For 8-track tape supplies, such as new foam pads and splices, we can highly recommend Jon at 8 Track Avenue. You will not be disappointed by the professional quality of his supplies. Jon also fixes tapes inexpensively.
For player repairs, we recommend Barry’s 8 Track Repair. They are the world’s only BBB Accredited shop dedicated to the repair and restoration of radios and 8 track players for classic cars from 1950 to 1980. He offers FM conversion on analog car radios, with other available features such as Bluetooth, USB reader and HD Radio, and proudly places a full one-year warranty on all work he performs.
For player repairs, we also recommend Dr. 8 Track, Henry Gabel, who has a large following in 8-track circles on Facebook. We have had personal experience with Henry. See contact information below:
We also hear that Kate’s Track Shack does good repair work, and their professionally refurbished players have an excellent reputation.
There are a lot of Facebook groups dedicated to 8-Track tapes, and you can get a lot of questions answered about do-it-yourself repairs in these groups. A full list of Facebook groups dedicated to 8-track tape hobbyists is here.
