Rushton's comment on the Zerostat is right on the money. The effect of removing any static charge from your lp's is noticable, especially if you have a rug in your music room and the air is dry and warm.
I'm attempting to finish up two projects I've been an for over a year, one a turntable and the other an RCM. I'm incorporating an anti static device on the RCM for sure, and maybe even the turntable if the results on the RCM are rewarding enough.
If you're interested in information regarding static and the problems they create regarding plastic products and surfaces, you can visit WWW.XAIR.com. They manufacture a wide range of devices to eliminate static charges.
In the fiberglass and cast polymer industry, static charges can present dust and dirt contamination problems as the molds are sprayed with polyester gel coats. I have seen dust and dirt literally fly off a fiberglass mold when exposed to an ionized air charge.
While the Zerostat has been around for many years, by no means is it the only product designed to reduce static problems. In the late 1950's I owned a cartridge made by a company called Audio Dynamics Corp. It was the ADC 1, sold for $50, and had a small square of radium affixed to the underside of the cartridge body. I had it mounted on a table with a second arm fitted with a Shure M3D. I never noticed a difference in performance, with regard to static, between the two cartridges. I also don't recall anyone else producing a cartridge with a radium dot, so who knows.
Shsohis, all this in respons to a simple question; maybe something can be said for offering more information than someone needs!!
