    I have tapes

    So…if you’re still interested, I have a box of 64 tapes ready to ship after culling the herd. All Dead, mostly 80’s. I’ll even pay postage, just want to see them go to a good home. Let me know, but I am not very tech savvy, (it was hard for me to even get to where I could post this), so please be patient.

    Tapes for a new home

    @Deadhead1974, If you still have tapes available, I'm happy to pay for shipping. I'd be more than happy to give some of your tapes a new home.

    Tape Collection for Trade

    Live cassette collection of 600-700 pieces.
    Looking to trade for CD Box Sets, almost any genre.
    Most Dead stuff already gone but lots of other good stuff.
    Some 60s, lots of 70s & 80s rock and folk. A nice eclectic assortment, many off-beat under-the-radar artists. Many NY radio station live folk & singer-songwriter stuff.

    Send message here with your email addy - i check frequently and will reply with the details.

    You can probably get an estimate of shipping costs by measuring the approximate weight and size of the box they would fit into. Naturally, as you say, the destination is also a factor.

    The size of the final package will determine the price scale which increases in steps by weight.
    There will be a price scale for domestic shipping, and different price scales depending on overseas regional codes. The codes often seem to be determined as much by postal infrastructure as they are by proximity.

    These rates should all be posted on the website of whatever delivery service you choose, be it USPS, FedEx, or whatever. These days some services have better coverage in different regions, while another is better for a different region.

    For example, when I ship stuff to the US, I use a courier service, something like UPS, but when I send things to Europe, it's better to use a Post Office product.

    For another example, back when I was trading blank tapes and postage for someone to dub shows for me, I put the tape in an envelope, weighed it, and bought the return postage for that envelope before including both the stamped return evenlope and the tape into second package, which, of course, also had to have postage. So, if all you're asking for is postage, that's totally reasonable. The only hold up is that no one knows how much the postage will be yet. It's hard to put your hand up and say, "Me," under those circumstances.

    Another concern for international shipping is whether eyebrows will be raised at customs inspection, but there is no way to predict that. Essentially the tapes would be a gift with no commercial value.

    I suppose collectors more knowledgable than myself could probably guesstimate the weight based simply on the number of tapes, but if you can somehow weigh the boxes, a ballpark figure should be just a few clicks away. Then, if someone from Kansas, or someone from Germany, or like myself, from Japan, or wherever, shows interest you can quickly refer to the chart and have an idea how much they should expect to send to you. You don't want to settle on a price, and then find out that isn't enough to cover shipping, right?

    It also saves you packing everything up, taking it to the post office, and then having the buyer back out because postage was far more than expected. I reckon people would like to know what they're getting into before going forward. Personally, I imagine it's gonna be more than I can afford right now. Can't spend money I don't have, regardless of the quality of your collection. However, at this point, even if I was seriously considering your offer, imagination is the only thing I have to go on. See what I'm saying?

    I completely agree with you, these vintage tapes could still provide a lot of joy to someone.
    A lot of people still listen to tapes.
    It would be a travesty to have them end up in the garbage.

    tapes

    It is over 300 tapes; closer to 400.

    I would like a decent home for this carefully collected batch of tapes.

    I don't know how much shipping would cost as it is a large collection from the late 1960's to the early 1990's. I suppose it depends on where you are located. I am in California north of San Francisco.

    There are JGB tapes in the collection as well.

    A lot of effort went into this and money too.

    If you cannot pay the amount necessary to ship it with the Casio cases that they are in (its about 6 of them full), I don't know what to suggest.

    Thank you for your interest.

    All's quiet on the Deadhead front

    Deadhead1974:

    Pretty quiet around here, I see.

    At the moment I'm extremely short on spare change for shipping, and raise that the question of international customs' interest in, or perhaps ignorance of such content. I do find myself salivating, but ya can't spend what ya ain't got.

    Hopefully you can hang on to them until a more stable enthusiast turns up.

    Roughly how many tapes are there?
    What do you reckon domestic shipping will be?

    Might be easier to find a taker if they know how much postage will be needed.

    A lot of people probably filled up while the Internet Archive was still open trading on all formats.
    I for one still have a tape deck, sadly didn't binge on the Archive when I could have, and can't afford the string of limited edition official releases that are so tantalizing.

    Good luck!

I've decided to simplify my life further and I need to find a good home for my tapes. Mostly Grateful Dead, all kinds of gems - collected back in the early 90's. Lots of stuff - I have about 450-500 hours of Dead, plus probably 50-80 hours of Phish and a few other oddballs... any interest? No cost at all other than shipping - but given the physical size of these 400 tapes, picking them up from my house in B.C. would probably be easiest?? Hmm, perhaps we could figure out another plan. Please email me at davecox37@gmail.com -

i've got boxes and display cases full of quality bootleg tapes to trade for some quality cds, dvd's or to pass on to anyone that wants to listen to audiotapes. some of my favorite shows are Madison, wi 2.15.73 (phils bass solo into eyes is stamped in my mind as one of the best) and boston garden 9.26.91 second set ( a real mindbender very fluid and special)

OK, I am offering a MASSIVE hard drive burn for 1 (one) lucky head just in time for the holidays. What I am offering is a library of music that you will enjoy forever. I have over 350gb of high quality soundboards (and MANY other treats, believe me!) and video that I will burn to your blank external drive. The audio is mp3 at high bit rates from 128k to 320k. Yes, it is 'lossy' format, so picky audiophiles and FLACjunkies need not apply. All tracks are ID'd and ready for your iTunes or other digital library. A 500gb portable external is recommended for this high volume B&P. I have done this in past years for a few members. Ask members; redgrenadine, Brewster Boy or Long Rifle about the quality of my library or my trustworthiness in getting your materials back to you in a timely manner. The ideal candidate would be someone who does not have alot of stuff who is ready to explore and discover the music, and willing to share it with others freely. This collection includes Grateful Dead, Garcia stuff, Furthur, The Dead, Phil & Friends, etc... Just PM me and introduce yourself, I'll let it go for a few days and post the result here. Happy Holidays...

Hey Now,I am trying to find a home for some of my tapes. I know everyone has been on the digital side for many years including myself. I have also been matering and xfering to CD. I have a lot of early 90 tapes up for grabs. Probably about 300 or so. Most are sbds and a lot are AUD masters. I really hate to throw these in the local landfill. If anyone wants them they are yours! Shipping in large flate rate boxes for $20 ea. A box holds about 60 tapes. The other option is I am heading to Phili shows and Hampton if anyone wants them, I can bring them with me and drop off so there is no cost to you. Let me know! Let the music flow.... Deadtaper

I'm thinking Baldwin grand piano and Bruce Hornsby, K8, for your inquiry seeking a Shakedown with a classical touch. Vince Welnick also plays on the electric Hammond Xb2.Check the LMA (archive.org) for versions from Berlin, 10/19/90, thru 3/20/92, Hamilton, Ontario. FYI: I've read lately where Bruce now plays a Steinway...

I got the soundboard off the web before the site was closed down. Can we trade this stuff without goons (lawyers) coming after us???? I'd guess we could as long as the shows/tracks are not commercially available. For example, I think that April 26, 1972, Jahrhundert Halle, Frankfurt is sold on this site and should not be traded. 4/8/72 is the show they got Cumberland Blues for Europe 72. That track cannot be traded with the show. Once you get the show, you can stick it on your copy in sequence.

for those just joining us, yes, tape trading is allowed here. No, tape trading of copied commercial releases, including those out of print, is not allowed here. Hence, coming on here and asking people to copy the Fillmore 69 box set and send you the music is not okay and jeopardizes the tape trading scene. Thank you. ME the mod

I don't trade tapes anymore, but I wrote myself a plugin for Winamp that streams Dead shows from archive.org's collection of audience recordings. I wanted something that would let me listen to new shows while I work at my desk. I love it, so I figured I'd share it. If you have the latest version of Winamp, you can download my plugin here. http://www.winamp.com/plugin/deadhead/222488 If you don't have the latest version of Winamp, you can download it free here. http://www.winamp.com/ Enjoy. And if you end up using it, let me know what you think. A.Rod

Hi, I've got about 3-400 shows on tape that I'd like to unload. No trades necessary as I'm not a fan of the Dead. I just would prefer to not throw this huge pile in the trash so I'm hoping someone would like to come and pick these up--FREE. I can provide a list of the shows if you're interested. I'm in the Buffalo, NY area, FYI. Anyone interested?

Hey folks, Just wanted to say that if people are looking to give away there tapes I certainly would be interested in the J-cards. I'm part of the younger generation of Deadheads and I thought it would be neat to collect the artwork on the backs of them. I only have about 5 or so, but from the ones I have they're pretty cool. I plan on collecting a whole bunch and then making a collage out of all of them possibly. I see them as a art form! Best wishes to all, Nathan. Pretty much like these found here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.379006056358.158917.3030359263…

Hello All,I am an artist and deadhead working in Los Angeles (I know, kind of a brutal environment). I collect deadhead documentaries, and Dead audiocassettes. I have been hesitant to join the dead.net community and to post (I guess out of some form of weird intimidation), but the project I am working on needs some help, and I think this internet community can aid in its health. The project I am speaking of is a long term one. I am trying to collect every Grateful Dead show recorded on tape/audiocassette. It's a monumental aim, but I think it can be accomplished. For more precise information please look at the blog I have started that documents the progress of the project: www.deadtapecollector.tumblr.com Although I started this in the Fall of 2010 - it has taken me a while to get everything in order to prepare for the mammoth task. It is all in preparation for a well documented, and well taken care of preserve of information, imagery and sound thru physical object. Tapes are becoming harder and harder to find, and as a cultural object I feel should be preserved in some respective form or another. I am looking for any generous souls who would like to donate their tape, or tapes to this collection. It could be your worst recorded tape/s, or the best - quality is not important. What is essential is that it comes from you, a fan, and that it is charged with individual soul. I notice that there are others that have asked for substantial amounts of tapes in the past few months on this thread, I apologize for the echo. I am willing to pay for shipping, or if you are in California, to meet you and pick it up from you. I might also have something to trade, it will probably not be a tape though. I am more than happy to discuss and talk with you. You can contact me here, or from the email address on the website : deadtapecollector@gmail.com. THANKS for reading, and hope you are feeling and being 100%

Hi Everyone: Glad to be here but sad occasion. I've traveled to the White Mountains of eastern Arizona for over a decade; now they're burned to the ground. I'm contemplating a multi-media presentation with my photographs and would like to have a Morning (Mourning) Dew to go with. Who'd like to point me to the mellowest, most soulful, transcendent performance of that song? I'm pretty much a '70 - '74 kind of guy but my favorite show so far is 1976-07-18. I have 1974-10-18. If y'all could give me some suggestions, I could track-down the recordings. Sorry if this is the wrong forum. Thanks, BA

It's been a while since I've had a look at the download page, so I figured I'd take a peek, and was friggin' AMAZED to see 1500 folks have downloaded my Winamp plugin. For those who don't remember, this is a piece of software that lets Winamp play random Dead shows from the archive, one after another. I wrote it for myself to listen to the Dead while I work, and submitted it to Winamp in case anyone else was interested. No way in hell I would have thought 1500 people would download it. I seriously didn't think Winamp still had that many users! Anyway, if you're interested in checking it out, you can find it here: http://www.winamp.com/plugin/_/222488 A.Rod
