Cylinders, lacquers, LPs, uncoated aluminum, wire, open reel (10-inch
pancakes--I have been reading that thread with interest!--7-inch and
5-inch reels), cassettes, CDs, DVDs (also some video: film, VHS and
Beta, DV). I'm sure I missed something. These will be packed in boxes
with like materials.
As to the storage environment, I haven't seen it(!). If you have any
suggestions about questions to ask, that would be helpful.
