Brand New Vinyl Static and Pops

Nothing major, but annoying.

Could it be because I was spinning old dirty vinyl which made the platter dirty/dusty?

I'm about to buy the humminguru. Does anything go well with it?



Humidity is unchanged since I bought the Technics 1500C which was recent.

I don't think that is the issue.

And as I mentioned I played the new lps several times (maybe 3 times each) with no static or pops.

I have, but i'm using the brush that came with the cartridge.

Should I buy one with liquid?


I just opened a brand new virgin/unopened LP and there's no static/pops...

What do you think?

I never play NEW LPs w/o/cleaning them. I pull ultrasonic cleaned records & put them rite into a new MoFi sleave & when I pull them out to play, there’s dust from the air adheres rite to them. I just run the anti-static brush to them, before I drop the needle.
