Hello everyone.
Is the Panasonic VXP1561 head drum interchangeable with the Panasonic VEH0651 head drum?
Thank you all.

It depends on whether you're talking about the whole drum assembly, or just the upper drum (spinning part). This older forum post would suggest the drum with assembly fits in the NV-HS1000, of which the older revisions have the VEH0651 drum assembly. The VXP1561 seems to be the assembly used in the newer revision of the NV-HS1000 and the NV-HS900 which is a little newer. The full assemblies are likely interchangeable as long as they fit physically. I've successfully used the drum assembly from a AG5700 (same drum assy as NV-FS200/FS88) in a NV-HS1000, so I know there is some cross-compatability.

I don't think upper drums on their own are interchangeable though, I know someone who checked the compatability between the VEH0651 and one from the newer revision which presumably is the VXP1561 and they won't fit each others lower drum assemblies.

Picture of disassembled head drums from the person mentioned, From the left, head from NV-HS1000 (VXP1561 I think), NV-HS800 (VEH0651), and NV-F55 (Normal VHS with 4+2 hifi)

Thanks for your kind replies. My intention would be to recover a Panasonic NV HS800 (which mounts VEH0651) with a complete drum (upper + down drum) extracted from an NV HS900 (which mounts VXP1561): both groups have the same 5-pin connector on the base of the RF amplifier.

According to what you say it should be possible ... I hope
