Up to 4 Track 1/4 inch Audio Reel to CD
We digitally capture and restore your magnetic audio reels, then transfer them to CD. If your reels are torn or mould damaged, we can even repair most of them FREE of charge.

Reel-to-reel or open-reel audio tape recording is the form of magnetic tape audio recording in which the recording medium is held on a reel (rather than being securely contained within a cassette). In use, the supply reel or feed reel containing the tape is mounted on a spindle; the end of the tape is manually pulled out of the reel, threaded through mechanical guides and a tape head assembly, and attached by friction to the hub of a second, initially empty take-up reel.

Please let us know if you would prefer an MP3 / WAV conversion – there is no extra charge for this.

Prices start at just £10.95 per reel and reduce depending on the quantity you have. Scroll down for full price details, and to generate an instant quotation.

To place an order, visit our Gravesend office, drop your reels in to one of our drop-off points (MaidstoneTonbridgeAshford, Folkestone, or Ramsgate), or post your reels to Media Transfer, 56 Bath Street, Gravesend, Kent DA11 0DF. Return postage is FREE for orders of 15+ reels. Otherwise, see our list of return postage costs here.

If you have 10+ reels and live in the DA, ME, Kent TN, BR, and some RH postcode areas, we now offer free personal collection AND delivery of your reels. Just give us a call on 01474 569 390 to arrange a collection.
