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. We can not use MP3's as a source of original media. 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. *******

We also do not repair/transfer adult themed tapes.


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!
