VS250 Hand-held VHS degausser

Used audio and video tapes can perform like new when you take a few seconds to completely erase previous recordings with this professional, powerful tape eraser.

The VS250 is a hand-held unit which erases audio and video tapes, including S-VHS. For computer use, it can be used for floppy disks, 3.5" disks and tapes up to 0.5" wide. The VS250 provides a dependable and transportable Audio/Video Tape Eraser at a price to meet the tightest of budget constraints. Altogether, the VS250 provides heavyweight performance at lightweight prices!


With the push button, power switch held on, move the unit to the tape. For audio cassettes, one swipe across the tape is sufficient to erase it completely. For VHS cassettes, rewind the tape and pass the unit in a circular movement over the tape. Turn the tape over and repeat. The unit will operate for approximately 2 minutes before cutting out for a cool down period of about 10 minutes.


The VS250x is only available in the Americas but offers a more powerful erasure. The VS250x is identical to the VS250 but also erases Super VHS, metal audio cassettes, 8mm (not Hi8) and DAT.
