A clean stylus is a happy stylus
"...The SC1 stylus brush and cleaner was exactly what I needed. The brush is super gentle and the solution helps to pull everything away from the stylus. For me - the SC1 is essential. Get the SC1. It's gentle yet effective. DO IT!" Ralf W.
SC1 Stylus Cleaning Kit
Even if you use your GrooveWasher to clean your records, room dust, lint and cat hair can accumulate on your stylus. Your stylus will "plough" out any debris that isn't removed from a record cleaning.
We sourced and tested dozens of brush styles, handle types and bristles. Straight "pencil" brushes. Artist camel hair brushes. Toothbrush styles. Mascara brushes.
We preferred a 90-degree angle. Long bristles so the brush can clean the underside of the cartridge as well as the stylus. Dense bristles to pull off gunky coatings but soft to avoid damage to the stylus or cantilever. Those are the effective cleaning features of our new stylus brush. This brush can be used dry or with a couple of drops of SC1 Fluid.
This kit includes our SC1 Stylus Fluid. It's a cousin of our G2 Fluid with a bit more organic alcohol. The stylus can become clogged with oily pressing release compound from new records and residue from other record cleaning and preservative fluids. SC1 Stylus Fluid dissolves these contaminants and the SC1 Brush removes them.
The GrooveWasher SC1 Stylus Cleaning Kit includes:
SC1 Stylus Brush. 4.6" handle curved to fit your hand. Soft, dense fine nylon bristles with a dome cut top.
SC1 Stylus Fluid in a 15 ml dropper bottle with childproof cap.
Stylus cleaning instructions.
Note: Hard-surface cleaning fluids like G2 and SC1 can be irritating to skin and eyes. Avoid contact with your eyes. Flush with clean water. Keep all cleaning products out of the reach of children.
This is the best stylus cleaning kit I have ever encountered — great for removing the usual irritants like dust and lint and pet hair, but also for cleaning your valuable stylus free of the manufacturing schmutz that comes in the grooves of many new records these days. The brush is genius — it has a nice long, curved handle that is ergonomic for getting gently at the stylus and underside of the cartridge without some of the hand/tonearm contortions required to get at the same area with the dinky brush in most kits. The fibres are soft but dense, a combination that is able to clean very effectively with one gentle swipe. And the cleaning solution is also great, hasn’t failed me yet. Having tried several kits, I can say without hesitation that this is my favourite to date.
GrooveWasher SC1 Stylus Cleaning Kit
Easily and safely cleans the stylus. I haven't used it much in the short time since I received it, but I'm happy with the product.
Nice brush! Softer than others I have used. Good value.
I use the groovewasher stylus cleaning kit every side of my records I don’t use the fluid I just use the brush. I don’t like to put fluid on my stylus I find the brush works just as well as the groovewasher record brush.
