Welcome to 8 track avenue.com!!
Still in business and operating at full capacity (and then some!) as of October 2022!
Repair Job Customers, I am currently about 90+ days out on LARGE (20+ tapes) jobs. Smaller jobs I'm still able to get done within 1-3 weeks. Its been a very busy Summer. Thank you so much for that. Also I'm currently only making pads upon request due to the high volume of repair jobs. So if you need pads just email me Jon@8trackavenue.com and I'll get you taken care of.
UK Customers (and select surrounding countries) you now have an online store in the UK to buy used 8 track tapes, sensing foil and the foam pads I make! Save money on shipping and customs fees. Russ is constantly adding new titles to his online store. Check it out at https://8tracks.uk/
8 Track Tape, 4 Track Tape, Cassette Tape, Broadcast Cart, Apollon, and PlayTape repair supplies and services. If you like to do your own repairs, you should be able to find what you need in the "Shop" section (during busy times you may notice alot of items are out of stock. This usually means I haven't had time to make more so just email me and I can usually get an order made up for you quickly). If you would like me to do the repairs for you, "CLICK HERE" to contact me and I can answer any questions you have and/or get the process started. Generous warranty on all repair jobs.
I have been getting a lot of inquiries regarding 4 Track/multi-track Cassette recording device repairs. Unfortunately I have no experience with these machines. However I recommend you check out the Audio Kharma forums HERE. You should be able to find the help you need in those forums.
I am now experimenting with refilling Apollon/HiPac tapes! 12 minutes worth of New Old Stock tape. Price is currently $25 per tape as I do need more feedback from a wider range of customers, to make sure this works with all machines.
Email me for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are needing any audio/video transfers done, I recommend Mark at Audio Restorations.
Whenever possible I purchase my shipping and manufacturing supplies from other small, online businesses. So when you do business with me you are also helping them out as well!
I occasionally post updates about products and services on my Facebook Page
There are a lot of fun groups on Facebook dedicated to the 8 track tape. I belong to several, and have worked out discounts for anything in my webstore for members of the following Facebook Groups:
Come join the fun and save a little dough on your 8 track tape repair supplies too. In either group you can buy/sell tapes, discuss 8 track tape repair, general 8 track tape discussion and much much more. Details and coupon codes are available upon joining either group.
Looking for tapes to purchase? Be sure and check out the 8 Track Tape Store. They have the largest catalog of 8-track tapes for sale in the world!
Back when 8 Track Decks became available in vehicles, car manufacturers had tapes custom made with the car company names on them. You can find out the history of these tapes HERE at Auto 8 Track Shack.
If you have a classic car with an 8 track deck that needs restored. And maybe even a modern upgrade such as Bluetooth added, Barry at The 8 Track Repair Center is your guy.
