Tape archiving

During the golden age of tape recording manufacturers offered various methods to archive your tape in a well organised manner. Plastic boxes offer superior protection for your tape. These systems allow the boxes to be clicked together forming an elegant and practical system. It was a solution for the home recording enthusiast so these systems were made for the 13, 15 and 18 cm reels. Here are some examples from the late 60's and early 70's from manufacturers like AGFA, BASF, SONY and TELEFUNKEN (the inventor of the tape recorder)
