Audio Tape Comeback?

.

You knew it was a matter of time before audio tape made a comeback.  The folks at Bottlehead (respected tube amp kits) are refurbishing 1/4″ (and 1/2″) reel-to-reel tape decks, outfitting them with high end bearings, improved tape path, and tube electronics to replace the miserable mid-80’s prosumer electronics.  Some studio recorders too!

What’s next?  Will my Tascam 122MKIII be a collector’s item?
