Reel 2 Reel 2 CD specializes in transferring Reel-to-Reel to CD or MP3 files. We make it possible for our clients to hear and preserve audio recordings that were made 40, 50 even 60 years ago. Our experience and expertise in this field enables us to handle each and every transfer with ease and confidence with no surprises. Any speed, any head configuration; if it was recorded on quarter-inch magnetic tape, you and your family will be listening to it in about a week. And thanks to 100 year archive technology, generations to come will still be hearing their ancestors voices as well.
When viewing our pricing please keep in mind that it is all-inclusive.
For example a 7" reel is $40 to transfer. If your tape requires 3 CD's to hold all of the content then you will get a set of 3 CD's. It will still cost $40. That includes tape baking, track marking, data instead of CD, downloading your tape and more. (Note: Only one output choice comes with price of transfer. Multiple outputs are $10 each).

Determining What You Have
Reel to reel tape (or open reel tape) came in many shapes & sizes. The most common to the average consumer was 1/4" tape. Reel-to-reel tape also came in other sizes but was reserved mostly for the professional recording market. To determine what you have, simply measure the tape, the actual tape not the reel. It should measure 1 quarter of an inch in width. (Not thickness). We transfer all 1/4" reel-to-reel tape to CD.
The Reel Size
Next, reel-to-reel tape came on many different sizes of reels. Most common among these are 3 inch, 5 inch and 7 inch. Larger 10 1/2 inch reels were also made but not as common to the home user. Recording studio demo tapes and radio/ television programs more commonly used these sizes. Here at Curtis Media Transfer we transfer all reel sizes. To determine what size reel you have, lay it down on a table and measure across the surface of the reel as close to the middle as possible, as if you are measuring a plate. Your measurement may not be exactly the measurements above but it will be very close to one of them. (See photo) Pricing here at Curtis Media Transfer is based primarily on reel size. Reel-to-reel tapes that are not full of tape are priced by how much tape, not how big the reel is.
Determining The Cost
We charge by the size of the reel...period. So the price according to the size reel you have plus return shipping will be your total cost for transferring your tapes.
Return shipping is $8 for the first tape and fifty cents for each additional tape.
So if you sent 2 three inch reel-to-reel tapes:
You do have an option to buy:
We use only 100 year archival, professional grade CD & DVD media.
Duplicate CD's for family & friends.
If you would like to get extra CD's to share with friends and family they are only $7.00 each. Also, if you want to make the copies yourself go ahead, we do not do anything to your CD's to prevent you from making your own copies.
Choose this option on your order form and we will send you a short 3-5 minutes sample of up to 5 of your tapes. (5 tapes per order). Please describe what you are looking for and our techs will try to send samples of that content.
To receive preview samples you must:

This means if something was to happen on the return trip or you needed additional copies, we could simply pull up our back-up files and remake the CDs.
Also, when you fill out your order form we receive an electronic copy right away in our email. So we know who is sending what. If something doesn't arrive in a timely manner we investigate.
