Audio reel to reel (open reel) tape
followed the wire recording format and early reel to reel recordings were made on steel tape.  In the late 1920s audio tape was made with a ferrite oxide coating on a paper backing (Pfleumer).  Audio tape was later made with a backing made of acetate (AGFA, 3M) or polyester.  Light will go through the side of a tape reel if it is acetate and will not if the material is polyester.  In 1898 it was found that adding a DC bias improved recordings, in 1921 it was found that adding an AC bias greatly improved recordings, but it was not until 1940 that the widespread commercial value of AC bias was realized and was standardized for modern audio tapes.  Ampex and others offered “modern” tape recorders by 1948.
