very apparent difference!

This brush does what it's supposed to do and it does it very well!! All visible and audible material is sweeped of the (pre-wet cleaned) record and there is MUCH less static. Awesome product!
-Removes majority of static -When used correctly it removes all the debris on the record
- The technique is a little hard to perfect especially if you don't have the steadiest hands.

Record Cleaner

Wanted similar to the old Discwasher made in the 1970's. This comes close, but not as good.

Audioquest record brush

Written By Darksolstice, Murfreesboro, Tn on Monday, October 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I have used the old Discwaher for years, was ending up with lots of static, new it was time for a change, this is a wonderful product, it cleans fine dust, cat hair.etc and also takes care of my static problem, some people talk about the brush shedding or damaging records, if used properly you will not have that problem, just look on youtube there are several videos that will show you the proper way to use it, I can't believe i waited so long before buying this wonderful record brush, I highly recommend it for a quick cleaning before playing.
quick, cleans dust efficiently and removes static as advertised
no cons

1 question already asked

do you need to add any fluid to this? [ Ron  Jan 08, 2014 ]
5 answers
  • As this need to be done on your turntable with the power turned on, it has to be done dry with out any cleaning fluid. If you wish to use a cleaning fluid, then you to use a system like the SPIN-CLEAN RECORD WASHER SYSTEM MKII. Which is a stand alone system. [ Joseph   Jan 09, 2014 ]
  • No fluid is specified in the instructions. It is a dust brush, so it will take off dust, but not accumulated dirt. Dirty records would require a cleaning product with fluid. [ JOHN JR   Jan 09, 2014 ]
  • Have never needed to add any fluid. Works great. [ Rudy_1910   Jan 09, 2014 ]
  • No, you do not....but I had to go to Youtube and watch a video on the proper way of using it. It works amazingly though!! [ WILLIAM   Jan 08, 2014 ]
  • No fluid needed. It's designed to be used as a dry brush and uses the conductive carbon fibers to eliminate static electricity while removing dust and fine particles. Fluid may impair this function. [ RAQUEL   Jan 08, 2014 ]
