RE: Head Demagnetizer

I just demagnetized the heads on my Sony TC-850 to hear if there was any difference. It's very subtle, but I've always noticed a small increase in output and a very slight increase at the high end. (The tape plays both louder and brighter.) Nothing dramatic, but noticeable. I've been demagnetizing heads since around 1960 and have always noticed this effect, particularly after I've been playing vintage tapes for a few hours.
