AudioQuest built a better record brush

AudioQuest leaves no stone unturned, even when it comes to upgrading the humble — but vital — record brush.

They've packed in more, thinner carbon fibers so the brush can sweep away ever-smaller particles. And you'll notice that this brush has exposed metal on the handle, which lets you serve as the "ground" to discharge static electricity while you're brushing. It's a simple, effective tool for any vinyl lover.

The original design is better.

Matt from Bend, OR on 4/24/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The original (previous) design is better. If you use this product correctly, you will hold both front and back rows level on the record surface. Allow the album to spin at least 5 times, and as much as 8 revolutions is all you need. Then keep both rows of bristles level as you move the brush to the center spindle. Once the leading edge of the brush is over the spindle, lift up in an arc motion to keep the trailing bristles on the surface so that the tail end of the brush bristles is still making contact as you lift off the center. This is the only way I have found the brush to work correctly. I bought this newer Audioquest brush, and the manufacturing was cheap. It has many more bristles as part of their selling point. However, the bristles on my brush were not cut straight, so the only way to have the full width of the bristles make contact with the surface resulted in a big no-no. The longer bristles were pushed out and not in the grooves. The other poor design on the new brush is that dust falls off the bristles. There has to be enough static to attract the surface contaminants off the record onto the brush. By their own admission, you will have to brush the surface multiple times to get all dust off. What?!! No, the original design is better. I returned the new "better" brush. Save yourself money and stick with this legacy design now sold by Pro-Ject and other companies that are simply rebranding the same product.

Pros: It looks nicer. Has softer bristles, and there are more of them.

Cons: Poor construction and new design is not as effective as the original design.

Great brush for cleaning your cherished vinyl collection. Well made, and a nice addition to keeping my collection clean, dust free, and around to enjoy for a long time.

Pros: Well made, bristles very soft will not damage LP's

Is this what is meant by "pounding sand"? Chasin dirt in a circle?

Greg from La Grange, MO on 2/20/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I can't tell if it cleans deeply or if it does anything about static. I do know that it does not pick up and/or remove any, or hardly any, dust. It piles the dust up in a nice windrow, just like the black fuzzy brush I've been using, but when usin the fuzzy brush, I can go around the record, pile up my dust, clean off the fuzzy one with the eyelash brush that came with the fuzzy brush for that purpose, then have at the dust pile another time or two, and it gets picked up. It seems that no matter how many times I go at the dust windrow with this AudioQuest thing, the dust just stays on the record, maybe relocating to another spot, and never gets picked up. It doesn't help to rotate the thing back into the handle like it says to do to clean the bristles. After fiddling with the AudioQuest for a while, I have to get out my old fuzzy brush, and use it to pick up the dust windrow created by AudioQuest. By then, hay, more dust has fallen out of the atmosphere onto my record, and I say screw it, and put on a CD, or go around another time or two with the old fuzzy brush if I really need to hear the record, and can remember why I needed to hear it so bad. It should have come with a box to keep it in. I use a cardboard box a toy airplane came in.

Pros: I'm still optimistic, and hope to discover a "pro" for this thing. Oh, it looks nice. Yeah. That's a "pro". It looks like it would work. Should work.

Cons: Umm, it don't work very good, it doesn't come with a storage box, it's dumb to have to rotate the brush around into the handle to clean off any dust that may have accumulated on the bristles. Fortunately, since it doesn't pick up any dust to speak of, that rotating isn't really something you really have to do.

It does a good job on older vinyl. If the album is too dirty snd still pops, you need more aggressive cleaning

First disc brush

Scott A. from Corona, CA on 10/7/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought this after using a cloth made for anti static for many years. The brush takes a little getting used to, but once you do, it seems to clean deeper. Just need to remember to use a lite touch, otherwise you may cause damage to your disk( the part that needs getting used to...)

Pros: Cleans deep and completely.

Cons: Need to learn to use a lite touch if you have never used one of these.

A Great Product For The Audiophile!!

DOUG from Delray Beach, FL on 12/31/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Let's be honest-this product is not a cure all!! If your records have been mishandled, dirty, or have oily finger prints on the surface this brush will have no effect. What it will do for the audiophile is remove light surface dust but more importantly discharge static electricity form your records. Many pops heard are from dust particles and static electricity discharges. This product did the trick for me!!

Pros: Gets ride of light dust and static electricity!!

Cons:

Features

How To Use:

  • Place record on platter and start turntable.
  • Holding the Anti-Static Record Brush's gold contacts, gently place the carbon fibers across the grooves. The fibers must touch the grooves, but should not bend; it is the ends of the fibers which do the cleaning.
  • Let the record turn a few times in order for the carbon fibers to gather both visible dust, and the micro-dust that is too small to see.
  • With the brush still on the record, rotate your wrist and the brush counterclockwise, lifting the fibers off the record. Try not to lose the dust as you lift the brush off the record.
  • Rotate the brush within the black handle to clean the dust off the fibers.
  • The brush is better at gathering dust than at holding dust; so repeat steps 3 and 4 a second or third time. For records that are cleaned every time they are played and not left out, a single pass with the Anti-Static Record Brush will keep them clean.
Note: Do not touch the carbon fibers as fingers' natural oil will compromise the cleaning process.
