Product Information

Type 4 Maxell Metal tape loaded into type 2 chrome clear shells


On auto sensing recording machines these shells will switch the machine to record at the incorrect chrome type 2 (II) settings and the end result will be poor. There are 3 ways to record onto these Metal cassettes correctly.

1. Use a recording machine with manual tape selector buttons or switches and select 'Metal' or type '4' sometimes type 'IV' to record onto the cassette. If you have manual selector then you could use any type of shell to record onto these.

2. If your machine has auto sensors to switch the settings you need an extra hole (2 actually one for each side) near to the middle of the top edge of the plastic shell. These shells do have the recess already there in place but unfortunately it's covered with plastic at the top and it is not a removeable tab like the record tab. So there needs to be a small hole made in the plastic and that would need to be done very carefully...or

3. If skilled and confident enough you could fool your recording machine sensing 'arms' to thinking it has fallen into the hole with a bit of fiddling about. But make sure you attack the correct arm and remember if it goes wrong or you break it then it could switch to the wrong setting for other tape, so again you would need to be very careful.

 Maxell MCP 16 Metal tape, the very same tape which Maxell used at the Telford UK factory to make commercial Maxell branded Metal tapes.

This is the thicker/stronger 60s base tape at 16+ micron making it possible for us to custom load tape lengths of your choice up to a C66 maximun.

If the exact length you need is not listed in the drop down menu then please order the nearest length and message the exact length (not over C66)
