SKC AX - 1987 - EU
You want AR performance, for a lower price? Here you are, one of the finest Type 1s ever!
SKC made many tapes for other companies, like Memorex and their quality was always good and sometimes, exceptional.
But they also made their own cassettes, but these were never really common outside of Asia.
Here is their TOTL Super Ferric from the late 80s.
The shell is very nice and Denon / Sony looking, with that big window.
But the tape...wow! Recorded these at +7db with no audible distortion. You pine after an AR-X at a decent price...here they are and these are even harder to find!
Please note, that although new and sealed, the print on the foil wrapping is starting to blur after 30 years.
