Transfer Services

 

We're often asked if we can transfer 8-tracks to CD. You bet!. The only thing that we require is that the tape be tuned-up or repaired before the transfer is made. If your tape just needs a minor repair/tune up before the transfer the cost is $3 per tape. If it need a major repair (see our 8-track repair page for more information) the cost will be at least $5 per tape. *Longer tapes, generally those over 60 minutes are harder to transfer due to the large amount of tape in these carts. We will do our best to give you the best quality sound transfer, but we do not guarantee these longer tapes.*

*****In order to obey copyright laws, we must return your original media.  According to the copyright laws, the CD we make for you from your 8-track is permanently paired with the 8-track you sent for conversion to CD. It is the 8-track that you purchased that holds the copyright for the music copied to your new CD. You should retain the 8-track to prove you have purchased a copy of the copyright to the music held on the CD.

It is legal for a consumer to transfer for his or her own use copyrighted material from one medium he has purchased to another medium.  You must, however, retain the original source medium since the copyright you purchased is attached to that item.  Making multiple copies is not legal unless you own multiple copyrights obtained from purchasing multiples of the original media, or if you are the original copyright owner.  We operate our business following copyright laws. *******


After trying a local business to convert our 8 track tapes to CD's, which was a failure and after about 2 months I finally got my one test tape back and searched online and found Kate's Track Shack. I called Kathy and spoke with her and she answered any and all my questions I had. She said I could call or email anytime with any further questions I had. When I did email her she was always very quick to reply. She sounded like an honest and sincere person so I packaged up my 6 tapes and mailed them off. I was not disappointed. Within 2-3 weeks had them back. They sound Great! And an added bonus she reused the package I sent tapes to her in. Less waste, I like that. I give Kate's Track Shack 4 stars and recommend her very highly. I would definitely consider doing business with her in the future. - Arlene


We received the package yesterday and immediately listened to our wedding of almost 45 years ago.  It was the most impressive and emotional gift to ourselves this Christmas!  You did a spectacular job cleaning and copying the two audio 8 tracks onto CDs!  Besides being professional, you brought your personal touch to this project by contacting me by email and phone as when necessary.   Our 90 year old uncle is extremely ill; he was responsible for taping our wedding.  Imagine our surprise to hear his younger, stronger voice at the end of our wedding ceremony say a few words of support and love to us, followed by his personal touch, adding five waltzes from the 1940's.  My husband and I were in tears of sadness and joy.  Thank you!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

*A CD will only hold about 74-80 minutes of recorded music. If you have an 8-track that is longer than that, the CD will have to be broken down into 2 CD's.

**Transfer to a flash drive is an add on option. The $8.99 rate applies to the first 8-track or cassette added to the flash drive. Any additional 8-track or cassettes added will be $2.99 ea. up to 8GB. If you only want your transfer to be put onto a flash drive and not a CD, then the cost will be the same for either the Basic ($15) or Standard ($20) transfer to CD - The rates above for additional 8-track or cassettes being added will apply.

If you have a tape(s) that need major repairs, please email us so we can determine what the charges would be.

VHS to DVD Transfers

We are now able to do VHS tapes to DVD transfers. A basic transfer is $25. Included is a paper sleeve and hand written title on DVD. If the tape needs any type of repair, we would contact you first with an estimate for the repair.

Additional Add-On Options:

DVD Case...............................................................................................................$4.00 ea.

Duplicate copies......................................................................................................$5.00 ea.


If you want to have us make an 8-track from a CD, we are able to do this as well. It's a little more complicated than making a CD from an 8-track. Same copyright laws apply as those mentioned above. We can only make one 8-track from the source material for archival purposes. We must have the original media to make the transfer(s). All original media will be returned with the 8-track. If you have a band that wants to put your album on 8-Track contact us at sales@ktsprod.com. Thanks!


CD to Single 8-Track Transfer

Basic Transfer - $15+ per 8-Track + S/H Standard Transfer $45+ per 8-Track + S/H

        Carts - up to 40 minutes - $15 ea.
        Carts  from 41-50 minutes $20 ea.
        Carts from 51 to 60 minutes $25 ea.

*Complete 8-track- (Max. capacity for each 8-track is 60 minutes)*

*Straight transfer from your master material.

*Hand Written Title on 8-track.

 

 


Carts - up to 40 minutes - $45 ea.
Carts  from 41-50 minutes $50 ea.
Carts from 51 to 60 minutes $55 ea.

*Completed 8-track - (Max. capacity for each 8-track is 60 minutes)**

*Music arranged from your master material so that each of the 4 tracks is as close to the same length as possible to avoid excessive dead air at the ends of each track.

*Hand Written Title on 8-track.

 

Making an 8-track is a lot more difficult than making a CD from an 8-track or cassette. A lot more work is involved in making them and therefore the cost is more. Pricing above is for a single 8-track transfer. If you or your band have need of multiple tapes made, please email us for pricing and info.

*If using our NOS tape, the max recording time that we can do is 60 minutes (15 minutes per track). If you use a used cart, it can be up to 90 minutes. However, tapes that are over 60 minutes are not guaranteed against jamming. With this much tape, you need a strong player to pull them through, and even then they can still jam. What we can do is to break the recordings into (2) 8-track tapes, putting half on one 8-track and half on the other. The cost would be the same as a single recorded x 2 - ie. if the recording is 80 minutes, then you would be charged $15 x 2 or $45 x 2.

We will use whatever shells we have available. They could be NOS or used. The used carts will be cleaned up to look as new as possible.

Used tapes will need to be tuned-up and bulk erased before they can be recorded on. Regular tune-up charges will apply. For more information you can click here. Bulk erasing is $.50 per tape.

**New carts will use NOS tape and can be no longer than 60 minutes (15 minutes per track). The tape will have a new pad/splice included in the transfer cost.

Additional Add-On Options:

One-Piece Label..........................................................................................................$3.00 ea.*

Two-Piece Label.........................................................................................................$4.00 ea.*

White Cardboard Sleeve (single or double window)...................................................$0.65 ea.

Used Cardboard Sleeve (whatever we have available)................................................$0.60 ea.

* We can only do artwork/labels for non-professional tapes since we don't have the rights to copy the artwork. We can provide label templates in either Photoshop or In Design formats for the one/two piece labels. We also have a Word Document template for the one-piece label.


If you need to have vinyl (lp's) or Reel to Reels transferred, please check out LP2CD or DLF Music.

Please email us if you have any other questions.

If you are pleased with our services, please let us know so that we can your comments with others. Thanks!
