The original AQ Record Brush, as good as it was (and every other brand of carbon Fiber brush), doesn’t have a good electrical path between the fibers and the handle, and that the print-protecting coating on the metal handle prevents a proper electrical connection to the user’s hand. The user is the “ground” for static electricity, so having a good electrical contact from fibers-to-hand is a big deal! The new AQ record brush, when used properly, offers demonstrably improved record playback over the original brush.
In creating AQ’s new Conductive Carbon Fiber Brush, AudioQuest created new tooling for every part of the new design. AQ’s reborn Brush has ideal conductivity from the Carbon Fibers, through the internal parts of the brush, to the conductive Gold Contacts placed right where your fingers need them.
Audioquest also reinvestigated what is possible with Carbon Fibers, finally choosing for the new Brush a far greater quantity of new smaller fibers in order to more effectively sweep away micro-dirt, not just the less relevant visible dust.
For a vinyl lover, this is the cheapest “upgrade” you can make.
