Default Tails out tape storage

I just received a pre-recorded tape that I purchased from Horch House. It indicates that you should store your tapes tail out to avoid channel bleeding of some sort. While I don’t have a great deal of these, do those of you that have tape collections store them tails out. It’s obviously not a big deal, either way. Curious.

Default Tails out tape storage

It is a pretty big deal. The thought around tails-out is that it creates post echo, much harder to detect than the pre-echo caused by tails-in storage.

Thank you. That makes total sense. While I have purchased 20 SM-911 and SM-932 on metal reels ready for recording, I’ve been waiting for the install of the C-2700 for its DAC and phono preamp improvements before doing any additional recordings. The ones I have, I can certainly transfer to other reels so they are tails out. I have noticed on one of my recordings that print through just before the main signal starts playing.
