    Default Vintage Audio Cassettes

    Anyone know how much Fuji FR- I Super Cassettes tend to go for when they surface..

    I know you might be saying yeh ok Type I but these were no normal Type I.. I actually thought they were one of the best blanks ever made back in the 80's..

    I am curious how they have stood the test of time . Was it the content that deteriorated or the tape itself?

    You lost me Anto regarding deterioration!

    I once tested one of these they were amazing in the fact that you could record at a far higher lever than you could a general Type 1 before overload distortion & tape hiss was really low without NR..

    The issues i generally have with tapes are

    Type 1: Good bass but a bit dull elsewhere
    Type 2: Not so good bass as Type 1 but elsewhere better
    Type 3: Well pretend never existed
    Type 4: Seems too bright and unbalanced to my ears..

    Those Fugi FR-1S' gave me the best of Type 1&2 all packed into one..

    Have you got a TDK MA-R or MA-XG? Don't really need one; just always fancied owning one!

    Those Die-cast 'MA-R' Metals from the 80's were awesome, mega quiet on wind.. i detected no difference in sound from the standard 'MA'.. I bought one of those Heavy metals i think they were about a fiver.. NOS are just crazy money.. What i loved most about them were the little green Record protection tabs that you could just remove & replace.
