I'm just starting my own vinyl collection and very soon discovered dust is a major issue, so I went ahead and started looking for a record cleaning brush. This is the one that had the highest rating out of all the places I looked in. Read the reviews and thought it could serve me well (I'm starting with brand new vinyls, so all I need is to brush them off a little in between plays; nothing major - yet) despite the negative comments.
When I got my hands on the brush, I popped-open a new album and proceeded to remove those tiny, little, annoying paper particles from the record's inner sleeve. The brush didn't scratch the record at all -as some others say it does- but it did start shedding fibers after the fourth swipe... is not that bad since you can still remove them using the brush itself (they don't stick to the record) but that's just something you don't expect with an item you're using for the first time.
Overall the brush works, but the build quality leaves quite some room for improvement. I won't go as far as not recommending the item, but maybe there are some higher quality brushes out there.
EDIT: Ok, I'm done with this brush... it DOES scratch the vinyl!! AND the fibers are getting stuck in the grooves... after brushing the A-side (disc 1) of the red vinyl edition of The Killer's Battle Born, I noticed some popping. Checked the needle and it had some bristles stuck in it.
Picked-up the record for better examination and noticed some fibers were in the grooves. Right then realized the inner portion of the disc (near the label) had some scratches...Read more ›
Most importantly, if your record is dirty, do not contaminate your brush with it. You will harm both.
This brush is for new and washed records between plays.
First, hold the brush nearly perpendicular to the record surface, with a slightest of bends with the turn. Wipe the tips the long way GENTLY across a cloth. Do this with the record turning on the turntable and do not press. Twice around does the job. This pass removes any relatively large particles and cat hair.
Then, point the tips of one row AGAINST the direction of turn at a someshat acute angle, as if you were shaving off a thin slice. This does the deep groove cleaning of dust that records attract. Clean the brush as before. Notice how much is left on the cloth.
If you have dirty records, get a liquid cleaner, or at the least, purified water. But every record player needs one of these brushes. Highly recommended!
I got a new pink marble-colored vinyl today and ran the brush on it before playing. I noticed there was an unusual amount of noise coming off during playback for being brand new and looked at the vinyl once I was done playing it. It was lightly covered in hairs. I assumed these were somehow my hairs and tried running the brush over to remove them. More hairs appeared. The Audioquest has been shedding as was also revealed by a dirtied cartridge and slight hair hanging off of my needle. It took 20 minutes of washing to remove the 30 or so hairs that situated themselves in said pink marble vinyl. Even after being cleaned, the record consistently hisses from the resultant scratches/damage. A big thanks to AudioQuest.
UPDATE: I've acquired a vintage discwasher on ebay. Now that thing does the job! Skip on this brush and pick up a discwasher. (Not the new ones as those don't really work.)
