Subscribe to Tape Op Magazine!

Magazine Subscription Options

One Year (6 Issues) - FREE

Free subscriptions are available in digital format to anyone in the world with a valid email address. All subscribers will receive each new issue of Tape Op directly in their email inbox in a "protected" PDF format (requires nothing special to read - we just very lightly watermark it with your email address), as well as view all of their current and past delivered issues directly at tapeop.com.

If you live in the U.S., we will also send you a paper copy of each new issue via good ol' snail mail. Basic print subscriptions are indeed free, but not 100% guaranteed to arrive, or may arrive torn. However, 98% arrive just fine. First class paid print subscriptions (see paid subscriptions below) are guaranteed delivery.

On the fence? Read a free sample issue and see how you like it.

 
One-Year (streaming web access to every available issue, past and present) - $5.99

Get complete online "streaming" access to every Tape Op article and issue in our archives (currently back to Tape Op #20 from the year 2000) through the web on your desktop, laptop, and mobile devices.

View any article in a clean text-only web format (likely better for smartphones), or in it's original print layout directly on tapeop.com using our shiny new HTML5 PDF viewer.

Use the subscribe button directly above-right to create a basic subscription with us, then automatically proceed to paypal to securely activate your full archive subscription (either with an actual paypal account or with a credit card).

Necessary tech disclaimer: Our magazine viewer uses fancy new web technology that renders as exact HTML version of each issue's print layout directly on our site. This should work just fine with any desktop or laptop of recent years, and also the newest tablets and smartphones, but it will likely crash mobile devices that are more than a couple years old!

If your sole intent is to read old issues on an older mobile device, please be okay with only being able to access the text-only versions!

Unlimited personal downloads of all available digital issues, past and present - $99.99

Our super ultimate everything-but-the-kitchen-sink subscription package. Purchase of our box set gives you instant ownership over every digital issue we have currently available (currently back to Tape Op #20 from the year 2000).

This means you can download personal subscriber copies of any issue for offline viewing and (theoretically) infinite storage. Digital ownership also means you have full online "streaming" access to each issue (you can try out our mag viewer here), which on a faster internet connection can be more convenient for quickly jumping around between issues and articles.

Exclusively with a purchase of our Digital Box Set, your streaming access will not expire nor need to be renewed, and will be available to you for as long as we continue to offer the service on our site.

Use the subscribe button directly above-right to create a basic subscription with us, then automatically proceed to paypal to securely purchase and activate your complete digital box set (either with an actual paypal account or with a credit card).
