The Han D Mag (or the
Han-D-Mag) is the very best tape head and guide demagnetizer, also
known as a head degausser, you can buy and is a necessary accessory for tape deck maintenance along with good head cleaner and a good pinch roller cleaner like the Lasermedia CL-100 and RC-5 respectively. World
famous and used in studios around the world, the RB Annis Han D Mag leaves all the
in the dust because the strength of the magnetic field is far stronger and thorough
than any other hand held demag unit. It's nice to see USA made products with the very best components right down to the line cords and
internal parts you can't even see.
In true professional style, there is no off on switch to make sure you
don't energize or de-energize the unit up against the tape head. The
unit is powered as soon as you plug it in. Make sure your deck is OFF
and all tapes are at least 4 feet from the demagnetizer at all times,
the very heavy duty coil has a large magnetic field. Demagnetize your
heads and guides at least every 8 hours and always before using
tape! Clean your heads and guides before demagnetizing. Do NOT use if
you have a pacemaker or any other electronic implant.
Why do I need one of these?
We recently had a customer call complaining about the residual
noise (hiss) in the background of his new blank tapes. Even playing a
virgin tape, there was far too much noise. He blamed the tape. We
suggested he try the S115 head demag and see if there was any
difference. He called back after demagnetizing his tape path and the
hiss level went way down on his AMPEX deck. Down to the point it wasn't
even audible unless he "cranked" the level.

instructions and a little theory. The plastic coated probe on the standard length version is 2-1/4" long and handles most applications. Made in USA. 115 Volts.
