Reel to reel tape (or open reel tape) came in many shapes & sizes. The most common to the average consumer was 1/4″ tape. Reel-to-reel tape also came in other sizes but was reserved mostly for the professional recording market. To determine what you have, simply measure the tape, the actual tape not the reel. It should measure 1 quarter of an inch in width. (Not thickness). We transfer all 1/4″ reel-to-reel tape to CD.

The Reel Size

Next, reel-to-reel tape came on many different sizes of reels. Most common among these are 3 inch, 5 inch and 7 inch. Larger 10 1/2 inch reels were also made but not as common to the home user. RecordingHow to measure your reel to reels studio demo tapes and radio/ television programs more commonly used these sizes. Here at Curtis Media Transfer we transfer all reel sizes. To determine what size reel you have, lay it down on a table and measure across the surface of the reel as close to the middle as possible, as if you are measuring a plate. Your measurement may not be exactly the measurements in our price-list,  but it will be very close to one of them. (See photo above) Pricing here at Curtis Media Transfer is based primarily on reel size. Reel-to-reel tapes that are not full of tape are priced by how much tape, not how big the reel is.

Determining The Cost

We charge by the size of the reel; So the price according to the size reel you have plus return shipping will be your total cost for transferring your tapes.

You do have an option to buy:
Duplicate CD’s for family & friends.

If you would like to get extra CD’s to share with friends and family they are only $9 each. Also, if you want to make the copies yourself go ahead, we do not do anything to your CD’s to prevent you from making your own copies. Read more about copies.


Once you have decided what you have, and decided you would like to have it transferred to CD go ahead and fill out the order form and give us a call 1-800-617-8273. Even if you don’t have any questions this may help you feel better about sending your tapes off to “some website”. Of course this is totally optional.

We only use100 year archival,
professional grade Compact Disc media
