The Nagaoka Rolling 1000 Record Cleaner.
A record cleaner featuring a roller made of very soft silicone elastomer. One of the properties of this elastomer is that it is sticky. When rolling the cleaner over the record while applying a little pressure, the elastomer will deform and take the shape of the record groove. Any dust particles in the groove will stick to the rolling cleaner and be removed.
When the roller has become dusty, simply wash it under tap water using a little hand soap. The dust will easily be rinsed off. After drying the roller with lint free paper, it will become just as sticky as when it was new.
There is no danger that you will damage the label when rolling over the label.
This simple to use product will clean off all the loose dirt and dust particles, its an excellent way to keep your records clean and prevent the ‘clicks and pops’ you hear as your cartridge needle hits loose debris in the micro-grooves. It will not however ‘deep clean’ your records to remove the manufacturing mould release agents and ground in dirt – there’s only one way to do that – and it involves some form of wet process. We do sell wet process options as well.
