Subject:Re: [ARSCLIST] Tapes for testing wet play technique
Emitape 4 is acetape tape, shiny rust coloured backing and dry rust
coloured on the inner. You will see EMITAPe 4 printed on the shiny
backing tape periodically. I have seen them in 5, 7 and 10.5 inch
reels is that helps too.
I'll send pics on Monday when back at work!
