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.
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.
Firstly, worth checking that the cleaning fluid container lid is tight before use as mine was loose. I first made a recording BEFORE cleaning of a track from a fifty year old LP and the result was what you would expect from a record that has gathered some dirt over the years, especially the first track with unwanted noise. Using the Big Fudge cleaning kit, plus an initial carbon fibre brushing, the result was virtually scratch free and worth saving to my Tascam mp3 in-line player/recorder. My opinion is, if you want analogue sound as an mp3, a record can produce a decent enough sound if unable to source from elsewhere, so definitely worth an £18 investment for cleaner records that are listenable to..
