As for mixing tape brands, I know of no data regarding this issue.

The data are purely anecdotal – yet compelling. When one experiences a head clog, it is almost always shortly after switching tape brands. This alone is a strong enough correlation that makes a compelling argument for the practice. Conversely, there are those who switch brands and never have a problem. This makes hard data impossible to quantify.

For me, I have three Sony cameras that have run only Sony tapes for the past cumulative 3,000 hours of head time. I run the cleaning tape every 50-hours and never experienced a “clean tapes” error or a dreaded head clog.
