  Publisher Specs Bros
  Language English
  Abstract This 7-Step Physical Inspection has been adapted from a submission SPECS BROS., LLC authored for the American National Standards Institute Subcommittee on Magnetic Tape. To avoid serious damage to recorded materials, this simple inspection process should be performed before putting a valuable tape on a machine for playback. It can also be used to perform an initial evaluation of the overall condition of older tapes in an archive.
