The brush should be carbon fibre, otherwise its pointless.

Anti-static mats don't work well in my opinion, but then again
using a carbon fibre brush I don't have any static problems.

Mats can be used for tonal tuning, so which is best is hard
to say, but a solid fairly hard rubber mat gives the best results
on most turntables I'd say, deeply unfashionable though.

Note the rubber mat should be a solid section, not a triumph
of injection moulding mass removal where you can't see it.

Thanks. IŽll buy a carbon brush. I have a rubber mat, and I thought taht it was bad, but.....
I ever believed that these anti-static mats were NO-USEFUL.
Thanks for your fast reply.
