I am transferring a large collection of cassettes and have a few that seem to have scrape flutter. These tapes are from the early and mid 70’s. I have tried playing them on several decks and there where no changes. I tried reshelling them thinking there might be some drag in the shell causing it. No change. I also tried baking them but I did not expect that it would help. It did not.
I have a Studer A710 that allows me to access the sides of the cassette shell. I was thinking of drilling a hole in the left side of the cassette and spray something that might help lubricate the supply tape path.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
