The typical LP carries grooves that are about half a mile long. Imagine the damage being done to your vinyl record and stylus needle, if small amounts of dirt gets dragged and scraped over half a mile of grooves. Vinyl records need to be cleaned carefully. Pristine records not only sound better, they also last longer and reduce stylus wear.
It goes without saying that pre-owned vinyls require thorough wet cleaning before being played. However, many people don’t realize that brand new records also need thorough wet cleaning before playing. This is because they come coated with release agents from the pressing process.
Wet cleaning gives 3 main benefits:
Specifically designed for wet scrubbing – An indispensable tool that bridges the gap between carbon fiber dry brushes and record cleaning machines (RCMs).
Cleans where it really matters – Ultra-fine (50 micron) bristles specifically designed to fit inside record grooves.
Stands up to repeated use – Chemically inert nylon bristles safe for use with all cleaning fluids.
Awesome cleaning power – High-density bristle clusters & high bristle count scrubs record grooves with authority and power.
Highly recommended with our TTVJ Vinyl Zyme and a record cleaning machine OR used with Stasis Ninja Clean Towels!
