Cassette Tapes-Classic Music Makers on T-shirt Prints
Way back in the 90’s, people would use cassette tapes to play, record and save audio. It has a 60-minute playing time with two sides. Cassettes are magnetic tape sound format that consists of two miniature spools where magnetically coated plastic tape would pass and wound around. This is what people of the 90’s use when they want to play music or record some audio. Even famous artists had their music recorded on cassette tapes. So instead of buying an album in CDs, you’ll find albums in compact cassettes. Well, these days, cassette tapes are no longer used or maybe a few people still do. But it became a relevant part of technology and music. Hence, it is never forgotten. As a matter of fact, they became a good subject for design and arts.
