I've received 3 reels of Ampex 456 1/4" that have some white growth that
seems more 'salty' than 'mouldy' and wondering if anyone has some ideas on
whats going on here?
I have posted a picture of tape on the reel here:
The tapes were recorded in Dallas in 1977 and have been (i believe)
non-environmentally controlled storage ever since. The boxes are the old
406 type and dont have any growths at all.
I look forward to reading your comments.
