"Received my old 78 and the NEW cd in good order and wanted to share with you that I would recommend you to anyone! I got the basic sound restoration service and the quality is excellent! Also, you completed the job in a timely manner! I had searched locally for just such a service as yours to no avail and discovered you very quickly on the web. ..."

Tape Baking

  • Some tapes exhibit "Sticky Shed Syndrome" and need to be "baked"
  • There is abundant information about "Sticky Shed Syndrome" and "Tape Baking" in the Internet
  • This condition affects only a few very specific brands of tapes. Most 1/4 inch tapes are NOT affected by this condition. 1/2 inch tapes of a certain make and age are more affected.
  • Any brand of tape that was stored in optimum conditions (68 degrees F at 40% humidity) will be free from this condition. Poorly stored tapes are more prone to the "Sticky Shed Syndrome".
  • You do not need to select this option as we will perform "Tape Baking" only IF STRICTLY NECESSARY (because the tape is already deteriorated and can not be played otherwise) in order to get the transfer done
  • We perform this operation safely, in a time consuming manner (24 hours including cooling time)
  • There are tapes that are in such poor shape that even Tape Baking may not be able to salvage. 

 

In any and all cases, we shall be held completely harmless for situation in which Tape Baking is not effective in salvaging an already defective tape. We will charge for work performed and return the tape. If you prefer that we do not perform "Tape Baking", you must provide clear written instructions in the "Additional Information" box of the Checkout page (such as NO TAPE BAKING PLEASE). Placing the order confirms acceptance of our terms and releases us of any liability.
