I recently bought a quantity of commercial quadraphonic reel to reel tapes. Some of the lot I already own, and a few are not to my taste. I am not much of a folk music fan, but this tape has some excellent surround effects ... very discrete, with excellent analog sound quality. It has been play-tested on two different quad reel decks, and works as it should. I rated it as 'Very Good Plus' mainly due to its age.
Songs include Woody Guthrie's "Gypsy Davy" and "Ramblin' Round"; Bob Dylan's "Gates of Eden"; Arlo's "Week on the Rag", "Uncle Jeff", "Last Train", "Cowboy Song", and "Cooper's Lament", and five others ... "Farrell O'Gara", "This Troubled Mind of Mine", Miss the Mississippi and You", "Lovesick Blues", and "Sailor's Bonnett".
You can see in the second photo that someone has written "108" on the reel label in Magic Marker. In the third photo you can see a small tape tear on the top left-hand corner of the back of the box and an edge-split on the bottom corner. I will be posting other Q4 reels after I have had the chance to play-test them, but please don't write and ask for a list. I won't be selling any until I am sure that they play correctly.
If you are inexperienced with discrete quad reels, please note that all Q4 reels must be placed on the right (take-up) reel table and then rewound onto an empty take-up reel on the left (supply) reel table, then played back onto its original reel. See the first photo. This is done to avoid storing reels tightly-packed in fast-wind condition.
Postage (with tracking and insurance) will be a flat-rate of $15 within Canada. Payment by Interac Direct money transfer. Sorry, no PayPal, and no international sales. As always, local pickup and cash payment is welcome and encouraged. I will also consider a local trade for another commercial quad reel tape. Thanks for looking.
