Record Cleaning

Having bought a vinyl cleaning kit for under £10 I thought I’d give it a go on the Future Sound Of London 12″ that I bought at last weeks Record Fair. Here is the kit, which, for the price, is pretty good. The instructions aren’t though so I tried to figure it out myself.

Below is a video where you can hear the difference before and after cleaning. It isn’t a good video as I made it without the benefit of a soundcard and having spent 2 hours figuring out how to get the video from my iphone to my PC, I was rather frustrated by then. It does, I think, show quite well the benefits of giving what was a pretty poor sounding vinyl a good clean.
