    ...for posterity's sake, the auction description reads:

    1" 12 Track record head (I think-see pic)
    Relapped by Branch and Appleby in 1987
    In good cosmetic order
    May be for revox/studer machine
    Used and sold as seen with no returns
    be sure its good for your purposes


    Currently 5. He seems to have two of them. I'm half-tempted to snag one as a collectable.

    I suspect that's for a data recorder rather than an audio recorder (maybe).

    Sorry for the dupe post. The site seems to have burped (or belched)

    Could be, though I'd have expected a higher track density for a data recorder (12 tracks on 1/2" for example, or 64 tracks on 1"). There was such a format, though - Tom Scholtz supposedly had a Scully set up to use it, and I remember heading that Frank Zappa used it too. When he came to remaster some of that stuff, they couldn't get hold of a compatible headblock, so they used half of a 24-track Studer fitted with a custom-built set of 1" tape guides.
