Over the last few years we’ve gradually built up our equipment inventory so we can now offer a wide range of audio and video transfers.
We’re very happy to offer all track formats and speeds of 1/4 inch reel to reel tape transfer.
15 inches per second (ips) and 7.5 ips speeds are normally transferred on, our pride and joy, one of two Studer A80’s. We also have a Tascam BR20 and several Revox A77’s for backup. The slower speeds and 4 track stereo formats are catered for by Teac and Sony machines.
30 ips, 15, 7.5 and 3.75 can also be transferred on our Sony APR 5003.
We take pride in making sure these machines are calibrated and cleaned before each transfer.
Quite often we receive tape in poor condition this is very often a result of splicing tape ‘drying out’ as it’s a bit like sellotape and the splices breaking as the tape is played.
We are able to splice and repair tape before transfer.
Prices are competitive but not published here as we’ve found each job is different and needs certain attentions that need to be quoted for on an individual basis. We are happy though to offer a assess / listen service as many customers don’t know what’s on their tapes and either don’t have a machine or their old machine is broken.
Recent work has included many valuable family history 5 inch reels. Remember tape is fragile, very susceptible to magnetic fields and doesn’t last forever. It’s worth transferring it or getting it transferred now to keep your memories safe.
