They use a screw down clamp system.

Mission Impossible. But screw down clamp system is one of the best ever made.

Static Draining Record Brush

 

So how do you like the brush - does it work well in your opinion?

 

I'm almost positive I have a static problem with my vinyl.

Totally possible as I used to do it on my old VPI HW 19 with a screw down clamp and do it now with my 16.5 cleaner.  You just hold the screw down bit as the record spins and it comes loose.  Flip.  Spin faster to tighten.  Brush clean.

 

My new VPI table has a rubbery mat so I stop it to flip.

Humidifier, new mat, that brush. KILL IT DEAD. It's an awful problem.

 

Also, it works pretty well. I have one as well. Doesn't eliminate the problem, but makes a noticeable difference.

I'm looking at small humidifiers for the TT area. I use the acrylic platter without a mat. And I'm really considering the MapleShade brush.

 

My records are clean, I use the AudioQuest brush before playing each side (I don't think its working well) and then I play...

 

...I can literally see dust fly over and stick to the record. I'm almost positive that it is the static and resulting dust sticking on during play that's causing the pops. I don't want super-sterile cd sound, but I would prefer to keep the pops to a minimum.

Well, at least you all have a turntable to have static on. Some day I will be able to have these problems....hopefully.

I use the Mapleshade brush on side 2, put it on the mat and then use it on side 1 as well. Seems to work pretty well. Also, remember to keep the humidifier far enough away to not be TOO WET.

I boil water in my apartment. 

 

I also forget that I'm boiling water and mess up pots.

If, I may ask, where are you at with your audio goals? Are you close your TT goal?

I like it...works well for me! The listening room is carpeted, but I also live in Cali. Got static, but not like other states I lived in or visited. The vintage 1977 Sony PS-X5 TT needs more attention with static than the Music Hall. 

 

I make sure to brush the acrylic platter, tone arm, head-shell, bottom side of record, then top side of record. And because of its width, it's great at sweeping the record as it turns.

MT, I have a small humidifier in the bedroom. If I bring it out in advance to the listening room, do you think a couple of hours would work? I'd rather not have it on once I'm in-session.
