    I was gonna say, getting into tape has been like a drug addiction except drugs are way cheaper what are these running price-wise?

      In my case I blame Myles he's the enabler...

    I actually cut this out of my Doshi review.

    To paraphrase:

    Gone are the days where scarcity caused tapeheads grabbed any old tape. Tapeheads are because of the abundance of new releases getting far pickier in what they buy and are opting for the best sound/performance available. That in turn is driving up the quality of new tapes too.

      Wow...Binaural recording. Microphones spaced seven inches to a foot apart with using two classic U47 mics.

      on these mics, the number signifies the year manufactured by Telefunken. The U47 and the U50 are very priceless units to have now. Plus Frank Sinatra loved his U47 while recording at Capitol.
