Steris Corporation has introduced a new brush for cleaning the needle of the Stylus Super Clean Brush pickup head. Over time, the wear of the needle is inevitable. Dirt accumulating on the tip of the needle acts as an abrasive, accelerating the process of needle wear and damaging the grooves of the plate. But there are several ways to extend the life of your stylus, protect your recordings, and keep your stereo system’s sound quality high. And one of the most effective will be regular cleaning of the needle with the Stylus Super Clean Brush.
It is better to clean the stylus before each listening session. On average, the length of the grooves of the two sides of the plate is from 700 meters to a kilometer, and the needle, passing this distance, collects dust and microparticles. Regular cleaning is essential to ensure the durability of the needle.
The Stylus Super Clean Brush is made of thick nylon bristles. For cleaning, it is recommended to wet the brush with a special Tiptronic liquid. In the UK, the Stylus Super Clean Brush can be ordered for £19.99, and a set with a 15ml tiptonic liquid bottle will cost £29.
