Highly recommended as part of a larger cleaning regimen
My favorite brush so far. Though I also like the grounded static brush (www.turntableneedles.com/Grounded_Carbon_Fiber_LP_Brush) and the Milty Anti-Static Gun (www.turntableneedles.com/Zerostat-3-Anti-Static-Gun.html), and I do use all three with each record, as the last 3 steps in a 4-step system: 1) Wash the record when it first arrives in my home, and once in a blue moon after that. 2) Before each play, a) first use the Milty gun for neutralizing any positive or negative static on the vinyl surface, b) then use the grounded brush for gently removing any large stuff (big dust, hairs, etc.) and any remaining static, and c) finally, use this record cleaning brush (Dust Jockey, Groove Gator, etc.) to remove anything deep in the grooves. Even without washing, just with 2a-c, a LOT of pop and click has been removed from my records. REALLY NICE.
Also, if you are looking for a solution to use with this brush (though not necessary) I find it works well with a light schpritz with the SA-14 solution (www.turntableneedles.com/SA-14-Pfan-Stat-LP-Vinyl-Record-Cleaning-Fluid_p_2825.html).
The only thing I could see to improve this brush is if, like the grounded brush, it were ground-able. Hmm.. I wonder if I can solder a wire onto it..
P.S. - Also, a good stylus cleaning brush and solution is necessary, as well. I use this one. www.turntableneedles.com/Bliss-Stylus-Cleaning-Kit_p_1864.html With all the helpful cleaning and anti-static materials in place, you should be able to keep the sound really good on your records.
