Splicing Kit with Sensing Foil, White Leader. Splicing Block, and Splicing Tape by TME™
This SPLICEKIT-FOIL is a great way to get the necessities for doing truly professional splices on 1/4" tape! Features a full size professional 5.75" long x 1" wide TME S25N aluminum alloy splicing block (same ones used by US Congress Library archives.) The TME S25N is made of a special long lasting hard aluminum alloy, rather than cheap soft aluminum you find in other blocks on the market. Those blocks get worn out in no time. A full sized block is far easier to splice on than a smaller, cheaper block and especially a block without our proprietary center groove. The TME S25N block has this proprietary center groove which locks your tape into place for good splices and is harden industrial anodized for a lifetime of splicing.
You also get TWO rolls of TME AC1S89B1 splicing tape, one roll of AC1LWH500R opaque solid white leader tape, and one 54 foot roll of real metal sensing foil for tape decks using foil triggering for sensing. The sensing foil is not the "metalized plastic" stuff floating around which is pretty much junk or should we say "less than adequate"... Use any stainless steel uncoated safety razor blade. Always use stainless steel or you may get a pop on your recording from a magnetized blade. Also, use un-coated blades because many blades have a coating of oil on them from manufacturing.
