WJAAS - A classy way to clean/undust vinyl records

... much better and no-global than the usual, expensive "audiophile" stuff - i.e. carbon-fiber brush, I recently found a classy super smooth, and most of all, super dust capturing item;-):

It's a 10 cm (right the size of a record side...) "Vajo/Kozan squirrell", extra-thin hairs coming from this exotic squirrell tail from Siberia (sounds snobbish and unheard enough, pals?;-))); such a classy item is used in restoring ancient painting-frames with golden leaves and the like.

It's a brush absolutely nicely and flawlessly performing, leaving record surface without static for, at least, the whole listening record-side... I've been impressed by the anti-tics/tocs which this humble brush performed, without any bristle left on record surface.

A cheap purchase, at about EUR 10 per brush, maybe worth someone attention.

Here is a useful link and instructions:

Kazan Vajo brushes - will be enough to touch some wool felt to electrify the brush, which will capture dust on record surface.

Here is one of the several links where to find this items:
