Record care and maintenance

To ensure the best sound and the least amount of wear on your records, it’s essential that they are kept clean. Make sure your records, especially older ones are sufficiently cleaned prior to playing them thoroughly clean dust off the stylus, and record regularly. Use a soft brush to clean the stylus. Brush from the base to the tip as shown below.

Elements Global VENICE 3 Speed Turntable - Record care and maintenance

For records with only light amounts of dust, we recommend brushing them off with a carbon fibre brush or velvet pad before playing them. Use a good quality record cleaner and brush set to keep your records clean. Carbon fibre brushes, velvet pads, and record cleaning kits are available online or in local record stores.
