Matt D and DIO21:
I went to heaven and back today.
A friend of a friend of a friend of mine hosted a Super Bowl party at his recording studio here in San Francisco. This guy had about 12 different reel to reel decks including two Studer 2” tape decks, 1” real decks and even a couple of quarter inch real decks.
Also this guy had an arsenal of fine vintage analog keyboards. Fender Rhodes, Honner Clavinet, Hammond B3
organ, Jupiter, Mini Moog, Player piano, Honky-tonk piano and mellotron. Oh and of course a drum set, bass & electric guitars with amps and all.
Let’s just say I’ll be hanging out there more often and with bring my bass over to jam with those guys as well as make my own Original Master Recordings of other local bands on quarter inch reel to reel tape.
Well I am glad that Matt D covered the reel to reel aspect thoroughly.
Let’s not forget 8track repair and splicing.
God forbid you end up on a long road trip in your 1976 Mercury Montego MX
Brougham and your quadraphonic 8track of Deep Purple ‘Machine Head’ breaks at the splice due to the adhesive of the sensing foil weakens.
Anyhow, here are some quick & easy steps in restoring the longetivity of your 8track tapes.

This gives detailed information on how to repair RCA, Warner Brothers and the infamous Lear Jet carts.
Sorry my friend but you are wrong.
Just look at it this way;
Analog has given us the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, RUSH, Black Sabbath, Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire, James Brown and The Moody Blues.
Digital has given us Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Creed, Toby Keith, 50 Cent, Emenim and Nellie.
You be the judge.
