Meanwhile, I'll be laughing on my way to the bank. For example, if I sold my Mastersound copy of WYWH that I bought many years ago for about $20.00, it would pull $200+ today with no problem. The same CD in your hands would fetch nada. :lol: :lol: :lol:

That is funny because I actually live near where that was filmed, just a few miles a way.
That river flows into the Tugaloo and then behind my house.
It is one of the top whitewater tourist things, and of course fly fishing.

Me too Ed. I buy stuff and use it up. I don't get all gay about it.

To that end, CDs are less trouble to make than Cassettes, and you can burn several as they are very cheap by comparison.

I believe the cassettes this guy is selling are nothing like the junk I am used to though. Can you burn metal tapes with any cassette recorder? I still have a good one. Maybe I need some metal cassettes. Where do you buy them? Will they play in my 1995 truck, don't have CD there and play old cassettes.

I think the Mini Disc was the best of both worlds.
Easy to work with, great sound, and hard to damage. Unfortunately, only me and a few guys in Japan felt that way - :lol: :lol:
Well unless you have a really old deck it should have a Type IV setting to record. I'm not one much for metal tapes. I like a good type II better. Every one says you get more clarity out of a metal tape. I never use NR and I use type IIs mostly. If it were me I wouldn't use a metal tape in a truck. I would go for a type II.

I hope they aren't junk. I don't think it would be right to say the name of my company in here; but if you PM me I will tell you who we are.

There is another company starting out there who buys preloaded tapes and is selling them at a nice price more than my metal tapes. Mine are custom loaded with shells I have bought and tape I have had people test. The new chrome I am thinking of doing is being tested now. To see what people think. I use no Chinese tape or shells. Trust me it is hard work. And tape has went way up in price. It is crazy.
