THE CASSETTE WORKS guarantee makes for good reading. That's because our guarantee fully covers our product. All of the cassettes we duplicate are unconditionally guaranteed to be free from defects in workmanship. We stand behind every cassette we make.

We have a zero-defect quality control system to support this commitment to you. Manufacturing is heavily monitored and controlled, in part by sophisticated computer technology, and also by personal inspection at various stages of completion.
