Question I need belt sets for the following cassette decks. Could you recommend good sources?

Hello! I want to get new belt sets and perhaps pinch rollers for the following units: Marantz CP430, Marantz PMD222, Tascam Porta Two, Superscope CD330. What sources would you recommend, as I don't know which sites are trustworthy and offer good quality belts? 🙄

I bought belts for a CD330 from an eBay seller in Germany called 'phonohifishop', the deck has been working really well since fitting the new belts despite my clumsiness with getting access to the underside of the mechanism! This is the only belt replacement I have done so I have nothing else for comparison.

Regards,

Roger

I have been happy with belts from https://webspareparts.com/en-gb

I've bought from this firm, and the TH site members like the company as well: https://fixyouraudio.com/

^The company is in the EU, so easy for you in NL. He's answered questions via email to me and seems to be genuine.

My experience with Ebay belts has been terrible. I am of the opinion that 9/10 are poor quality / poor fit. I'm sure there are one or two decent sellers, but I haven't met them.

Web Spare Parts have been good for me as well.

Thank you very much guys! I will likely go for webspareparts as they have belts for two of the units and offer free shipping. I am not very sure of myself if I can make a good estimate and buy belts based on size from fixyouraudio so I will likely search on ebay for the Marantz units. I mainly want to get a pinch roller for the Superscope unit. Maybe for the tascam too. But this was quite helpful already!!!
