8-Track Repair Supplies

We're having some trouble with one of our suppliers so we're a little behind on the foam pads. Trying to get orders out as quickly as we can. Thanks!

If you're the sort who likes to repair his/her own tapes, we have what you need to do it! If we don't have something you're looking for, please let us know and we'll see what we can do about coming up with a solution!

Here are some unsolicited comments from some of our customers -

I currently use you repair supplies and I am very happy with them! I have repaired many tapes that play like new again! - R. Brenner, Elizabethtown, PA

...just gotta say a massive thanks, spent a couple evenings repairing tapes and had listening session today. I gotta fairly expensive valve based hi fi system and been playing 8 tracks through my Skandia RS-82. OMG the sound is amazing, forget your digital nonsense, this is real music, I'm in audio heaven. Will be ordering again soon. A. Moors, England

You know You are the BEST at making them.  And when I sell My tapes all over Planet Earth,  My Customers are so Happy to have Your Quality pads in Their favorite tapes. B. Mosqueda, IL

They are the best of the best! I have used other pads but these just kick ass. My tapes sound better replacing the other replacement pads that I have used. Yours seem to be right on spec to the original height and thickness for the best fidelity. I've attached a photo with your pads side by side with the other ones I was using. No comparison!  I'm sure the sound difference in the tapes is because of proper contact to the play head. I intend to replace all my tapes with your pads. M. Miuccio, NJ (This is a picture that Mr. Miuccio sent to us - again, unsolicited).

Kathy,   I just wanted to let you know how good i think your products are.  I have tried others and your sensing splices and pads are the best I have used. Thanks! Harry

Just wanted to say thank you!  I was able to restore 53 8-track tapes!  Your "Super Deluxe Kit" was excellent as were your supplies/products.  This was my first time attempting to restore 8-Tracks and your kit provided me with everything I needed.  Thanks Again!
