    Well, the sales pitch sure is long enough - I'm sold!

    you silly boys, ok as far as a brush it looks quite familiar.

    but I can say that I have insider knowledge that no balloon can be rubbed on F1's head without instantly breaking, so since no static can cling, F1's head hair might be the bling, to make your records sing.

    I'll be following F1 with a lint roller everywhere he goes at Polkfest so I can collect enough hair to make my own DIY record brush.

    The amazing thing is that they plan to sell enough of those to pay for the ad development and the SEM optimization and placement strategy. Maybe it's time for me to sponsor the RT1 infomercial selling audio gear and accessories. We could call it "All Tubes Glow Brighter with Ted" :D

    Wow! That is one long ad for a $20.00 miracle brush!! And to think I've been using the EX-static version of this exact brush for over two years now. Does this mean I should throw out my Record Cleaning Machine now? Does anyone remember Muntz electronics? They were around in the mid 70's to mid 80's. Anyway, I saved a carbon fiber record cleaning brush with their logo on it all these years and when I got back into vinyl I dug it out. Works great. Point is all that anyone who's vinyl hardcore has known about carbon fiber for years. No record in my house gets played without a spin on the RCM and then a brush with one of the brushes and on really dry days a de-zapping with the Milty Zerostat.

    I had one like this but w/o name brand of DAK, and I didn't like how the "velvet pad" felt quite hard with almost dangerous edges. I just prefer a normal carbon fiber brush.

    On a really dirty cruddy used LP a 3M Lint Roller is not a bad option as a first pass in the cleaning strategy. I've used that several times.

    I think I still have a dak in my collection. From what I remember it worked quite well.
