Master Quality Reel To Reel Tape!
Exceptional Audiophile Sound! This Is As Close To The Original Master As You Will Get!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

This Pure Reference Reel To Reel contains high-quality recordings as examples of 8 different types of tonal sounds including Swing Band, Saxophone, Harp, Soprano, Piano, Organ, Guitar, and Drum Kit.

The tracks on the reference demonstration tape have all been recorded with a pair of vintage valve U47 microphones in natural acoustics except for a few tracks which have been marked. Those were recorded Binaurally which can also be played on loudspeakers, therefore there are no compatibility issues. All of them have been recorded to the highest possible standard, hence the title "Reference Tape".

**It is standard practice in all recording studios to keep the tape "tail out". This reduces "pre-echo" and it means that the tape should be placed on the right hand side of the recorder, re-wound and then played.
