I need some Quantegy tape

Quantegy 456 1/2" tape. It seems to go for 50$ almost everywhere. Anyone know where to get it cheaper?

Unfortunatley, that's just the price of it now, i can sympathise with, i have to buy it too, i know you can by one pass stuff, but some of that can end up fuked or shedding, so i would NOT go down that path IMO, i dont think it's worth it!..just a false economy

Hope this helps

I find the price varies by only a few quid here and there, i'm in the u.k., so i buy it here. Hope you get sorted out, rock n' roll!

You're still 10 bucks richer.
