Re: [ARSCLIST] Information on open reel players and tapes

In order of narrow to wide differences there are: 1) Ampex, 2) NAB and 3)
Euro standard widths. If you use a narrower playback head than the
recorded track width, you will experience the "fringing effect" which is a
low frequency boost below 100Hz.

And a wider playback head than the recorded track will increase tape hiss from the portion of the tape it's reading that is random magnetization (or worse, unerased material from a wider track format).
