Not nearly as cleanly as the Variocontrast head. It gives you one-dial
numbers for contrast. No messing with CMY combinations. And to a degree,
good exposure consistency. Much better, anyway than with a color head. And
as I understand it, just works better than a color head. I've used both for
black and while VC printing, and there's no contest. Worth every penny.

If you use graded papers, no need for both.
