Do Tape Degaussing Tools Differ Much?

Like will using one create much difference than another.

I see them range from $6 to $6000.

It stirs the magnet polarity, am I missing anything?

Make sure the business end of the thing is plastic, (or has a gaffa tape covering!) if it drags itself towards the heads you don't want a metal on metal contact to scratch / damage the heads..

You can use a sock, too. Just make sure it's free of tinea.

Technique comes into play too. Make sure to keep the thing on as you back slowly away from the head.

The only one for proper tape machine care is the Han-d-Mag.
