Our friend Leeland at Music Hall audio stopped in and shared some of his turntable know-how with us. And just so the knowledge is out there I wanted to take a minute to tell you about the best way to clean your records.
Static keeps dust clinging to your albums, so using a dry brush won't get all of it off.
Liquid cleaners are actually bad for your records- they turn the dust into a muddy substance, and that gets pressed into the groove when you go over it with a brush, only to dry and cake up in the groove.
The best combination you can use is a Zerostat gun and a brush. What a Zerostat gun is is a special pistol that you aim at your record, held about a foot away. You squeeze the trigger slowly and it releases a 16" spread of charged ions, neutralizing the charge of the dust on your record. Then you easily brush off all the dust. There are no batteries, liquids to refill, etc.
Pretty sweet, and now we stock Zerostats! So if you're looking for the best way to clean your records, to keep them sounding their best for the long haul, pick one up!
