  • Description:

    Scotch 150 and 190 were introduced in 1954 as their first LP (long play) tapes offering 50% more run time than standard tapes, and have the characteristic red oxide formulation. This was a very popular tape back in the day, so they are often found in garage or estate sales. It was produced until 1972 for an incredible 18 year production run.  Notes:

    • This is a formula that has withstood the test of time. It is amazing to consider that you can make a high quality recordings on a 60 year old tape, but this is indeed possible.
    • The tape was originally developed to provide the same performance as the Scotch 111 with a thinner oxide coat to make a quality LP tape
    • Tapes of this vintage have a tendency to shed oxide more than modern tapes. This is not a sign that this tape is degrading, it should be considered normal.
    • The general quality of these tapes increased over their production run as general improvements were made, particularly with oxide shedding and smoothness.
    • This tape formulation was often used for commercial tape duplication.
    • Available Refurbished: Yes, you can buy refurbished reels of 150 in our store.
