Maxell UDII CD - 1998 - EU

This British made UDII is a brilliant Type II cassette. You will not be disappointed with this 1998 run, right in line with all previous UDII runs, that also never disappointed. 

Unlike it's contemporary XLII, the treble is slightly less aggressive with these UDII tapes. Indeed these performs more like a TDK SA to our ears, so they should give great results in decks that don't have manual bias controls.

These UDII feature a brilliant clear shell, with a high quality clear slip sheet. The design is simplistic yet very attractive, and there is still a lot of quality shinning trough these UDII tapes made in England. 

NOTE: These are box fresh cassettes and stock is limited. These were produced for the European market (Made in England), so once they go, it will be difficult re-stock them.

About Maxell:

Maxell Holdings, Ltd. (日立マクセル株式会社 Hitachi Makuseru Kabushiki-gaisha), commonly known as Maxell, is a Japanese company that manufactures consumer electronics.

Maxell was formed in 1960, when a dry cell manufacturing plant was created at the company's headquarters in Ibaraki, Osaka. In 1961, Maxell Electric Industrial Company, Limited was created out of the dry battery and magnetic tape divisions of Nitto Electric Industrial Company, Limited (now Nitto Denko Corporation).

On March 18, 2014 the company was listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange.[7]

The company's notable products are batteries—the company's name is a contraction of "maximum capacity dry cell"—wireless charging solutions, storage devices, computer tapes, professional broadcast tapes and functional materials.[4][5] In the past, the company manufactured recording media, including audio cassettes and blank VHS tapes, and recordable optical discs including CD-R/RW and DVD±RW.

On March 4, 2008, Maxell announced that they would outsource the manufacturing of their optical media.[6]

During the height of the Compact Audio Cassette's popularity, Maxell's audio cassettes were held in high regard, producing some of the finest examples of the standard available. The performance of the XLII-S (CrO2) and MX (pure metal particles) cassettes was regarded by many audiophiles to be the ultimate achievement in the pre digital domestic recording medium.

In the 1980s, Maxell became an icon of pop culture when it produced advertisements popularly known as "Blown Away Guy" for its line of audio cassettes. The original campaign conceived by Art Director Lars Anderson began as a two-page spread in Rolling Stone Magazine ad in 1980, and was made into television spots in 1981 which ran throughout the 1980s.[10]

Maxell audio cassettes are available in 46, 60, 90, 100, 120 and 150 minute lengths.
