I recently bought a reel to reel tape machine and wanted to find a place that sells 10" reels of new tape. I bought your tape and am very happy with it. Will be buying more.

I used this tape on the Otari MX 5050 And it works great! The playback of recorded audio sounds rich and full!

Nice to be able to buy new tape. Good quality. Takes the eq settings and you can drive it as hard as the old maxell tape. A bit expensive but a very good product.

Great sounding tape. Superior in sound details than old tape you may buy on eBay/Reverb

By Camilo G on May 28, 2019

I'm giving 5 stars because of quality, I have a Tascam studio machine and the the studio quality and the MDS-36 tape works very well as I have purchased a number of these in both grades, this is the first time it had a very pungent chemical smell that fill the room for about 2 weeks before fading out and now the smell is gone. Thank you for a fine quality product in the future it may in your best interest to air it out a little longer.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
