Anybody else here hoarding cassette tapes?
They don't make Type II or IV tapes any more and people will buy them for big BIG bucks, the prices go up every year.

It's a fun hobby, I made a lot of money hoarding certain types of floppy disks back in the day.

Amazing how something once so commonplace has become a rare artifact in such a short period of time. I guess that's technological progress.

Yes because they still have uses in music production.

Re: Anybody else here hoarding cassette tapes?
Big cassette tape user.

Yes the Type I 'ferric' or 'normal' tapes are the only ones being produced today. Because of "environmental factors" the better Type II 'chrome' tapes and Type IV 'metal' tapes have not been made for decades.

However with a good tape deck such as any of the 3 (and some 2 head) Nakamichi decks, you can get excellent recordings even on type I tapes (little to no hiss).

There are still quite a few of the Type II chrome tapes around which you can often find new for around $3 or so.

Done well you can get excellent / pro sounds out of a good system.

I picked up an 80's Nakamichi deck this year after my Sony bought the farm.

At last, I can afford a NAK almost 40 years later!

oh no doubt - I pick them up at yard sales especially if sealed for peanuts. I got an entire box of sealed cassettes from the early 1970s for a couple bucks and sold them for about $30 each on Ebay

Yes. Cassette tapes will be the only form of currency in 2021.

Not for their intrinsic value but because they can be used as dental floss.

I have a 1965 AMC and have been looking for a cassette player. Radio is only AM. Been buying cassettes at 2nd hand stores for a buck a piece.
Will check the pawn shops to try to find a player.

Why put it on blast? If you had knowledge of a treasure trove would you go tell everyone. Way to shoot yourself in the foot over validation.
