The genuine Audio Technica AT6012 was on a long backorder once, (now obsolete) so we put together this substitute kit. The Tonar Classic
and a bottle of D4+ cleaner
was so popular during this backorder we have made this a full time product. If you looked closely at the manufacturing quality and materials of the Tonar Classic brush and smelled the D4+ cleaner, as we have, we are very confident you would come to the same conclusion as us, which is that they are very very likely exactly the same product! Our test record was just as clean with this 'custom' kit, so save a couple dollars and get the best cleaning kit value around today.
NOTE: the D4+ cleaner bottle is 1.25oz, the AT6012 bottle is 2oz.
