If you have an audio format that is not listed above, we can still help!
Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding any audio formats you have in your collection and we are happy to investigate a solution even if it is something we have not come across before.
We have the ability to handle fragile or deteriorated recordings that need special care, cleaning and/or repair.
Examples include rehousing cassette tapes in new shells, treatment for ¼” tapes suffering from binder hydrolysis (sticky shed syndrome), cleaning tapes with mold or crystalline residue, and cleaning lacquer discs with exuded plasticizer (palmitic acid deposits).
