BASF 910/911

Hi all

Can anybody tell the difference between 910 and 911 tape?

Thanks, Han

What is 910? I can't find it in any catalogs. I've gone through a few reels of SM911 and I like it a lot. Seems to be a little quieter then 456 and has a slightly different midrange. It doesn't saturate as quickly. Possibly my favorite tape right now.

I'm unfamiliar with 910... if they're following the numbering systems from the now defunct Scotch or Ampex companies... the 910 would be a thinner backed version of 911.

If you're talking about 900 vs. 911... 900 is an 'elevated level' formulation [more level, less noise kinda idea].

Personally, I quite like 911 on smaller track width events, like a 2" 24 or 2" 16 track, and 900 on larger track width formats... like 2" 8 track or 1/2" 2 track [etc.]

Best of luck...

Thanks guys for responding. I bought a pile of 2" tapes from a studio and there are a number of Basf 910 tapes.

I searched for 910 on Google and only found this:

Anybody who knows more?

Peace, Han
