Record Cleaner Brush

Postby VideoGameCritic » July 18th, 2020, 2:04 pm

So now that I'm starting to learn around records, I'm learning they require more care than other mediums.

I have cats, and I was pretty alarmed to see cat hair sticking to my Miles Davis record! That could not be a good thing. Tried removing them with a rag, but that doesn't work well due to static electricity. Science strikes again!

Fortunately I found this handy item on Amazon

I have to say, it works like a charm! Just let you record rotate a few times, holding the brush near the middle, and gradually working towards the edge. After a few revolutions your record is perfectly clean. I was surprised how much dust it took off.

If you're getting into records, this is a good investment.

Lol. About twice a year I get tempted to get into vinyl, but between the inconvenience and expense, always shy away. Once again, found myself tempted—but between two sheddy dogs, no doubt I’d be brushing too.

Definitely a must have. I use my brush any time I buy a record -- used ones usually need a cleaning, and new ones need the static removed. Mine is a different style, I have this velvet brush here:
