Why You Must Look After Your Vinyl

 

 

Whilst vinyl is relatively robust,it has several issues that need to be addressed in order to maintain it's amazing ability to reproduce music in an atmospheric way.Many don't realise that the dust particles are attracted to the vinyl.Static electricity plays a big part in vinyl attracting unwanted elements that not only descend on your precious vinyl but sit in the grooves waiting for a diamond stylus to track over them and embed them into the vinyl and create those clicks and pops that detract from the wonderful playing experience that we all enjoy.

At Vinyl Revival we have trams that pass by outside and they, in using their brakes,create sand dust that finds it's way into the shop.Very hard grit is an enemy of vinyl as a diamond stylus,sand grit and vinyl are not good company.the vinyl will lose every time.

That's why we recommend and sell an enormous amount of record cleaning equipment.the absolute minimum in playing records is to have a quality record brush and a stylus cleaner.Products such as the Pro-Ject Brush-It or the AM Velvet Brush and the Pro-Ject Clean-It stylus cleaner are mandatory to maintain vinyl quality.These will quintessentially help you protect your precious vinyl.If your vinyl is dirty or secondhand a liquid cleaner such as the AM Record Cleaner or the Spin Clean system will help get those nasties out of the grooves.Vinyl is a special listening place that if it is looked after will reward in spades.

For the last couple of years Melbourne’s Two People, Phoebe Cockburn and Joey Clough, formerly of Snakadaktal, have been teasing us with brooding electronic-pop. The artwork for the last two releases – ‘Something To Talk About’ and ‘I’m Tied, To You’ – suggest a “proper” project is coming, and if their latest release is anything to go by it’ll be something serious.
