That reminds me...I have heard from two subscribers who have new shipping addresses. If you are a charter subscriber and your shipping address has changed since we sent you TP-029, please email the new information to info at tapeproject dot com. Please don't post it on the forum, though.

Time for an update:
We now have the last remaining component--the graphics firm has delivered the final art to us. Our printing department is warming up the printing presses right now. Once those are printed, it's off to the packaging department.

Those guys in the packaging department have been working very hard lately, so I'm giving them a vacation break.

Based on their schedule, I now anticipate that we will be starting to ship TP-030 to subscribers in the second week of October.

Hey guys, I know this is an old thread,
I had a couple of bugle 2s modded for tape preamp use with my a807's and
I must say, they have been keeping me happy so far.
I'm now working on putting a battery power supply together for them.
Ki, did you build one up yet?'and if so, what do you think?
Cheers
Harvey.

Tape Tech / Re: Studer C37 restoration
« Last post by eraserhead on September 19, 2017, 11:36:58 am »
I too, was wondering if anyone saved the photos or videos which the original poster shared with us.

"Us" is a little presumptive, since I joined about 5 minutes ago for the purpose of asking...but still.
 
I have a C37 in lovely condition...a Telefunken M5c stereo, purring like a kitten...and am looking for
a multitrack in the long run, to join the family.

Hi all,

Unfortunately, I did't have too many pictures left regarding this maintenance (HD crash). Take a look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwqEs1Rsfw0&feature=youtu.be

The elves here at The Tapeshed are hard at work preparing our next release: Doc Watson/Never The Same Way Once/Live At The Boarding House May 1974.

You can read some of the background here: http://www.sfgate.com/music/article/LSD-king-Owsley-Stanley-s-Sonic-Journals-11209700.php#photo-13030458

Doc Watson, along with his son Merle and a group of of supporting musicians, appeared in a four night run at San Francisco's fondly remembered night club The Boarding House. (Bonus trivia content: The Boarding House occupied the theater which had previously been the first location of Coast Recorders.) The shows were all recorded by the Grateful Dead's legendary engineer Bear (Owsley Stanley.) Now for the first time these recordings are being released to the public.
 
The Owsley Stanley Foundation, which has control of the original master tapes, has made its arrangements with Doc Watson's estate, and they just put out a seven CD box set of the entire four night run, and are doing a 2-LP release of one particular night's show. And they are allowing us to put out a tape that incorporates the same program as the LP.

The duping is almost finished, and the flanges are coming along. However due to one unusual circumstance it's hard to give a firm date for the release. This is the first time that we aren't designing the artwork in house. The graphics firm that did the art for the CD box set is also doing the design for the LP and for us. They do great work, but that means we don't have control of when it's ready. 

I'm in the shop today working on the LP mastering, so I'm hearing the program again, and getting excited all over again about getting the tapes finished and shipped out to our subscribers. It's absolutely marvelous music-making, interspersed with just a bit of Doc's country humor. I can already tell that this one is going to go into regular rotation at my house (after everyone else gets it--Romo and I don't get our personal copies until all the subscribers do.)

I'll post an update shortly when I can narrow down the release date.
