Audiotechnica Record Cleaner, Thoughts?

Post by Mrs Ritchie Valens » 10 Aug 2019 15:42

This was a birthday gift from my dad, and it's also the very first record cleaner I have ever gotten, so does anyone have thoughts on how good this stuff is?

I’ve been using an AT6012 record brush dry for a few weeks and I think it’s pretty good. I’m a fan of the old Discwasher brush and the Audio Technica seems very similar. I use an ultrasonic cleaner on dirty records, and use the brush to remove dust before playing.

This stuff my dad got me is very simple. It just comes with this felt sort of thing, and the cleaner.

If it says “SONIC BROOM” on one end and “AT6012” in the middle, it’s probably the same thing I have. Mine is great at removing dust before playing clean records, but I haven’t tried it with the fluid on really dirty records.

If it's an AT6012, it's my favorite record cleaning brush.

I checked, it's the same thing you have. How do I use it/ with, or without the cleaner on the records?
