I had John French make me a 4-channel 8-track head assembly for my 
"FrankenSony" pair of APR-5003V recorders that lets me play four 
tracks simultaneously. The really neat thing about this head is that 
I have infinite height adjustment without changing the head azimuth 
or zenith, so I can tease out any track snippets as long as they are 
at least 0.021 inches wide (or have adjacent silence totalling that 
dimension).

I've used a similar technique to recover the "center" track from some paper 
based tapes that had been recorded on a Brush "Sound Mirror" then reused on a 
two track machine.

It is very useful to be able to probe old tapes for hidden recordings or to 
eliminate artifacts of badly aligned recorders.
