The Cassette Collector
Collecting Cassette Music Tapes!
Recorded music on cassette tapes had their hayday between the early 1970s and late 1990s. You can find a ton of them at garage sales and bargain bins, and for the collector this is a great time to start or build on your collections.
Cassette tapes have a lot in common with records when you collect. With records, you want a good playable record but the sleeve is what's really important. With cassettes, you want a good playable cassette but the cardboard insert is what really counts.
There are some really great inserts (covers) that come with your cassettes. You can always splice a tape but if the insert isn't in great condition, all it's good for is a filler.
Hope you enjoy this site and find some useful info. Maybe you'll get hooked on collecting cassettes if you aren't already.
Converting Cassette Tapes To CD!
While I enjoy collecting vintage tapes, you can ruin them by over-playing them. You never know when one is going to catch in your cassette player and they can be a real pain to get rewound. To avoid ruining my tapes, I only play them once, and that is while I am transferring them to CDs.
If you want to transfer your music from cassette tape to CDs, you can download a free program for doing this. The free download only lets you do it three times, then you'll have to purchase the program to continue using it.
The free download converts the music to digetal so it can be recorded on a CD and it also tells you how to connect your cassette or record player to your computer. It's works great and can be downloaded from cnet.com.
