Denon HD8 - 1988 - US

Denon are consistently some of the most expensive blank Cassette brand out there.

Who they were made by varies, some say SKC, some say in house, but regardless, they look good and sound great.

This is their top of the line Type II - Metal, ferric and cobalt particles, but for Type II bias. These tapes do have more hiss than a normal cobalt/ferric Type II, but it's negated by the fact that the manufacturer recommends these are recorded at +7db (look at the back of the wrapper).

NOTE 1: B-Grade 60 Minutes. Light scuffing and two minor tears - see pics and try to spot them.
NOTE 2: B-Grade 100 Minutes cassette has one visible small rip on back of the wrapper, and a few other small rips on one of the edges, also in the back. See 2 pictures... scroll to the end of all the pictures.
