Mute erase head of a Casette-deck so there is no gap when recording tape loops

last update: 31 January 2023


These are instructions for modding a casette decks erase head to be manually disabled. This is done for when you want to record tape loops. There is a distance between the erase head and the record head, becase of this distance there is a gap in the recording when recording tape loops.
With this mod you can record a tape loop, and thenjust before you you press the stop button you can press the "mute erase head" button so the tape wont be erase for a verry short time and the loop wil be fully recorded.
I have a Scherwood dd-2135C casette deck, but it should be a similar mod for another deck.
