    It took a while to find it (man, I have too much stuff) but I did! I have a MRL 15 & 30 ips 2" cal tape...@ 250 nanowebers. I don't need it anymore as I sold my MCI JH 24 and don't ever plan to buy another. If this is interesting to you, what would you be willing to pay for it? Fats

    I can't say how old the test tape is. It came with my machine when I purchased it in '97. I have been keeping it indoors and in a dry place. It ran fine the last time I used it in April 2001. I can't check it out now as I don't have a machine to run it on, but I am sure it is ok..I would be willing to guarantee it..... Fats

    That's not a bad idea... in case you don't have it, the address for MRL is: 229 Polaris Avenue, Suite 4, Mountian View CA 94043-4598. The phone number is: (650) 965-8187. At least that the info that is on my test tape box. BTW have fun with the JH 24. They are great machines, they actually have better low end than the Otaris and better transports that the Ampex's. I just couldn't afford the maintenance on mine anymore so I had to find it a nice home. If you ever need parts check with Randy Blevins in Nashville, that's Mr. MCI to you, http://www.blevinsaudio.com. ..... Fats

    You can get your MRL tape from Randy as well. I believe that's what we did, IIRC.

    I'd highly suggest making a copy safety copies of the MRL. Tweek the bah-jesus out of your machine, de mag it, the whole nine. These saftey copies aren't as good as the orignal, but you can save a friend (or even yourself if someone wheels a big ass speaker in front of your O.G. MRL) in a pinch.
