Indeed.  I have noticed that when I lift a record off the platter I get a few cracks.  I was just about to post about it.  Co Inky Dink.

I use a carbon fibre brush before every play, is there anything else I could do.  I have noticed a few anti static products around.

Never had this problem in humid, sub tropical Qld.

For summer I use my regular record cleaning solution then follow up with the anti static gun

Evening all..  I must be careful not to address the fellas only, with the welcome addition of @April Snow to the forum.

 

Santa dropped in early today...

695823783_BlackSabbathParanoid1971-2006Rhinoreissue.WarnerBros.PressedbyRainboRecordsUSA.180gm.Masteredfromoriginalanaloguetapes..JPG.1afdcbcd1b9780d9bae5c29bafef27e1.JPG

 

Currently spinning...

Black Sabbath  'Paranoid'  1971 - 2006 Rhino reissue.  Warner Bros.  Pressed by Rainbo Records, USA.  180gm.  Mastered from original analogue tapes.

 

I've never had this one on vinyl before.  I must say I'm very impressed with this record, all nice covers and great sound.  But hearing this on vinyl for the first time is blowing me away.  War Pigs and Iron Man with considerable volume.

 

Ohhhhhh how exciting - nice that Santa is Black Sabbath fan - who would have guessed it? Move over Rudolph, Santa might replace you with a reindeer named Ozzie !!

 

I had a good "Santa Day" too - 

poor postman must be hating me lately.

 

Thank for you remembering me too 🤗

 

Enjoy 🙂

I am struggling too, I am on the Gold Coast and it is hot but we are in a drought and no decent rain - and lots of smoke around too, and static is driving me crazy. I thought I was doing something wrong? I even have the Zero Stat Gun and I use the carbon brush too - and then "Milty" again - it is driving me crazy.

 

Oh but got to tell you this what I found out less than an hour ago - DO NOT hold the Carbon Brush and think you can hit it with the Milty Zero Stat - I did that - and I will NOT do it again - was not expecting to feel pain in my hand - I don't know the records survive it.  There is no way I would ever put it near the actual turntable.

 

LOL 🤪

Yes they are expensive, but they do work - just don't mess around and shoot it at anyone as fun, it will give you a sting a bit stronger than flicked rubber band - I accidentally shot myself if the thumb tonight holding my carbon brush thinking it was a good idea and might remove static from the brush prior use (oops) - all it has done is killed my thumb for a while (haha).

 

I got my gun from Audio Trends in Oz, I found it cheaper and they were willing to price match to $130 with free shipping if that helps.

New arrival -

Etta James - The Very Best Of

 

I was sceptical what this might be like (ebay purchase from UK) but WOW what a copy !!!!!

Plays so beautiful and rich and no clicks or pops (only minimal static from the weather as it is so dry here at the moment)

 

I have several of her CDs and all of them have some tape hiss at some point but this has no hiss and her voice is deep and full  with lots of bass and just was the perfect selection of songs from start to finish. 

 

I love Etta - she had me waltzing in my living room in my Pajamas  (as she often does).

This LP beats all CDs I own hands down and my only fear is I will wear it out !!!

 

Earlier in the week I was feeling low and regretting my decision to dabble in Vinyl and got depressed wanting to give up, but playing this tonight reminded me just how good something can sound and be enjoyed (even on my basic turntable), it truly made my day.

What is the track listing?

It doesn’t have the track list on it but the list below sounds right. I’ll confirm next time I give it a spin and let you know if it differs.

At the risk of sparking up the Aldi/Reject Shop debate, I picked this up a couple of days ago at The Reject Shop for $20...

 

Ramin Djawadi - L'Orchestra Cinematique  'Game of Thrones'  2019 Khemko, UK. MusicBank.

803148025_RaminDjawadi-LOrchestraCinematiqueGameofThrones2019KhemkoUK.MusicBank_800.jpg.72ae9b62534721fd3715f6b0ec2cc12e.jpg

1 x black and 1 x picture disc.  Compositions by Ramin Djawadi, Chelsea Joy Wolfe and George RR Martin.

The second, black vinyl sounds pretty good, but needed a glue clean, still a couple of clicks and pops.

The picture disc, as usual sounds good but quite cracklyeven after a glue clean, playable and enjoyable, but I wish they had two black discs.

A New Zealand band that some may possibly recognise 

I would categorise the genre as new wave / rock 


The band released  some albums under this name then they moved to England and changed the bands name to The Exponents 

 

Not a bad album overall 

 

Artist - The Dance Exponents 

Title -  Prayers Be Answered

First press on Mushroom records NZ 

ID - L38077

make sure it is the kind of brush that actually electrically connects the bristles to the metal handle (and your hand) so the static is actually drained away.  Some cheap ones don't do this.

I am actually looking for a new carbon brush, I think the cheap one I got from the local record store is crappy.

Is one like the Audio Quest one you are thinking of as it has the metal on the top?

or this other one that is all metal by "AM"

Can't be sure.  Some have metal, but it is insulated from the fibres.

      Item: Sansui SR-212 Vintage 70s Turntable - Japan - Professionally Restored & Upgraded
      Location: Sydney
      Price: $450, open to reasonable offers
      Item Condition: Very Good, recently serviced/restored/upgraded and working.
      Reason for selling: No longer required
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      I recently inherited this Sansui SR-212 turntable , which is of 1970s vintage and is made in Japan. The turntable employs a unique multiple suspension/insulation system to eliminate howling ( it has a suspended sub-chassis design). 
       
      The deck is in really nice condition, no major blemishes to speak of. Even the lid is in good condition, no cracks and the hinges also appear to be working fine.
       
      It did need some minor repair work to get it up and running, so I engaged Chris from Spin Doctor Music here in Sydney to repair/restore the deck for me which he did very well.
       
      In the process the following upgrades were also made to the deck :
      Brand new drive belt Brand new Jelco HS-25 cartridge shell was purchased and installed onto the tonearm Brand new Ortofon 2M Silver MM phono cartridge was purchased, installed and aligned Brand new AUS power cord was installed  
      Initially I thought I might use this Sansui TT in a second system, but It turns out that I won't be making use of it after all.
       
      So , it's up for sale now to someone who can make use of it.
       
      Everything is in good working order, including the arm cueing and auto-return mechanism. Platter speed has been tested by Spin Doctor Music and is accurate and stable at both 33.1/3 and 45 speeds.
       
      Some more info and general specs on this turntable are available here:
      https://www.vinylengine.com/library/sansui/sr-212.shtml
       
      Note of course that this one has the Ortofon 2M Silver cart and Jelco headshell upgrades. The Ortofon 2M Silver seems to sit between the 2M Blue and the 2M Bronze in the Ortofon 2M lineup.  I will also provide the original headshell and also the (probably very worn out) original SC-37 IM cartridge.
       
      I don’t have any boxes or packaging for the deck, so I would prefer local pickup from Sydney.
       
      I've also got the original operation manual for it.
       
      The new Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and Jelco HS-25 headshell together alone would cost over $400 RRP. 
       
      Buyer will need to add their own RCA-RCA phono cable to connect the deck to an amp/phono stage.
       
      Local pickup Sydney only. COD payment is easiest, or happy to receive a bank/BSB or PayPal Friends transfer before pickup.
       
      Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

      A very Black Friday: how the fetish for vinyl is sending prices soaring, a mainstream article on this issue... "...there’s a diehard group of consumers who will continue to support this state of affairs. It’ll never go away because there’s always a market for it – it’s been so over-fetishised that it’s part of the culture now. That’s why the majors have adopted some of these silly pricing policies.”
