Prices for 2020

Cassette prices (except for ECP Bulk C-40, C-46) depend on tape length. The table shows prices in Russian roubles for a recorded cassette of 21—40 min. If the tape length is less than 21 min., subtract 3 RUR. If the length is 41—60 min., add 10 RUR, for 61—80 min. — 20 RUR, for 81—100 min. — 30 RUR. The exact price can be found using calculator.

NB! Tape length is calculated as the length of the longer side increased by 30 sec. and multiplied by 2. Thus, if the longest side of the master record is 30 min., a C-61 cassette (61 min. total length = (30 min. + 30 sec)*2) is required.

Please upload your master files as 2 tracks, one per side: A.wav and B.wav. Joining separate tracks into master files — from 300 RUR, depending on complexity.

If the tapes are ordered without recording, the price is reduced by 10 roubles.
