Lives for gear

Old thread I know but in case somebody else is searching for info. The Tascam 22-2 was factory set up for Maxell UD 35-90 tape and that tape works best (unless of course a previous owner changed the bias for some other tape). The original manual also says that Scotch 207 will work well. I use only these two tapes on my machine. Both of those tape types are still as of now redily available on eBay. Scotch 207 is a little less high fi, and a bit more vibey than Maxell UD 35-90. No matter what any gearslutz here will tell you, it is a very cool little great sounding deck when in proper working order.
