Thanks for the tip on the Hudson. I’ll verify the carbon fiber is touching. It does a good job of picking up any dust that may have lighted since I put the record down. I think the Hudson is de-staticing the surface. My problem, like you, is the underside. My turntable has a Linn mat, is wool?… well, highly static inducing, whatever it is made of. It will stick to the album sometimes. I have researched other mats and decided to stay with the Linn mat anyway.
OK, in comparison to you, I have no static problem. Wow, that is a lot of static! You are definitely the expert.
