    Default Tonar Woodgoat Cleaning Brush

    I've wet cleaned less than 30 LP's since buying this at the end of June this year - its the dual row wooden brush.

    Seems to do a good job but, after rinsing it yesterday one clump of bristles fell out. I left it to dry and another 2 have were ready to drop out. Not good for 20 worth of brush.

    I've asked the retailer whether it has a guarantee and they are looking into it.

    Have look at the pictures and you can see the bristles are secured by steel wire that has rusted - not great for a wet cleaning brush.

    The only reason for posting this is that many of you use one - so my advice is to check yours but gently tugging on each clump to make sure they are well anchored. Rusted steel wire on a soft vinyl LP is going to do some damage. Luckily for me I did not damage a LP.

    I use a Decca carbon fibre bush. Had it for twelve years or more, and it has not shed a single fibre in use.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    When I got my Project VCS it came with its own brush. Single row set in a plastic handle. That shed hundreds of bristles and was unusable but Juno Records replaced immediately. The new one is good but i use that for rinsing only (OCD rules...).

    The retailer may yet replace my broken Tonar brush but if they don't I might try this one which claims to be designed for wet cleaning >

    Or this type >
