The Duplication.ca Guide to Cassette Box Sets and Double Cassettes

Double cassette cases at Duplication.ca

Do you have an album so big that one cassette alone could not possibly handle it? Double cassette releases are always exciting, but how do you go about packaging them? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.

Wet Tuna, released by Baked Tapes

Triple cassette box available from Duplication.ca

Multi-Cassette Box

This sleek design works like a Norelco case with the two cassettes sitting side-by-side. Its longer length makes it size comparable to that of a CD case, making it easy to store and easy on the eyes. An extra large double-sided J-card allows you to go nuts with the artwork, pack in as much detail and information as possible!

View the double cassette boxes on the online store

Our triple cassette boxes are even longer in length but keep the same width. Unlike the double cassette boxes they do not have posts.

"MTL Tapes" released by La Cohu and packaged in a Triple Cassette Album from Duplication.ca

Cassette Albums

If you’re a fan of the classic audio book packaging style, look no further than our cassette albums. These packages contain a transparent wraparound film for you to slip in a larger trapsheet in lieu of a J-card. We even have albums that hold up to EIGHT CASSETTES, if you can believe it.

Disso Vol. One

Double Norelcos

Double Norelcos are exactly as they sound– two Norelcos joined at the hip! They open on both sides “butterfly style,” meaning it facilitates two J-cards. This is perfect for releasing two separate albums that require different artwork in one package.

Hot Cassette Shell Colors for Summer Releases

ED. (Elektric Dreams) Pool Party cassette duplicated by Duplication.ca

 

When it comes to summer activities like barbecuing in the backyard, floating in the pool, or chilling in the park, you’ve gotta have your jams by your side. At Duplication.ca we’ll make your cassettes look as hot as they sound! Here are some awesome cassette shell colour suggestions for you to duplicate the hottest summer album or mixtape!

Blue tinted with square hubs cassette tape shell by Duplication.ca

Blue Tinted w/ Square Hubs
Normal-bias • Tabs out • Red leaders • Soft window

Calm like a blue ocean, this is a great shell for you to slow down R&B cuts and create a killer vapor beat. Just don’t bring your tape deck too close to the tide.

Silver platinum mirror cassette tape shell by Duplication.ca

Platinum Silver
Normal-bias • Tabs in • Clear leaders

The type of cassette for when you’re decked out and ready to party all night. It’s the visual equivalent of Diamond in the Back by Curtis Mayfield. Your cassette deck will never look classier!

Yellow cassette tape shell by Duplication.ca

Feel Good Yellow
Normal-bias • Tabs out • Red leaders

Really, this tape is what summer is all about: kicking it with friends, good vibes, and forgetting that you have work tomorrow until it’s too late. Pop it into your 4-track and record an improvised jangle pop demo with your buds.

Fire engine red tint cassette tape shell by Duplication.ca
Scorching Red Tinted
Normal-bias • Tabs out • White frosted leaders

If you really want to turn up the heat, try out these red tinted tapes. When placed against a light source they look like smouldering molten lava. Pairs well with 100mph convertible synthwave tracks and Chromatics-style disco guitar.

Glitter cassette tape shells by Duplication.ca

Glitter Tapes
Normal-bias • Tabs out • Leader colours vary

Whether it’s Fourth of July, Canada Day, or any opportunity where you can shoot off fireworks and keep your neighbours up all night, let it be soundtracked by our glitter shells. We have a wide variety of glitter colours— red, blue, white, green, silver, gold, and some of them all mixed together!

Cassette Round-Up: May 2019

Every day when we walk into the Duplication.ca offices we’re greeted with a pile of awesome cassette releases waiting to be mastered and duplicated. This May we still found ourselves in a transitional stage between a never-ending gloomy winter and burgeoning hot summer. In other words, a great month for zoning out to broad range of music blasting out of our cassette decks. Here are a few of our favourites:

Various Artists – “The Mondrians” c42 + c46

A double cassette release featuring an incredible line-up of ambient-electronic composers (Ian William Craig, Norm Chambers, Connect_icut, Alexandra Spence, to name a few) interpreting the works of de stijl artist Piet Mondrian. Packaged in our awesome side-by-side double cassette boxes.


Kool G Rap & 38 Spesh – “Son of G Rap” c56 

38 Spesh and Kool G are looking to bridge generations of New York rap bringing out certified OGs from N.O.R.E. to Dipset-affiliate Vado. NYC hip hop is alive and well on this album. Limited edition tapes came with gold horizontal obi-strip.


Benjamin Hinz – “DEEP” c22

If you like your psychedelic rock brooding and slow, like it’s struggling breathe under the pressure of the ocean’s weight, then check out this 22 minute ripper. Housed in our customizable printed Maltese Cross cassette boxes.


C. Reider – “…a trustable cloud” c54 

Composed entirely out of free sound banks, instruments, and effects processing available in web browsers. It’s an outsider electronic trip, with the J-card artwork suggesting that this is the soundtrack to a Google Deep Dream.


Surachai – “Come, Deathless” c62

Mixing elements of industrial, power electronics, and even acid house, “Come, Deathless” is richly textured and may scare you half to death. Sounds like Autechre woke up in a miserable mood.

Duplication.ca has all the accessories you need to package great looking and sounding cassettes in the comfort of your living room!

Blank Cassettes

Goes without saying that the first two items you’ll need are a cassette deck and cassette tapes. To say that we can supply with you with cassettes is an understatement— we have dozens of different shell colours and models to choose from and we can load them to the exact length of your album. Our normal-bias tape is intended to handle loud music, allowing you to boost the recording volume a little bit more before distortion.

Take a look around our blank cassette page and find which colour suits your music best!


Tab Plugs

Those who are experienced with multi-cassette duplicators know the hassle of placing scotch tape over every tab-out cassette and subsequently carefully peeling them off. For only $2.50 CAD Tab Plugs are a simple and inexpensive solution to this issue! Just pop in the plugs and your cassette recorder will override the tab recording lock.

Add Tab Plugs to your cart today!

Tape Deck Maintenance

You’ll want your cassettes to sound as good as they look, so it’s important to regularly clean and maintain your cassette deck. We have specialized tools in our online store for this exact purpose, such as our Level Calibration tape, Speed Calibration, and Cleaning Fluid. You can make your recording and playback decks sound brand new, and fix detrimental issues like wow and flutter.

All that being said, we have the equipment and facilities to supply wonderful sounding cassettes with gorgeous packaging. Our recording decks are fine-tuned to provide loud playback with a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz. If you want the best, look no further than our cassette duplication services.

October 2018 cassette round-up

On a personal note, I love October. I love the crisp autumn weather, I love secluding myself at night and binging on horror movies, and more than anything I love stepping on crunchy leaves while listening to new tapes on my Walkman. Here’s are some personal favourite Duplication.ca jammers from the month of October!

R. Stevie Moore – “Homers” c62

Outsider artist R. Stevie Moore returns with this reissue of his 1973 self-release. If you’ve never done the deep dive of the weird ‘n wild world of RSM this is as good as any place to start!

Andrew Weathers / Blaine Todd – Split c44

A melancholic but surprisingly relaxing split cassette that wavers between post-rock and experimental folk. Fans of Six Organs of Admittance and Jackie-O Motherfucker will love it.

Plastic Cactus – “Moth Eyes” c17

Atmospheric dry desert rock, and like a mirage it moves into psych ‘n surf territory. Full of rad Thee Oh Sees style riffs at 0.6x speed!

Courtney Barnett – “Tell Me How You Really Feel” c44

If you can’t dig Courtney Barnett you can’t dig nothin’. A+ Melbourne slackerdom, and if that doesn’t sell it for you, maybe the Kim Deal backing vocals will.

Appropriate Savagery – “Elegant In Its Brutality” c26
Anasisana – “Sad For The Rest of My Life” c34

Another gorgeous batch by California label Casement Exchange. Both tapes swing between chaos and beauty, must grabs for fans of minimalism. Can’t choose between the two of them, they’re both quintessential October graveyard wandering music.

September 2018 cassette round-up

Let’s take a gander at some of our favourite cassettes we listened to this past September. A very upbeat month before we get into the October gloom ‘n doom!

Lucid Sound Driver – “Night Light” c42

Instrumental dream-pop that’s sure to set the vibe right. Grab your Walkman and save this one for the last night bus home.

Coping Skills – “Worst New Music” c30

Not only is this possibly the best album title and cover art this year, the music also rips! Teenage Fanclub for the internet content mill age.

Shoshana Rosenberg – “A Gold Ring in a Pig’s Snout” c30

Beautiful cassette consisting of revolving bass clarinet tones. The room sound is audible, giving an impression of claustrophobia relating to its thesis of female oppression.

Velveteen Echo – “Submarine” c15

Dream-like and hazy indie pop from Miss Champagne Records. A little Galaxie 500, a little Grouper. Love their pad print design too!

Heathers – “Midnight is a Place” c30

Montreal 90s rock revivalists return with their second cassette release. At the right time and in the right place, this would be classic Sub Pop canon.

August 2018 cassette round-up

Hello all tapeheads! Here’s a look at some of our favourite cassettes fell into our production line this month. Some are funky, some survived the pit, and one in particular is very kvlt.

Mortiis – “The Song of a Long Forgotten Ghost” c58

This is a reissue of Mortiis’ debut demo, a big departure from his black metal work in Emperor, instead opting to explore funeral dirge synthesis. Dig the dark forest etching on the matte black cassettes.

Wasterr – “Tape A” c9

It may be on the short side, but this cassette packs a hell of a punch. Melbourne garage rockers singing about fighting dads and smooching boys.

Moon Rise – S/T c40

You’ll have some trouble describing Moon Rise’s sound. Yes, it’s aesthetic, but it has the daring approach of PC Music, and the retro party vibes of The Avalanches. If that isn’t cool enough, check out their shimmering gold cassette.

Firearm – Dravecky c12

Bay Area hardcore as loud and tough as Dave Dravecky himself (SF Giants legend who broke his arm during a wild pitch!)

Satanic Panic ’81 – “The Sacrifice Hunter” c32

Synthwave maestros Satanic Panic emulate 80s horror VHS vibes in their soundtrack to The Sacrifice Hunter, a horror film so rare that… it may not even exist. Awesome use of our clear vinyl cassette boxes!
