Enjoy analog VCR playback at its finest,

Test your tracking and heads after each VCR repair job using this master tape.

Repairing a VCR - vintage or recent model? Want to know if you've fully repaired it? Everything aligned? Playback perfect? Use my master tape choose Beta, VHS, VHS-C - purchase the right appropriate tape for your vcr. I have several models of tapes available. For example if you are repairing a BETA VCR - then you must buy the Beta tape. If you are repairing a VHS VCR then you must choose a VHS tape ...

Got a VCR that eats tapes? Fix that first! Don't put a master tape in a vcr that eats tapes. Once you are 100% positive that you have fixed it and is working perfectly - then you can check the final alignment of heads and tracking with my calibration tape.
