AcousTech Big Brush w/ Ground Strap
Dissipate static and wipe away harmful dust, lint and dirt with one simple stroke of this handle-held large brush. Unlike some record brushes, this model fits across the entire radius of a 12-inch LP. Its bristles are made of a unique blend of soft natural hairs and conductive synthetic fibers that result in effective static dissipation. Packaged in a re-sealable pouch. For use on LPs, film, glass, plastics and negatives.
Stereophile Analog Corner By Michael Fremer, September 2008"Ever have one of those little carbon-fiber record-cleaning brushes slip out of your hand while you're dusting off an LP, and end up with one that's dust-free but now screatched? Acoustic Sounds figures you have, and recently began marketing AcousTech's The Big Record Brush, a large-handled brush of soft bristles, both natural hairs and conductive synthetic fibers. The 5.5"-wide bristle area easily spans the width of an LP's grooved area..."

These reviews are all well deserved. This brush essentially solved the problems I was having with dust on my records. Noticeably reduced static and interruptions from the record. I would suggest getting the cheaper version without the ground strap though, it's essentially the same brush.

This is a brilliant brush. Tried a lot of cleaners earlier and was disappointed but this does the job really well
Brush works as claimed and does great job of dissipating static. Can be washed when it gets dirty & trimmed if you prefer stiffer bristles. Expensive, but worth it.
I've bought three dry cleaning brushes so far, and this one has done the best job. The other two were Roksan ( left about half of the dust on the record) and Audioquest (left small scratches on the record) can't hear them But!
Bought one of these this year (2010) not knowing what to expect, well it works wonders . . . . I find that this brush (grounded) picks up significantly more dust and DIRT than any other brush I have ever owned. . . .For me it is a winner . . . .
