Question about Tape Decks
Getting drop outs in split second intervals when I playback tape after a recording is made. These are new DAT tapes
Also tape rewinds very slow. FF works ok
Thanks very much
If the tapes you are using are "tight" it may be causing both the drop out and rew problems. Always a good idea when you buy fresh recording media to ff then threw it through to ensure that the tape is layered flat. they can tighten up in transit sometimes in shipping from manufacture. The unit will need some service work done also. A head clean could also help with the drop out. Use a Chamois tipped head cleaning tool to do thisusing iso alchol only AND A VERY GENTLE APPROACH. The drum heads themselves are very small and VERY FRAGILE!! Easily broken if you do not clean the correctly. Take it to a vcr/video camera tech for a clean and service of the tape path.

Chrome tape 40-15000Hz (±3dB)
Normal tape 40-14000Hz (±3dB)
Chrome tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)
Normal tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)
Imagine what its response at, say, 30000Hz might be. That's what doubling the playback speed would demand from the head and electronics. It ain't hi-fi anymore.
