no way i could listen to those swirly reels, after a few glasses of whiskey i would get dizzy and my eyes would be spinning like those reels and that lead to an even worse hangover . that's why i never buy those tapes lol. i love to stare at the boombox when i'm drinking and those tapes would spin me right into the floor lol.

Are the spindles a unique shape to accomodate the reel discs? I'd love to cut some new patterns and convert some normal tapes.

I find reel tapes useful on decorational purposes, old school radios look way cooler with the reel tape, but reel tapes i´ve seen have poor sound quality. Great score anyways !  :thumbsup:

This is an old thread but thanks guys! I use them for decoration really. Sometimes they get a recording if I'm in the mood.

I have a couple spiral tapes too, and they piss me off because the idiot who designed them drew the spiral backwards. The spiral should rotate inwards when you press Play, but it doesn't, it rotates outwards.  :thumbsdown:

Those are blanks, I was talking about the ones with music on them, and CRO2 not reel to reel. I have a few rock albums in CRO2 bought long ago at the music store, not sure how to find anymore, had no luck.

Yeah some albums were recorded on CRO2, but I doubt anyone today would bother listing them as such.

True, I guess I'll just buy some of those blank reels and dub my own, at least that way I can get some of my favorite songs that were never on cassette. Love you're Reli's Ghetto Blasters videos btw. :rock:

Thanks man!  Are you talking about blank reel-style tapes with chrome tape?  Most of them actually seem to be Normal tape.  For sound quality I would go for TEAC instead of Reel Clear tapes.  I don't know whose tape they put in Reel Clears but I wasn't impressed by the sound quality.  TEAC's sound more clear to me.
