TASCAM 424S Studio Cassette C-60 High Bias Type II

TASCAM throws it back to the '80s with the 424S Type II cassette! These tapes are engineered for greater storage capacity and higher-fidelity audio.

The TASCAM 424-S Studio Cassette is a genuine high bias type II cobalt oxide cassette specifically engineered for outstanding output (4db louder than standard Type II cassettes), low distortion, and unmatched musical clarity when used with TASCAM Portastudio cassette recorders. Industry leading specs like high coercivity for superior storage capacity and almost double the retentivity of standard cassette tapes for enhanced imaging of your recordings ensure your recordings will be higher-fidelity and stronger than ever. The tape formulation was engineered and tested specifically in recalibrated and restored vintage TASCAM Portastudio workstations and stereo recording decks.

The 424-S Cassette has the same specifications of the Master 424 Studio Cassette, but without the gold collector reels.
