    Is there a safe way to quickly erase some cassettes? Not not with the magnet, I consider that not safe.

    Like any professional kit I wouldn't expect one to be cheap though.

    You might find one on Ebay. They were popular when computers were using tapes or floppy disks

    For info if you put a hard disk in one it would erase all the sector information and never work again.

    I use bulk eraser, but the sound cassette makes while being "erased" is excruciating!!! Thats the only reason I prefer recording "over" and at the end just drop in something as a filler.

    This is what I use, bought for a few bucks off eBay. Put the latest issue of Stereophile on top of cassette, then "iron" it with it. Flip cassette, "iron" again, Done! The pain, sorry, noise!, of music being erased is unforgettable!!!

    It is the same thing, go for whichever is cheaper!
