A note about our Reel-to-Reel tape. Most of our tapes have already been recorded on. Some may include boxes and leaders intact, and some may not.
May or may not have usable labels. Boxes and / or reels may have extraneous labels and / or marking on them. We try and accurately note when they do, but neither are ever guaranteed as it's a tedious task inventorying those aspects on each tape.

Pre-Recorded 1/4" X 7", Normal Bias Reel-to-Reel tape. "Grab-bag" assortment of brands may, but not necessarily include Ampex, BASF, Irish, Kodak, Maxell, Realistic, Scotch / 3M, Sony, Soundcraft, TDK and others.
We have actually found that 'Normal' bias tape works best on the older decks such as the pre 1980 Akai's, Craigs, Crowns, Grundigs, Kenwoods, Pioneers, Realistics, Sansui's, Sony TC's, Tandbergs, Teacs, Telefunkens, etc. We have gotten some fine recordings using this tape, and due to the extreme 'retention' of high bias tape some times it is difficult to erase. These always seem to erase fine.
 
Most are at least 1800 feet and some with leaders intact and may or may not include individual box (often do). Most have been used and will have recordings on them.
Boxes and / or reels may have extraneous labels and / or marking on them. Reels may have blemishes / nicotine staining / dust etc. You will need to come up with your own labels as even if they are in the box, they likely aren't "sticky" anymore. Due to unpredictability of stocks we cannot "cherry pick" brands so they are always assorted. Plastic reels may be clear or black.
Will work on any 'head format', meaning 'quarter track', 'half-track', 'full-track', '4-track / '8-track' / 'multi-track', stereo or mono tape recorders / decks. Use a bulk eraser or will simply erase when new recordings are made on your deck (assuming your 'erase' is functioning).

Tape Materials Explained:
"Tensilized" - "Tensilized" is simply a process of pre-stretching tape to eliminate the potential problem of stretching on fast starts and stops. Naturally, this procedure adds somewhat to the cost of the tape infinitivally. All 'Polyester, Mylar and PVC tapes can be 'tensilized'.

"Polyester and Mylar" - Polyester and Mylar are essentially similar in composition. Mylar is the Dupont registered trade name. Polyester is considered the finest base material for recording tape because of it's extra strength and dimensionally stable characteristics. The extra strength of Polyester based tapes allows it's use in 0.5 mil (triple play) tapes. It is usually more expensive than acetate of PVC based tapes. The base material of a tape does not necessarily have any effect upon the quality of the surface coating or frequency response.

"Polyvinyl Chloride" (PVC) and Acetate - Acetate and PVC are dissimilar, but less costly tape base materials. Acetated and PVC are usually found in 1.5 and 1.0 mil tapes. Both materials are satisfactory for most recording purposes.

"MIL THICKNESS" - The thickness of a tape cross section in the most commonly used tapes is 1.5, 1.0 or 0.5 expressed in 'mils' (1.0 mil is 0.001" thick). The thicker the tape, the stronger it is, however, Polyester ("Mylar") is actually many times stronger than acetated; it's strength being required for 1.0 and especially the very fragile 0.5 mil thin tapes. Thickness has no relation to tape quality per se, except that the thinnest tapes are more susceptible to "print through".

Great tape for general purpose recording.

These are 2400' / 732 meters and .5 MIL 'Tensilized', and include individual, boxes with a plastic reel (while the model / formulation of tape may have remained consistent, the box graphics changed periodically and may differ from photos). More than enough length for about two LP's at 7.5ips (fast, consumer speed) for 120 minutes combined sides (240 minutes at 3.75ips). Pre-Recorded 1/4" X 7", Normal Bias Reel-to-Reel tape. Scotch / 3M 200-24, Tensilized Polyester base tapes.
We have actually found that 'Normal' bias tape works best on the older decks such as the pre 1980 Akai's, Craigs, Crowns, Grundigs, Kenwoods, Pioneers, Realistics, Sansui's, Sony TC's, Tandbergs, Teacs, Telefunkens, etc. We have gotten some fine recordings using this tape. These always seem to erase fine.

May not have leaders, but usually
include individual box. Most have been used and will have recordings on them.
Boxes and / or reels may have extraneous labels and / or marking on them. You will need to come up with your own labels. Typically, Clear, Plastic reels.
 Will work on any 'head format', meaning 'quarter track', 'half-track', 'full-track', '4-track / '8-track' / 'multi-track', stereo or mono.

An
interesting note found on the web @ http://tascamforums.com/index.php?showtopic=2964&mode=linearplus
"...Tom Scholz & Boston used Scotch 226 or die for tracks, 996 for mastering...Scotch 966/986 was an "improvement" on 226, but Scholz didn't like it so he stocked up on 226 before it was discontinued, and still uses it today.
A lot of the signature sounds that groups were identified with came form using various tapes on machines tuned for Ampex 456. The key was the way the other tapes sounded on a deck tweaked for 456. Tweaking the machine for another tape would change and maybe ruin the sound. The original Boston sound was best using Scotch 226 on a machine set for Ampex 456 tape."

Applications

NOS, Still Sealed 1/4" X 7" (18cm), Scotch / 3M 200-24, 2400 ft reel to reel tape. 13-Pack.
Great tape for general purpose recording.

These are 2400' / 732 meters and .5 MIL 'Tensilized', and include individual, boxes with a plastic reel. Each tape is more than enough length for about two LP's at 7.5ips (fast, consumer speed) for 120 minutes combined sides (240 minutes at 3.75ips). Pre-Recorded 1/4" X 7", Normal Bias Reel-to-Reel tape. Scotch / 3M 200-24, Tensilized Polyester base tapes.
We have actually found that 'Normal' bias tape works best on the older decks such as the pre 1980 Akai's, Craigs, Crowns, Grundigs, Kenwoods, Pioneers, Realistics, Sansui's, Sony TC's, Tandbergs, Teacs, Telefunkens, etc. We have gotten some fine recordings using this tape.

Clear,
Plastic reels.
 Will work on any 'head format', meaning 'quarter track', 'half-track', 'full-track', '4-track / '8-track' / 'multi-track', stereo or mono.
