BASF FeCr III - 1977

The FeCr formulations were the cassette industry's answer to Type I's treble and Type II's bass problems. A dual layer of ferro on one side and chrome on the other, before being applied onto the tape's plastic base layer produced a well balanced formulation ready to produce great results across all frequencies.

NOTE 1: These are not suffering from the ferric/chrome layers separation that is known to happen with certain batches of later manufactured BASF FeCr cassettes. I have opened and recorded on one random cassette of the lot and it is impeccable in every way. Manufactured with quality in mind

NOTE 2: Priced between $26.99 and $27.99... you know where.

NOTE 3: Five (5) B-Grade tapes.
Various blemishes, from ripped wrappers to crack(s) on the case. Generic pictured shown only. All still sealed. Two with heavier case damage will be accompanied by an extra perfect case. 

Watch below Tony Villa's video for a good review and testing of a famous and iconic Sony FeCr cassette and a very popular BASF ferrochrome III tape.
