I just finished a transfer from home tape that had a 58.5 hz hum which, when

same performers a year adjacent.

is to set the mains hum (and harmonics) frequencies (almost always captured
in the recording process) to 50 or 60 Hz (and multiples for the harmonics).
Hum is the only real historical information regarding recording speed, and,
