Current Ship Time Estimate:  7 Business Days



Hello Customers,

I want to thank everyone for the continued support you have shown through
this very difficult time.
Our home flooded on 5-27-16 and was a TOTAL Loss.
We left the home with 1 plastic bag each, and NOTHING else.
Krista is still in the Houston area and I am in Kentucky. I still have not found
a permanent place to live. Krista is 36 and I am 66.

I started this belt business 9 years ago selling Nakamichi Factory Belts only.
Business was very good. At the request of my customers, I started adding
additional kits for All Brands of Cassette and R/R Belts.

Since business was good, there was never time to "update" the website.
A shopping cart  was never added to the site because SOME customers,
received a Discount and this allowed them to enter their correct purchase price.
This could not be done with a shopping cart, WITHOUT issuing a "Discount Refund"
which would be a added step to the "Purchase Process".

Since the Flood in May, Krista has done her best to keep up with shipping on Orders Received.
Please remember, we notified All Customers of the situation and explained the the shipping process would be delayed, and All orders would have to be physically taken to the Post Office.

Any discrepancy's in our "Ship Time Estimate" is totally Fred's Fault.
I am responsible for keeping the website "up to date".
With the lack of communication between Krista and myself, because we no longer work from the same location, has been difficult. I take Full Responsibility.

I am now involved in the business again on a LIMITED BASES.
Krista is now forwarding all INFORMATION and INQUIRY REQUEST to me, so I can Respond.
This will give her more time to make kits, print labels and take to the Post Office.

We are still NOT doing Research for kits that are NOT on the website, but will as soon as I get
a permanent Home.

Tapeheads Discount: 20% off on All Premium Belt Kits

Krista and I are doing our Very Best, to get things back to Normal.

REMEMBER, Marrs Communications is your ONLY source for Belts Manufactured in Japan !

Thanks Again for your Business !

Fred & Krista M.

Thank you for your continued Support during the Loss of our Home
due to Flooding in Texas on May 27th !
Krista and I are aware of some shipment delays during these times and we
appreciate your patience ! ( )

Krista has been totally running the business by herself while I have been
dealing with the Loss of our Home, and has fallen behind in Shipping
in a few cases.
She will continue to live in Texas, while I am moving to Lexington, Ky.
My son and I are loading the Truck this weekend and will be leaving for
Kentucky the 1st of next week.

I will be back to work at Marrs, as soon as I find a new home in Kentucky.
As soon as I am settled, our Research for belt kits for Rare Tape Decks will

Factory and Custom Manufactured Belt Kits will continued to be our Focus
( Like our Factory Nakamichi Kits ) in the future.

Marrs Communications: HOW IT ALL STARTED


In March of 2006, there was a desperate need worldwide for Belts that would work

correctly in Nakamichi Cassette Decks. Unlike other Cassette Deck builders,

Nakamichi manufactured their own " Tape Transport ".  (The parts that moves the tape)

This is a Precision Transport unlike any other, even today.


This transport demanded a Capstan Belt that must be made to exact Nakamichi Specifications

or the machine would not meet published Performance Specifications. (wow/flutter)

After a year for research, Marrs had these capstan belts Custom Manufactured in Japan.


The first order of belts was received from Japan on June 29, 2007


At the request of customers, I started adding additional Brands to the kits I offered.

In most cases the Capstan Belt included in my kit for "All Brands", are manufactured in

the same Factory, and are not available from any other Belt Seller.


Marrs Communications is the only Source for these Custom Factory Belts.





My O.E.M. Factory in Japan held a Contract with Nakamichi and supplied them with all of their Belt needs.

This included Belts for the Nakamichi assembly line, and parts department. 


All Nakamichi Factory Belts are the same O.E.M. Dimensions that Nakamichi demanded

and were installed on Your Machine at the Nakamichi Factory.



Marrs, Provides the FRESHEST, _ Highest QUALITY, _ Best FITTING

Belts Available, from ANY Source, at ANY Price, _ GUARANTEED !


Straight Talk,  Quality Belts,  1st Class Customer Service.

Fred, your D2 8096 are Very Good



11-8-15 Customer Service

I have to admit, yours is the finest customer support I have experienced in a long time.

Thank you so much for all your help.

Cheers, Ralph P


9-7-15 Belt Performance

I just installed one of your Nakamichi D-3,  ZX-9 capstan belts on a friend's deck, and the W&F is now

consistently below 0.04% DIN peak, and near 0.03% most of the time. This is better than Nak specs !

Cheers,  Sam
