Record Rescue has saved my stylus
I live in a 115 yo house and it is very dusty. This has wreaked havoc on my vinyl listening experience. I had issues with dust buildup on the stylus that was very difficult to remove via a brush or my onzow zerodust. I have a Rega and was using the original felt mat. I went to a cork/rubber mat and this helped reduce static on the platter. I got one of the Milty 3 zerostat, but that thing is so frustrating I tucked it away. The trigger is so inconsistent in how it reacts and clicks or not. I also picked up a record rescue on Amazon. It is a mini version of those old lint rollers that are reusable. Now I roll that across every record before I place it on the platter. On a long day of listening I rinse it off a few times. It does a fantastic job of removing debris from the record. I have not noticed any issue of it leaving a residue behind. It will make streak marks if you apply much pressure. If it is clean you really only let it rest and roll it across. I was curious how this was working for others.
