The brush! From Stanton literature:
"[the longhair brush] is independently hinged so it will not interfere with the tracking force of the stylus while its tapered nylon bristles clean the grooves....damps tonearm resonance..improves low frequency tracking...dynamically stabilizes the tone-arm system..aids in the playback of warped records."
NOTE: Because this needle is designed for use specifically with STANTON cartridges, it can be found in numerous brands of turntables. In some cases the cartridges for this needle may be original equipment supplied with a new turntable, but was also likely to have been selected at time of sale to complete a turntable sold without a cartridge or later as an upgrade to the original cartridge supplied by the turntable manufacturer. This needle should be matched primarily to the STANTON cartridge type not necessarily the turntable.
