Very cool concept! Maybe outside of the realm of practicality but would be awesome to have an oled/led matrix that can scroll across where the tape would be.

love the concept, very original.

you're probably going high end aluminum custom, but i'd love to see maybe a black or smoke grey polycarb insert to represent the tape. would help show off the cutouts of the front of the case as well on the lighter colors.

There is 4 screws for the Top and the bottom case, and 6 for the plate
and might add some extra for the case, depends on the prototype

Thank you for your feedback, as for the tape i thought about using frosted PC with an LED strip n the back
but i don't want it to scream RGB

will try to do a PC tape and see how it will goes   :thumb:

How is this supposed to mount? You have plate screws AND resting points for poron (or another material), I'm a little confused  ;)

Please consider clear and/or smokey polycarbonate cases, most cassettes I own are see through plastic.

it is a top mount with gaskets, that was the best choice i found for the vibration
but i guess im going to change it to top mount

I was first to this awesome project, I have my right!

To be honest, because I do want to provide further feedback and help OP if possible, nothing else.

This is a genuinely cool design, it's got some good nostalgia feels too.
My two suggestions,
  • Seconding @lecorsair, I think it would look fantastic to represent the magnetic ribbon. My personal thought was to use smoked polycarbonate, backlit by RGB LEDs in a chasing pattern.
  • Color wise, I think it would be great to see a medium/dark, non-metallic gray akin to some of the high end Maxell and TDK cassettes that were available.

That side profile is super nice. Little confused about the mounting, but I’m sure whenever you get a proto
 It will be easier to explain. Speaking of proto, any plans for ordering one?

Mate a quick suggestion. I think it would look nicer to have 2 pieces of brass weight instead of a single one with that oval in the middle, it will be more reminiscent of old tapes.

Also, adding other colors for the weight might improve the overall aesthetic.

really cool looking design!  Have you considered flipping the design 180 it so that the tape part is on the backside?  this makes the back of the keyboard more interesting, and the front just have the little nubs on the other side of the cassette.  You could even extend the lip downwards some more to be part of the feet design.
