Roland was making graphite coated tape loops up until a couple of years ago.
You can still find some shops that have them in stock, but they are few and far
between.  Another option is 8-track tapes, thats the only other tape I know of
that is graphite coated..  Once and a while you can find an old abba 8-track
that has bareley been used.  You can get a couple of years out of one eight

If you use regular 1/4 inch tape, it always gets stuck after a while.  The
graphite works best.
