Default dust brush, .00002 cents.

Tiny piece of female Velcro tape behind the needle some where up the angle of the cart at a place where it barely contacts the vinyl when needle is in play. Tested with tracking disc. Does *not* significanty alter track force until fully loaded . Loops do not damage records. Ideal

I feel this is important enough to get a pic on here somehiw, and will ASAP. For what it is worth, the geometry of this stupid little trick makes it work far better than a brush in front of the needle (regarding non interference with tracking force) This is one of those things you with you could patent, but doing so would make a decent person feel silly. I have found no, zero , zilch issues with this whereas the Shure V15 kind of brush is no more effective and has a variable mass. If you position this correctly and keep it clean it has a lot less effect on the needle due to the fact that it is located in behind the stylus. Not to get silly here but the obvious analogy is " where do I sit the fat kid in on the tweeter totter" If you sit him closer to the fulcrom,he can be fatter and not screw disrupt the CG. Stupid
