Strand SF - 2000s - EU
A cassette that is rarely seen outside of the UK.
Strand released cassettes branded as BBC, Bush and Goodmans...and they were all really good.
This is a perplexing cassette though.
The case & shell are as cheap as late cassettes can get. It's tight and squeaky, but if your deck can handle it, it contains really sweet tape.
Very brown, don't know if it's cobalt doped, but these perform like a TDK AD to my ears. Recorded peaking at +6 in a Revox, these didn't distort but seemed to ADD bass!
So know that they look and feel cheap, but they're not common and sound superb!
