we work with so many different types of recordings, our price list is rather long.
Please take a moment to scroll down, and you'll find what you're looking for. Thanks!
Return shipping costs are not included in our prices, and postage is calculated by package weight and zip code. We use US Priority Mail for most orders, and economical Media Mail for large heavy orders such as boxes full of reel tapes. There is no per-order "handling fee", but we do charge for new packaging materials if the original packaging cannot be re-used to ship your order back to you. You may elect not to have the original records returned to you with your new CD's. That would save on return shipping costs. Payment is not required when you send an order. We request payment only when your order has been completed.
Discounts are available for multiple albums or cassettes in the same order. If you have an extremely large project, please e-mail us for your large project estimate.

Reel Tapes -
We are often asked "How much are reel tapes?" The answer is, we don't know! We don't know the tape speed, number of tracks, arrangement of tracks, contents of the tape, how many times it will break, and so on. There is just no way of knowing what a reel will cost until it's here and playing on the machine, because only then will we know what will be needed for restoration. Reels are priced according to the length and condition of the recording, and the cost is $20.00 per hour for GOOD tape, with bad tapes costing more. The minimum cost for any one single reel is $12.50, and for any one single order, $20.00.
Train Wreck - Some tape recordings are absolute nightmares to restore, and such tapes are priced on a per-case basis. Constant separating of old splices, tape keeps breaking, tape flipped upside down, 3 different speeds on the same tape, incessant start/stop noises, absolutely horrid recording quality, etc. We sincerely hope you don't have a tape like this, but if you do, don't despair. We can recover it, it'll just cost a bit more.
are reels of tape without reels. We can work with
pancakes for an additional $5 per reel.

for one spool, $35 per spool for each additional spool in the same order.

Price will be higher if we encounter problems during playback such as snarls, breaks, etc., and lower for shorter-length spools.
Dictaphone Machine Belts - $25.00 for the first belt, $20.00 per belt thereafter, transferred and restored.
Soundscriber discs - $10.00 - $12.00 per side in good condition. Slightly more in poor condition.
