BASF Chromdioxid Super - 1977 - EU
*PLEASE NOTE, THESE ARE FOR COLLECTION PURPOSES ONLY! ALTHOUGH NEW AND SEALED, THE ONES I HAVE TESTED ARE PRONE TO SHEDDING. THIS IS ONE OF THE WELL KNOWN FLAWS OF TYPE 3s - AND WHY THESE ARE THE LOWEST PRICE ANYWHERE*
Type 3 cassettes weren't around for long.
Combining a ferric layer with a chrome, it was thought they would give the bass of a ferric and the highs of a chrome. And they did.
Unfortunately not many deck manufacturers put a Type 3 setting on their decks and as Type 2 cassettes improved and then Type 4 came along, the Type 3 disappeared in the early 80s.
Rare and sought after, these are BASFs from the late 70s and are a fine addition to any collection.

Its headquarters is located in Ludwigshafen, Germany. BASF has customers in over 190 countries and supplies products to a wide variety of industries.

In 2015, BASF posted sales of €70.4 billion and income from operations before special items of about €6.7 billion.

Between 1990 and 2005, the company invested €5.6 billion in Asia, for example in sites near Nanjing and Shanghai, China and Mangalore in India.
