Sussex University's Massive Collection of Bob Copper's Priceless English Folk Music

We were so proud to have been chosen by the University of Sussex to digitalise and convert their priceless collection of beautiful audio reel to reel magnetic recordings from Bob Copper. We’ve also scanned hundreds of images from Sir Richard Attenborough’s photo collection which he left to Sussex University. 

Bob Copper, who has died aged 89, was a leading member of the famous singing Copper family of Rottingdean, East Sussex, and an important collector of English folksongs. His earliest musical memories were of sitting around the fire singing with his father, Jim, and his grandfather James Copper, who was born in 1845.

We're Proud of Our Service!


We are proud to have repaired and restored many hundreds of audio tapes of the years.

Typically we see the need for audio cassette tape repair due to damaged and broken film. Perhaps they are wrinkled, twisted or torn? Sometimes they jam  when you have tried to play them.

We sincerely hope that they aren’t but if they are, there’s no need to worry. We can help there. We’ll do our very best to provide you with cassette repair

At one end of the spectrum, it could be careful resplicing that’s needed. At the other end it could be something more technically demanding such as sticky tape syndrome. Sticky-shed syndrome is a relatively common condition caused by the breakdown of the magnetic tape.

Sometimes your tapes would have been affected by a non naturally occurring event. It’s not uncommon to receive calls from someone saying that their precious compact cassette with a recording of their grandmother has had tea split over it. Often this was just as they were about to insert it into a cassette deck.

Sometimes this results in a request for an  audio cassette tape repair.

We’ve also seen the same on many occasions with reel to reel audio tape. Once penetrating the cassette case, it can do a lot of damage if not treated soon enough. 

We offer this service for most formats of audio – including compact cassette repair, reel to reel (including ¼ inch tape), compact cassette, vinyl record, audio tape, micro cassette, cassette tape and digital audio tape. We are sometimes also asked to look at recovering audio from damaged CDs, though it is not very easy or possible.

We love offering our audio cassette player repair service . One example of such a customer was a family from Newcastle who had audio recordings of their grandfather talking about his role as a machine gunner in the battle of the Somme in 1916. In the recording he gave a riveting and spellbinding account of life in the trenches. Both interesting and sad, it was an honour to have brought this recording back to life.       

How We've Helped People Over the Years

We’ve also proudly partnered many organisations with the local history audio projects where locals have been interviewed and their memories of the town or village have been captured for future generations to enjoy. Two such examples include Redbridge Council and the local sleepy village of Ditchling in Sussex as part of their oral history projects.

Were were also proudly chosen to digitalise a massive collection of Bob Copper’s reel to reel audio recordings by Sussex University. They include priceless open air recordings of his folk songs being performed live by his family in Sussex pubs in the 50’s and 60’s. That was in the period where pubs had so much lively local human entertainment. It was truly an honour to have been chosen for that prestigious project – Fantastic!

Sometimes we’ve been asked to supply audio cassette repair kits or audio cassette tape repair tape, but we don’t supply such things. On balance we’ve learnt that until the issue has been examined, you cannot know if such a kit would even resolve the issue. The repair work type can vary considerably. Nor do would we undertake an audio cassette tape player repair but we often see cases where people’s tapes are literally stuck in cassette players too. I n such cases we do our best to extract them.

Our Promise To Deliver A Quality Audio Cassette Player Repair Service

Whatever your issue, let us take a look at your cassette repair and we can give you an estimate to fix the problem where practicable. There’s no need to understand new stuff. A splicing block, cotton swab for pinch rollers and erase heads, a pressure pad – these are complex things for most to grasp. We’ll save you the trouble of getting an audio tape repair kit and starting from scratch to learn how to repair broken tapes.

The great thing is that assuming we’ve been able to resolve the broken audio tape issue perhaps by splicing the tape, you’ll have the opinion of transferring your audio tape to a new digital format such as an MP3 or a WAV file. Your precious family recordings will survive and your grandchildren will be able to enjoy the experience. If unsure what type of audio tape you have – have a look at our dedicated section which explains the various types.
