Pyral Superferrite - Type 3 - 1970s - EU

Pyral Superferrite - 1970s - EU

 A Type 3 that can be recorded as a Type 1 too. 

I was surprised by how good  they sounded...

PLEASE NOTE: Type 3 are know to deteriorate. All the ones from this batch I've tested have been superb, but as these are sealed I can't test them all, so you buy as a collectible at your own risk...hence the low price for a Type 3
