I have had a lot of inquiries over the years as to why some tapes seems to have a lot of audible static in them. While I don't know the scientific reason for this, I now have a solution for it. These are exactly the same as my regular "Drop In" 8 track foam pads. These have the center cut just like the regular ones. The difference is these have an Anti-Static laminate instead of the standard laminate.
Simply "drop" these into carts in which you are having problems with static. You will need to do one complete track change with these installed for best results. While I don't recommend using these in all your carts, these are a great addition to your 8 track tape repair tool box.
High density, medium firm white upholstery grade foam is used for longevity and "springiness". Foam will yellow over time, this is completely normal and has zero impact on performance. Pads are attached to a thin piece of plastic and cut down the center just like the originals.
Pads are a little over 5/16" thick, 1 and 15/16 in length and in between 1/4" and 5/16" in width (9/32" to be exact, just like the original factory ones).
