Collection: TAPEs

The cassette tape was one of the first technologies that allowed us to share music and recordings on a much wider scale

Compact Cassettes contain two miniature spools, between which the magnetically coated, polyester-type plastic film (magnetic tape) is passed and wound—essentially miniaturizing reel-to-reel audio tape and enclosing it, with its reels, in a small case (cartridge)—hence "cassette".
