Quarter inch (1/4") reels are probably the most recognised open reel type in the world. Inexpensive open reel tape recorders became available around 1949, and were widely used for voice recording and music playback in the home and in schools before the Compact Cassette gradually took over. We can convert your quarter inch analog reel-to-reel tape archives to CD mp3, .wav or .aiff.

Domestic tape recorders used ¼-inch tape with speeds of 1⅞ inches per second, 3¾ inches per second, or 7½ inches per second. Faster speeds allowed better fidelity, but used more tape. Reels were up to seven inches in diameter, most commonly with plastic reels but metal was also used, which fitted over a splined ¼-inch shaft known as a cine spindle. The most common reel sizes were seven, five and three inches in diameter.
