Audioquest Anti-Static Record Brush Cleaning/Care

Audioquest Anti-Static Record Brush

  • Product Code: Record Brush
  • £16.95

Back in 1973, I became a dedicated user of the Decca Carbon Fibre Record Brush. The British Decca Brush was so wonderfully more effective than any of the wet-cloth-pad cleaners that smeared dirt around on one’s records.

As often happens to truly superior products, the Decca Brush was mostly ignored — the overall record-cleaning market was dominated by cleaning pads attached to wood handles — not because they worked well, but because many hi-fi stores preferred to sell a cleaner that forced customers to come back to buy “special” fluid, again and again.

After creating AudioQuest in 1980, and with the wild success of the AQ 404 phono cartridge in 1982, and because i personally used a Carbon Fibre record brush every single day — AudioQuest began making the AQ Carbon Fibre Record Brush — now a 35-year old success story, and maybe the world’s favorite way to respect and care for LPs.

Except — Audioquest eventually learned that the AQ Record Brush (and every other brand of carbon Fibre brush), doesn’t have a good electrical path between the fibres and the handle, and that the print-protecting coating on the metal handle prevents a proper electrical connection to the user’s hand. The user is the “ground” for static electricity, so having a good electrical contact from fibres-to-hand is a big deal!

In creating Audioquest's new Conductive Carbon Fibre Brush, AudioQuest created new tooling for every part of our new design. Audioquest’s reborn Brush has ideal conductivity from the Carbon Fibres, through the internal parts of the brush, to the conductive Gold Contacts placed right where your fingers need them.

Audioquest also reinvestigated what is possible with Carbon Fibres, finally choosing for their new Brush a far greater quantity of new smaller fibres in order to more effectively sweep away micro-dirt, not just the less relevant visible dust.

To everyone who has an Audioquest Record Brush (thank you), or any brand of Carbon Fibre brush, and to everyone who hasn’t yet discovered how simple it is to keep records clean:

Audioquest invite you to experience the reborn AudioQuest Conductive Record Brush.

Your records will thank you!
