Mine were safely stored in a drawer below the av unit, so I suspect it’s more a question of potential bleed thru for mine.
I only sell things I can feel confident buyers will be quite happy about. I always offer unconditional refunds on anything I sell.
1 r2r tape box was destroyed (so bad it seemed purposely) by PO (tape lived). One early one I sold, the heavy tape inside moved and broke a corner of the box, I learned to put peanuts in the corners to prevent that. 2 refunds out of around 150 tapes sold, many LPs sold, some equipment sold.
I got tired of only making 3 or 4 dollars for the fairly common LP’s on ebay. Then inherited 4,000, sorted, gave many to friends, including 4 new friends from audiogon. Then sold a few thousand to 4 dealers who came here.
I might get back to selling stuff after the holidays.
ATR Magnetics makes and sells cassettes here in the US. They are selling off their Ampex ATR service division- there is an announcement about that on their home page- don't be put off by it.
Thanks for the input atmasphere.
I just yesterday received a nice vintage Harman Kardon TD 4800 cassette deck.
I've wanted one for years and finally scored it. This deck sounds SWEET, even with a 40 year old prerecorded tape.
I've been researching the best types of blank tapes to buy. Of course there's many opinions and most differ. One thing I have learned is that a cobalt tape is of very high quality. I'll definitely try out the ATR offerings.
I just deleted my message that says Lunchbox Audio is out of stock on the ATR Cobalt Gold Series blank cassettes.
After I placed my order for two 5 packs, they notified me that they only had 4 blanks in stock. Apparently when they picked the order they found that they had more in stock than their inventory list showed. How many more? I don't know. They were able to fulfill my original order of two 5 packs though.
