Petra cassettes

Post by Diehardpetrafan:) » Thu Jun 24, 2021 7:27 am

Is there anyway to find Petra tapes that aren't $16 a piece?? I have CDs from Back to the Street to
Petra Praise 2: We Need Jesus. But I would like to replace them all with tapes. So if anyone wants to make a trade or sell them or something, maybe like 16 for all the tapes (2 is about the price of a cassette normally…) instead of $128 for all of them :roll:
Let me know if you'd like to do either a trade or sell them.
They're all in good condition, they play fine, only Unseen Power has a crack on the front of the case.
I'm no longer looking for Beyond Belief.

Why on earth would you ever want to listen to tapes?

I have only one Petra cassette: Beyond Belief. I have all the albums on CD and some on vinyl.

My cassette is just sitting there and will likely never get played again so I am willing to send it to you free of charge. Just PM me to make arrangements.

Are you still collecting tapes? I have Petra 1974 & Washes White Than on tape. I think I paid $14 (Australian dollars) for WWT back in 1996 they were already becoming expensive back then.

I am, actually, but I'm not looking for those two at the moment. If I change my mind I'll let you know. Thanks though!!

Years ago I was at a Stryper show in Houston and was chatting up the other patrons around me. One guy was also a Petra fan and we started talking about our favorite albums. The conversation started out nice, but then the dude said something peculiar. I mentioned that I did not like the overall sound of a few Petra CD releases and he said that he took his original cassettes, remastered them (I bet he just ran them through a basic EQ), and burned them to CD. I mentioned to him that there is no way this could sound better than a cd and he wouldn't hear it. In his view the best sound was achieved by tweaking the EQ on cassettes. So....I guess that is a reason some folks listen to cassettes in the year 2021. (I stayed away from the guy during the concert as he said a few other things that made me question his sanity)

I don't mind a speck how they sound! I just like novelty of listening to a tape. That's all

I do kind of miss the test tone(s) at the beginning of cassettes. It was a good forewarning if you had your volume turned up too loud.
