Thanks for this. I have to say I am quite tempted . . Embarrassed

There are two much, much cheaper options that I've seen on Analogue Seduction's website.  I'll get one for The Girl sometime.

I sense that this thread has spread so my reply to the OP may be too late. I use a VP Dust Buster, less messy than the AT liquid and brush I used before.

+1 for the Onzow (goop).  Works great for me - but my stylus doesn't seem to collect gunk.  Bought it directly from Japan - saved 15% or so.

My newly bought records seem to have more static than my older ones, so probably will look into one of those zapper guns although they seem very expensive.

I have an old Audio Technica electro brush/pad thingy. 
Been using a drop of isopropyl alcohol on there. 
Seems to work great although I have been warned that the alcohol could dissolve the glue that binds the stylus to the cantalever 😱
Is the pursuit High Fidelity a sign of mental illness??
I think so....

And I also have one of those 'ultrasonic' cleaners from the 1980's which I use now and then.
