Reel-to-Reel Tape Sales

Below you will find a spread sheets of the RTM tapes that we currently carry in stock. RTM does make other models and sizes that we can get in as demand increases. If you don’t see the tape style that you’re looking for, please email us for a price. Delivery on new RTM tape to us is typically 2 weeks, plus whatever time it takes to send them to you.

Note to our US and Canadian customers: We have listed pricing in both US and Canadian dollars. For our US buyers, since we are a Canadian company, there is no state or federal tax on tape being shipped within the US. To our Canadian customers, we do need to charge PST, GST or HST as required.
We ship USPS or Canada Post, or if you have an account with a courier and want to arrange shipping, you can email us a shipping label if you’d like.

Note also that we are now carrying our own  ¼ “ 10.5” metal takeup reels, listed separately below. Our takeup reels look like a stock Ampex 456 reel from the 1990s, and come in a sturdy white cardboard box. The reels have no markings on them, so they are super clean looking, or you can make up your own stickers to apply as desired. By purchasing RTM pancakes and using our own custom made reels, we can save you about $5.00 USD/$7.00 CDN per roll of 10” tape. We can custom order in the RTM reels if you’d like, please email us.

½” width tape can be ordered in pancake form if you have a bunch of ½” reels with old SSS tape, save some money and buy the 1/2” pancakes. It takes about 3 minutes to unscrew the metal flanges from the old tape. Throw that old tape out, and bolt the flanges onto the new ½” pancake. Easy, peasy!

Pancakes are not available for 1 or 2” tape, so those can only be purchased with new RTM metal reels.

We ship out a minimum of once a week, and pickup at our shop in Langley BC can be done at no charge.

We are using a conversion rate of 1.32 to convert the US pricing to Canadian, plus there’s a bit of customs clearance charges  as well. This will be subject to change slightly as the US to CDN dollar rate moves up or down.
