Hi, Steve,

My recollection back in the day (70s, 80s?) when Capitol bought out 
Audio Devices/Audiotape was that there were new formulations with the Q 
number. I have seen some of this back-coated tape go sticky shed like 
many of the other brands.

I am not aware of a listing for Audiotape/Capitol (nor Ampex/Quantegy) 
like we have for 3M and IG Farben/Agfa/BASF at the AES HC website.

Quality tape transfers -- even from hard-to-play tapes.
