Sony UX Turbo - 1990 - US
One of Sony's best cassettes in our opinion. Wonderful for recording on and hardy. We seriously see this Sony tape as one of the most unnoticed gem of all tapes. The "Gallery" is just not paying attention yet!
As per Sony and its very own description on the wrapper, this cassette has UX-S Type II tape inside and a very rigid and heat resistant shell. Best value SONY tape at our store! Going, going... gone!
The shell is welded, which some people don't like, but the truth is that welded shell is more rigid and better balanced than one with screws. It's only a problem should you want to open the cassette up...
We've found these don't really need any bias tweaks so should work well in all decks, but their rarity means they're not priced for general use.
