch..

I have 1 x brand new unused 1/2" Zonal 675 tape + 1 1/2" Zonal 675 reel only, no tape..

The 1/4" Zonal's I use are fantastic tapes, I have no reason to believe this would be any worse, they do not suffer from SSS and no mold..

Long story short I tried something and failed, anyone out there with a half inch machine needing these units, we can chat about pricing or W.H.Y privately..??

Two of the best sounding machines that can use 1/2" 2-track format at 30 IPS:

Studer A820 and ATR102. The Otari MTR-15 is another one. Must of course be fitted with 1/2" head stack and tape guides.

Thanks Marco. I have to admit, the best sound from an Otari MX5050-B2II that I've ever heard. You tape machines are impeccable and your restoration skills are equally impressive.

Marius, you came all the way and didn't fetch your speaker boxes. Time is running low...
