There used to be something similar to that years ago.  Basically a squiggly ball that the dirt sticks to.  Have you tested it?

Should get the stock today and will test tonight.   

Will also be interesting to see how it does at "cleaning the head".

I will also take one if it works.Although I have a RCM I am unable to use it at the moment.Purcase depends on  your feedback.

I'd like one, but as with placebo, it will depend upon your review....I also expect I'll drop it on a rug within a few days of purchase and that will be that as it tries to suck up any loose threads....

Decided the only sensible way to try this was with the USB microscope that was bought for setting stylus rake angle.   


First up a used record bought at a record market a few weeks ago.

Here is the same record after the usual few rotations with an anti static carbon fibre brush. 





As is easy to see it just the large fluffy bits that get picked up.

After the Vinyl Clean compound rolled around a bit. 

I think it's very positive.

Appears that it picks up more fluff than a carbon brush.For R189.00 definitely worth a try.

You don't.  Dispose when it gets tacky and call Croak for another.

For those of you who don't want to cough R800 odd for an Onzo.   Get some green goop.

What does a record look like under the USB after a RCM cleaning? Post a pic if possible sometime.
