Acceptable tape stock age
How old is acceptable for tape stock?? I am looking at some Quantegy 456 1/2" from 2003, new and sealed.
Is it likely to be ok assuming it's been stored well? Should I buy only recently manufactured tape?
Any advice would be most gratefully welcome as this is a new area for me (having just bought an Otari MTR-12 II half-track 1/2". Hooray!!).
