Staticky records
« on: August 03, 2018, 03:53:54 pm »
Hello,

I recently bought a few records that are very staticky and a anti-static brush doesn't seem to help.  What is a good way to get rid of the pops and crackles without breaking the bank or ruining the record?

Zerostat is the only way I've found. But you'll need to pay $80-100.

I've heard of that.  Does it work really well?  I figured going into the record hobby would be expensive, sounds like I'll have to get one of those.  Saw one at Amazon for $72.  Do I need the anti-static sleeves too?

Yes, it works perfectly. Well worth it. I have tried other things and this is the best.

Anti-static sleeves don't work. I get non-paper sleeves to avoid damage to the LP, but otherwise just make sure the record isn't charged with static when you store it away.
