Default Re: How to set the speed on cassette decks.

Konig used to make a strobe-style cassette which worked quite well, though Paul's method is superior. The difficulty is finding a really good deck to record the tone on, of course.
Beware the CD vs cassette play-off. I had a machine in the other day with a genuine Carpenters musicassette in it. It was playing fast, so I decided adjustment was needed. I popped a known good tape in, and it played fine. The customer's tape played fast on a good machine and was obvioulsy recorded out of tolerance!
