    Safety Master Pancakes - The Tall Stack!

    One of my employees helping me resurrect safety masters that have been archived on "pancakes" from 1970's and 80's at a studio.

    First you gotta very carefully get off the old masking tape at 4 corners then put the pancake onto new RMGI reels and screw em together without the tape getting messed up.
    Then get the original tear sheet off the old box and onto a nice new red box, neat and tidy with all the old studio info in tact.

    It's a tedious time consuming process......
    ​​​​​​​Goes a bit faster with the power screw drivers but still an all afternoon task even with two of us working on it.

    But what great sound, best DSOTM i ever heard, not to mention Beatles, Savoy Brown Dr. John, Little Feat, Neil Young, Traffic ,Joplin, JA, and the best Stevie Ray, Voodoo Chile and Tin Pan Alley and so many more......

    SCORE!

    Iíve done that recently. This is much easier with a master recorder where you can use plates and reels. You just put the pancake on a plate, rewind the tape on a reel, remove the plate and put a second reel and you are set. I have a batch of pancakes that should arrive in a few weeks time and the set of empty reels (10.5 and 12 inch) is ready for the transfer.

    Actually I need the tapes on proper reels because at shows you have to be ready for upright deck playback under any variable show condition.

    I've shown with my decks right next to a huge 60a power transformer and also under an A/C vent that was blowing Arctic air directly on the deck, it was literally freezing to the touch.

    Gotta have your phazers set to kill, not to stun....
