Naked Classic Platter

By a show of hands, is there anyone who doesn't use the turntable mat on their VPI Classic platter?
Nope. I use a Herbie's Audio grungebuster mat.
I don't use a mat. Mine is naked.
Prior to this past winter I did not use a mat, but found the amount of static electricity generated this winter to be more than I cared to deal with. I bought a Music Hall cork mat and immediately experienced a world of difference. While not completely eliminated, the amount of static was greatly reduced. And, because LPs seem to lie very nicely onto the MH, I find that I do not need to use my record clamp much at all anymore.
Nope, but then again my table is only using the motor, platter, and plinth.
