Static problem on Lp's

How do any of you solve this problem? I have the AudioQuest brush but it actually makes the problem worse sometimes. I am sure that is does so because it isn't grounded. There are some solutions out there like anti static sleeves and anti static guns but I want to know what you guy's use and if you could post any links to products you have tried and find work really well. Also do any of you use this, http://www.sleevecityusa.com/GroOove...p/gem-lube.htm I read that it helps keep records from getting static in the first place but I dont know anyone that actually uses it. I am just getting back into vinyl and would rather buy products that are tested by people like you that I know here at HTS can be trusted. Any help or advice on the subject would be appreciated, Thanks, TC.

Re: Static problem on Lp's

Years ago I had 2 different zapper guns (one was a Zerostat as I recall) that I used on my records, and then would clean them on my Nitty Gritty record cleaning machine. After this I would put them in the Discwasher brand sleeves. When I pulled them out I would zap them, and clean them with a record cleaning brush once again. Not sure if I got the order correct as it has been 20 years, but it worked, and I had zero pops or noise playing my records. I hope this helps you.

I did see this one, http://www.google.com/aclk?sa=l&ai=C...sichallGZ3.htm but I thought it a bit pricey. If it really does the job then it may be worth the money. I also thought of trying to put a ground wire on the AQ brush I have and grounding it to the TT but if they sell one like that already, depending on the price, that could be an option. Thanks for the advice. Any more products people can recommend.

I couldn't find any user reviews on that product but I did find it on ebay for allot cheaper than what Amazon sells it for. I wonder why such a price difference??? http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINYL-RECORD...3D271622763973

Re: Static problem on Lp's

Yeah, I think I ordered it from eBay, or it was at least cheaper on Amazon when I did order it last. A bottle lasts a long time, about two quick sprays per side and wipe it down with a brush. Does some basic cleaning (good for light dust, nothing deep, though) but completely kills static pops. I've been using it for 4 or 5 years now.

Iif you look around you can find a used one or a B-Stock and save some money.

Re: Static problem on Lp's

I've got a Discwasher Anti-Stat Mat that I bought back in the early eighties that works like a champ to this day. No static at all (FM) on my records, but they haven't sold them for years. I guess if you sell a product that lasts forever it might not be a very good business model.

Panasonic TC-P55 VT60
Marantz AV-7005, UD-5007
Adcom GFA-5500, GFA-7000
Jolida JD-100A CDP, JD9A phono stage
VPI Scout with ATOC9 MKII LOMC
Matrix M-Stage, Little Dot MKII headphone amps
Klipsch KLF-20s modded with Crites titanium diaphragms & crossovers
Klipsch KV-4 center, KSF-S5 & SS-1 surrounds
Hsu VTF-3 MK4 sub
Dynaco ST-70 clone tube amp

Re: Static problem on Lp's

I guess I should add that I'm using a suede mat under my records in addition to the pfan-stat.
