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.
An anti-static gun is almost a must-have for LP owners. Just dusting the LP with a brush can create a static charge. The Milty Zerostat is acceptable, but the Furutech DeStat III is imo better. Not cheap, however.
