Does what it says on the tin. It won't repair scratches but it gets rid of most of the dust and rubbish and improves the sound, getting rid of a lot of the pops and background hiss. One criticism is the bottle of cleaner it comes with, it's supposed to fire a fine mist, mine is a bit more orgasmic.
Fantastic cleaning product. It is not going to recover a record that is full of nicotine or real filth, but compared to carbon fibre brushes I was amazed at how much dust and dirt came up on the pad. Also because the pad is curved, it means that the velvet gathers the dirt instead of it just being pushed along the record surface. Inclusion of cleaning fluid helps with a deeper clean, and their is even a nice drawstring bag to keep it all in. Great all round.
Having used carbon fibre brushes for many years I thought I’d try a different product as I was having some problems with crackling on records. This product is so much better than any of my carbon fibre cleaners. It removes dirt and dust that carbon fibre brushes don’t seem to deal with - perhaps it is because their bristles are too soft and flimsy. This velvet brush has a chunky handle so is easy to hold and it feels like it is really getting into the groves. The pad isn’t flat and this seems to help with dust removal - you need to rock it back and forth gently and in doing so it just seems the lift the dust. The spray is useful for more stubborn dirt. I also haven’t noticed any increase in static in using this brush. Altogether a top product!
I've been properly collecting vinyl records since 2019 and I was only made aware recently that they should be cleaned! After doing some research I decided to purchase this product and see if it lived up to it's reputation. I would highly recommend buying this product if it's your first time cleaning your records.
It comes with a soft velvet record brush which I felt more comfortable using than a roller. It picks up majority of the dirt and dust on your records. It also comes with bristle and stylus brushes to clean your velvet brush with. The record cleaner doesn't leave smudges and doesn't cause any damage to your records.
I bought this as I was cleaning my vinyl with just microfibre cloth and some cleaning fluid, which was fine, but rarely do they need such a deep clean. This sit's right next to my record deck and takes about 10 seconds to whizz across the record before each play. It leaves the record spotless, just remember to follow the instructions.
The quality of the materials is great, it feels like it will last a good long time. I was worried that the fluid would be gone quickly but with just a couple of squirts needed it's lasting for ages. I like the stylus dust tool too that works very well.
I would say I will not hesitate to buy this again, but I don't think it will be necessary as it's going to last years! Great product, and great value for money.
