Peace,
anyone know of where to find replacement tape cartridges for the Univox EC100 or Melos tape echo? (they both use the same tape).

thanks

tariq,
first of you simply keep eye on ebay.com ... hard to find, but you may get luck.
You can try this (also I have no idea myself), but you can try to call the phone number and ask. Here's the link where I've found it:
Univox Restoration and Modification,
the quote:
Replacement Tapes that need to be modifieed to work are available from Dictaphone's web site. The model number is 0645180 (180 Sec.) and is labled "Announce Cartridge", they are $9.50 plus postage. The erase head on the tape will not make it in the slot of the Dictaphone tape cartridge ( Too Narrow) and one must remove about 1/8" piece of plastic from the side to allow the erase head to come close to the tape. If you call dictaphone at 1-877-805-5903 ask for Valerie Carlson, she is aware of what we are using the tapes for.
Dictaphone site: www.dictaphone.com

Is the Melos tape Echo you refer to above the same as the Melos "echo Chamber"?

Rewinding for used cartridges like Apollon HD5000 and Dictaphone answering cassettes is possible, look at www.tapeloops.tk for more info.

Do not hesitate, there is still hope for the future of the old Melos Echo Chambers and Univox machines.

Cheers,

It's still possible to find replacement tapes, you just have to know where to look... Have you ever heard of "Playtapes"?

More info here:
