    Tascam Ms16 Demag

    Hi, I'm stuck in between the Han D Mag 112v or the Teac E-3. The Ms16 manual states that I should use the E-3 for demagnetizing. I can buy an E-3 on ebay for about 30 bucks, and the Han D Mag is around 70 dollars. I do want something that will get the job done, safely. Which one should I buy?

    I have used a TEAC E-3 (I actually own 2) for over 25 years on different reel to reels including: TEAC 3340S, Otari MX50550B and a Tascam MSR16S, It has worked fine on all of them. Make sure you follow the instructions for demagnetising exactly, i.e do not turn off demagnetiser until well away from the recorder, make sure the recorder is turned off, etc etc.

    Cheers

    Get a Han D Mag. Markertek has 'em for 49 bucks. No brainer!

    I have a han d mag and love it. I'm sure the Teac would work as well although the han d mag might be stronger.
