11-08-07: Tobias I use this great big soft fluffy thing on a stick. It could be the tail of a very large Persian cat. Itís made of synthetic fibres that are supposed to be very good at picking up dust. I donít know about that but it works great and it doesnít scratch or bump the gear.
IĎve used it on the plinth and platter of my turntable, but very slowly and carefully. Iíve used on the top side of the tonearm wand, again very slowly and carefully. Iíve used it on the counterweight very very very slowly and very very very carefully. Iíve never used it anywhere in the vicinity of the cartridge.
