New TTE Cartridges


Gold Supporting Member
I bought some TTE tapes over a year ago to use on an EP-3 and the tape is fantastic, but the reels spin on plastic and the squeek some thing awful, and drag badly. I want to try the ball bearing cartridges (this is the first I have heard of them) Heck if you just bought one and re-wound it with tape from the crappy plastic ones it would be worth it. Assuming you can do that.

sounds promising.

i had a fulltone cartridge freeze up on me in my echoplex, up until then it sounded good but was very sqeaky. i bought one of those aluminum ones from orbit electronix--same tape, no squeaking.


I actually like the squeak. Odd I know, but it just sort of comforts me in an old fashion way.
