It’s time to digitize, for reel


Before people were bobbing along to their favorite 80’s jam on their Walkmans, audio tapes looked a whole lot different – and we’re not talking about 8 track decks. We’re talking about reel-to-reel audio tapes – big, heavy and cumbersome pieces of equipment that faintly resembled a cassette tape with the case deck removed. With wheels nearly a foot in diameter, threading a tape ¼-inch wide, reel-to-reel machines were nearly the size of a suitcase – good for your luggage, bad for easily porting around your favorite tunes.

As a vintage form of audio recording, open reel-to-reel players used the first form of magnetic tape, and prior to that it was steel. It was threaded through mechanical guides and tape head assembly, and attached to a take-up reel with practical application coming mainly through use in data storage on mainframe computers, video tape recorder (VTR) machines and high quality analog audio recorders. The technology may seem older than time itself, especially knowing where we’ve landed in today’s audio technology, but reel-to-reel tape recorders were widely used in schools and in the home up until the 1960s, when the compact cassette took over. 

But remember, your reel-to-reel tapes still contain a magnetic tape – similar to the one in your VHS tapes and other analog media – and if history has taught us anything, it’s that magnetic tape wears down and fades over time. How unfortunate would it be if you lost all your old family voice recordings from before WWII, prime jazz recordings when the era was booming, epic radio broadcasts and more? If you’ve got any reel-to-reel tapes tucked away in storage, now is the time to act before it’s too late.
