The Beatles Abbey Road 15 Ips 2 Track Studio Master Reel To Reel Tape Two Reels For Sale

The Beatles Abbey Road 15 Ips 2 Track Studio Master Reel To Reel Tape Two Reels

What can I say about this? This is an audiophile's dream come true - a master copy of The Beatles Abbey Road! When is the next time you will have the opportunity to get one of these? Don't wait, offer now and offer accordingly!
I can guarantee you've never heard this classic sound like this before, in all it's analog glory.This is one of a handful of original master tapes and master tape copies in my own personal collection.No compression, light EQ. This tape is 4th generation, with the original master locked away in the abbey road studio vaults being the 1st generation. This is the closest most of us will ever be able to get to that original 1st generation master. It is very low in noise and hiss, which is barely detectable. The level of the tape is very hot, and it is very dynamic. It is spread across two reels of the highest quality studio grade tape. One for the side A master and one for side B. Tapes are fully leadered at the heads and tails, wound tails out, and slowly and evenly tightly packed properly onto new sturdy metal reels in new white tape boxes. (Info written on the side in sharpie)Even if the Tape Project ever released this title (which is highly unlikely), I doubt it could ever sound this good!
If you are unfamiliar with the TP, look them up. It is a label that releases music as mass produced 15 IPS 2 track tapes, priced between $300-$500 each. Now that professional studio grade analog tape is experiencing a small revival, there are actually 5 companies producing music for sale in this format as of 2013. It is very unlikely that any of them will ever offer a title of this caliber though.I've done a shoot out between the 2009 remasters on USB, Black triangle CD, original US 1st pressing, MFSL half speed mastered pressing, and numerous UK cuts including the 1st pressing. This tape wins hands down every time. Why? I believe it is the lack of processing. Every release has its fair share of compression and limiting, and other electronic manipulation of the sound. And the LPs, while still great sounding, still suffer from the limitations of the format, especially with long sides like this album has. (Listen to the bass on I Want You, She's So Heavy, you'll be surprised it ever existed on the 1st pressing LPs!
The 2009 remasters are nearly unlistenable due to the botched up editing job - they even digitally removed some of the nuances in John's guitar performance on I Want You! Not the way to treat a masterpiece, in my opinion. Widely regarded as the best album of all time. This tape, in terms of provenance is very similar to what would have been used as a cutting master in the US and other foreign territories.
The drums and bass are so tight and snappy, you'll swear you have a direct mic-feed of the band being piped into your speakers. For the person who's bought this album more times than they can count - buy the best sounding copy to end them all.All items listed by me are sold strictly AS-IS.
