  1. Now, that’s lovely! never imagine you can put pb heads like this. Wonder how is sounding, and how the tape is pressed on the head with constant pressure. Amazing!

    • This dual head mechanism came directly from microcassette and open reel method. One head would engage the tape depending on the direction it is played. It can provide separate azimuth setting with each head and if both heads were aligned at 90, it would mean that both sides were aligned. 4-track heads were also the same but only required one side. Like dual head, if one side is aligned at 90, both sides will be aligned.
