    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.
    Best,

    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…

    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!

(NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

I have a couple dozen cassettes, and don't want to just toss them out. I'll send them to someone in the U.S. that wants them.

Shows include Palace (Auburn Hills, MI) 6-93; Cleveland 9-91; Palace 3-92; Chicago 6-92; Palace 6-93; Palace 7-94; Chicago 7-95, and a few miscellaneous. Scott, who owned InFlight Sports in East Lansing, Michigan at the time, taped these.

Hello fellow Deadheads! My most fervent hope is that you are all safe and healthy and happy! I've never posted to this site yet, but was prompted by the June Bulletin and here we go! I was 17 when I first saw the Dead and now, many shows and nearly 50 years later, I still remember that first show like it was yesterday. I would always stand next to the tapers section (because I figured they knew what they were doing and would be set up in the sweet spot) but never taped a show myself. However I sit here with my trusty old Aiwa deck that still works and its a day before my birthday and I see on this forum all the time that people need to find new homes for tapes from time to time and after seeing the June Bulletin I got the idea to finally post on here and let you all know that if you are looking for a new and safe home for any of your tapes for what ever reason, that I would promise to care, restore if needed, cherish and keep them safe. I would never, ever sell them, for what magic they would be to me! Why this old man would have to kick up the dirt and dance a little every day! I know I can stream and download this music elsewhere, but those of you who have owned these tapes know that there is a certain magic feeling about being able to see and touch and feel the music and to put it in your own tape machine and let it play and play.
Call me beggar, call me Jawa, call me leech, for all of these might be apt, but I would be proud to carry on your legacy in any tapes that find their way to me for as long as I am on this side of the dirt...

Some of them should have the lineage on the J-card somewhere,Its the taping info like.
Neumann KM-184 > MP-2 > Edirol R-05 This is the rig I run.. This means if you dont know. Mic's are always first. Meaning Im running Nuemann KM-184 mics... Then if your rumming a preamp or ay other gear Im Running a Sound Device MP-2 Moic Preamp... Then lastly My deck whih is a Edirol R-05. There maybe other info in lineage too. My previous rig was Sennheiser K6-ME64 > MP-2 > TCD-D10 ProII....Tapes usually have what Gen. they are.. Like 1st gen SBD or 3rd en aud..Tjis means how may they are from the master recording..

Hey all,

Was listening to an piece on the Sirius/XM GD channel a few weeks back. One of the folks they interview was a notable taper located in Tallahassee, FL. Kind surpirsed me cause I live in Tally and I had no idea we had a celebrity taper in our midst. I totally missed the guys name. Anyone know who this is???

Thanks!

Hello,

I would be very grateful and blessed if you still have some of the 2000+ tapes you mentioned. I can help with shipping and handling. I own a few shows, but no actual tapes yet.

This would mean a lot to me. My name is Jeremiah and I am from upstate NY.

I look forward to speaking with you and seeing if you even have one or two, to help me start my tape journey :)

Thank You - With Love,

Jeremiah

I wish I could help you answer that question. I wasn't listening during that day and I live in upstate NY, or I would be happy to help if I could :/

I had a sweet collection and gave them away in the early 90s 😢
I would love any and all tapes, will gladly pay postage, I also have an extensive digital collection and would be glad to burn cds to trade

I suggest that you get hooked up with a bit torrent client. This will allow you to download shows from bit torrent sites, such as bt.etree.org.

You can contact me at cb.bandrofcheck@comcast.net and I will guide you through the process of setting up.

Be Safe, Fare Well,

Is there a policy against selling tapes? I have seen a couple of collections show up on CL and this week there is an extensive collection in an estate sale in Massachusetts.
I contacted the CL person and asked them not to sell but to offer up as free. They were nice and had some rosy BS to say about her parents giving her the tapes but she didnt want any more and was selling them. Alas, she did.
Being of the trading era i think its wrong to sell them and there may be an official dead policy or a place to report?

It was always frowned on to sell the tapes, to put it no more strongly. However, Jerry's been gone these 25 years, and a lot of once-precious tape collections, by inheritance or general attrition, have ended up in the hands of people who aren't in Deadhead culture and can't reasonably be expected to operate based on it. I'm more startled that she found someone to pay money for it, given how often Heads are offering up their tapes for free after they've gone digital, and on this very site too.

Hello all! I'm a 15 year old new deadhead and I've been wanting to collect dead tapes for awhile. I was wondering if any of you are willing to send a couple of freebie tapes. Unfortunately, I'm broke money wise until I have a job so I cannot therefore pay for shipping. I understand times have been different for months now and its fine if you are unable to. Hopefully I'm not asking for much, I just think having physical copies of Dead shows is a very special treat that not many people have anymore. Also, CDs are great too, especially if they have cool artwork to go along with them. Anyways, just shoot me a message and maybe we can work something out. Thanks!

Hey Folks! Two things: (1) I really miss MaryE and the vine trading community we had here for many years. I hope everyone is doing well! (2) Does anyone have most or many of the newer Hunter's Trix releases? He is up to # 126 now (awesome 10/15/84 show). Would love to get lossless versions and I have a lot of older sources, including some of his, to trade. Thanks!

Chef/Nick/anyone, I am willing to send you some CDs. PM me and we can talk

I've got a few of those lossless.
I know I've got HT123 - 126 FLAC

But would need to check past that.
Do you have a list of which you want and I can check what I've got.

Also, would love to hear the story behind the picture with DJG.

this post is not for the faint hearted,I was an early participant here from way back when Mr. Hunter was the webmaster..bout 30 trips around the sun give or take ago. I want my big ass collection of dead shows on cds to find a good home. These shows are Auds,Soundboards and about the best versions out there,no commercial releases.all done by the hands of the fans and thier decks. Ive known most of the tapers from back in the early days. These discs have been well kept in paper sleeves labeled and organized and stored in cabinets for cds and thats how i want them to stay. list of course is avail and pics , but I dont want to piece meal this collection out. is this possible?..would someone want this? is it all about hard drives, terabytes and streaming now? if not you maybe someone you know? shipping would be humongous.would have to be a pick up thing.im in the NYC area.Im not looking to sell the music of course. i Acquired most of this thru vines and the gratitude of the people who spread it far and wide. but with the huge amt of media put into it and storage cabinets maybe a barter thing or rtn of it on a hard drive..all open for discussion, ..also have hundreds of ratdog and PLQ shows but thats another project... PM me if this not beyond yours or someone you knows wildest Dead dreams through another day.

Hi Dstache, and Happy New Year! Some of us still around, still deadicated, and still grateful for all the bounty shared on this site. Perhaps we should move this discussion to the Vineyard rather than the tapers section? I still have some vines that ended up with me when no one else requested them and could post in those vines to let people know they are available. And I would def be interested in the MTX shows if you vine them. Have not been to the Post Office for awhile but I think I remember how to do it!
