  • Best place to buy blank cassette tapes?

    Our group is looking to make some tapes.

    Where can I get 100 or so for cheap?

    Thanks!!

        Seriously, do they even make tapes anymore? I thought there was some deal made over the last plant that made them shutting down recently.

                  Call around some used record stores? The nerdflingers there would probably know where you could pick some up. You could also try eBay. A quick search of "blank cassette tapes" brings up a ton of results.

                    Deltamedia.com has 100 packs for just under $30. They appear to be cheapies though.

                    No experience with them, just turned them up on a search.

                      I think overall a cheaper and less-labour-intensive solution is to find a company that still makes x amont of cassette tapes from the material you send them.

                      I can't imagine anyone wanting to copy 100 of them manually and the expenses of the cassettes bought from store will most certainly exceed the expenses of buying them from a company that has the right wholesale accounts and connections.

                      But seriously, why not a CD?

                      I did understand the cassette thing back in 2000's when manufacturing CD's was still quite expensive and folks actually still had cassette decks, but today.... it's pretty much the opposite. Few people own a deck and CD demos are damn cheap to make.
                      Honestly...this is not music... it is hatred and self loathing expressed with loudness.

                        Try Amazon.  I did a quick search and came up with several sources.

                        Some of you have asked why casette/ why not CD?  The OP is apparently wanting to do some recording.  4 track tape machines are hot right now.  Warm, analog sound is cool.  I see them pop up on CL somewhat frequently.  Two years ago you couldn't give one away.  Now they're selling for better than new prices.

                        I have an old Vesta-Fire recorder in storage that I'm about ready to retrieve.  I'll probably need to replace the drive belt, but that's an easy fix.

                      ^^^actually, checking ebay, it seems cheaper to buy a duplicator than to get it done professionally.

                            Brilliant. Tapes are the new vinyl. An old tascam dual cassette deck at a garage sale and 100 blank tapes off ebay should run you $50 max.


                            When you sell all 100 in record time, CD dweebs will still be jerkin off trying to give away their vanilla bland media with no sex appeal. Winning
