Hi from Australia
UP FOR SALE THERE IS SOME 50+ REVERSE SENSING FOIL FOR REEL TO REEL TAPE DECKS. THIS IS NEW FOIL !!
Like the original vintage foil, these strips are cut at approximately 3.5 cm long and they are about 5 mm wide (the ¼” tape is about 6.3 mm wide) Decks might include Pioneer RT-707/RT-909, Akai GX-265/GX-280/635/636/646/747/77 etc. Make sure your deck supports these before purchasing.Also can be used for 8 track tapes, just let me know and I will send you the longer foil strips.
DO NOT FORGET !! The foil strip goes on the back of the tape (see photos ). I mention this as lots of buyers ask me why, when I remind them of this detail. By putting the foil at the end of the full tape, then your tape will play forward and backward , then stop.If you put foil at both ends, then your tape will play continuously..Also make sure the reverse selector is in the right position(see photo). This is correct for AKAI.
As for Pioneer it has to go on the magnetic side (the recorded side).
Email me if you have any questions..and check you instruction/operations manual
There are also similar listings where strips are being sold that have been cut from metal tape used in the heating and cooling industry. Metal tape used in the heating and cooling industry use adhesives that can harm your valuable tapes and the tape path of your deck.
I confess that I have bought them too, unaware of this fact, and sometimes the tape with the strip CAN NOT PASS between the head and the pinch roller on my AKAI’s, that’s how thick they are.. I have attached some photos of my foils, and also in one photo, the first strip is the one I have bought (longer strip ) the 2 sets of strips , side by side,front & back are from a Maxell tape (original foils) and the last strip on the left is what I am selling now.
Also on the last photo you can see the back of the tape and on mine is just the other side of the foil and on the bad one that I have bought , there is a white backing and is much thicker.
I have listed the quantity as being fifty plus because I always throw in a few extra in case I miss count. Also I can sell it as a 1.9 m longs strip and you can cut it yourself or 9 X 21cm strips for the 8 track tapes...
