Hi Jonathan,

Like any magnetic audio tape, analog or digital, it will all come down 
to the storage conditions the tape was stored in over time. In my 
experience, here in Southern California, Scotch 206 has been extremely 
stable. Shai Drori has had just the opposite experience with 206 in 
Israel. Factory slitting issues can be detected by observing the tape 
running through the transport at very slow speed. Since you show the 
tape on a Studer 810, try playing a short section the tape at 3-3/4IPS 
and observing it. Slitting irregularities can often be measured with 
calipers. If slitting irregularities are the problem, I can give you 
some hints on how to get the best transfer possible, either on or off-list.

If SS or SBS are not evident, you can try lubricating the oxide side of 
the tape. I use TAPE LAST form Last Factory. Richard Hess uses D-5 with 
good results. DO NOT scrape the tape across the stationary tape lifters 
under any circumstances. The exception would be PLAY mode where the tape 
lifters are not involved but the tape is coming into contact with the 
heads and guides. For handling, (fast-forwarding, rewinding, etc.) the 
tape should come in contact with bearing surfaces only. Obviously, there 
are a lot of possibilities here so, to a great extent, I'm spitting into 
the wind.

Cheers,

Corey
