After talking with @MoatsArt and @JK-47 I figured I would post what I would call a beginner vinyl thread. I am a complete noob and with the advice and help of @shaizada , @drfindley , and Brian over at the Analog Room I decided to just post a few simple items I would call the starter kit. I will add posts and potentially videos of how I do things and of course comments from the experts are always welcome as is any advice. Anyway onto the starter kit: 1) Mobile Fidelity Record Cleaning Brush: Reason why I chose this one is because you can buy replacement pads thus adding value to the brush itself. Use is pretty simple spray record wash on brush then apply to record in circular motion with the grooves. Let it glide no need to apply a ton of pressure. $20 http://www.amazon.com/Mobile-Fideli...eywords=Mobile+fidelity+record+cleaning+brush 2) Mobile Fideltiy Inner Sleeves (50pk): Reason is that after you clean a record it's not a great idea to put that record back into the dirty sleeve. Thus you use nice clean sleeves to ensure your record stays clean while it's being stored. $20 http://www.amazon.com/Mobile-Fideli...05535&sr=8-1&keywords=Mobile+fidelity+sleeves 3) Hunt: EDA Mark 6 Carbon Fiber Record Brush: Recommended highly by Findley this is the one I use it is a little more expensive than the Audioquest one but I like it better. This is used to brush the record before playing as it keeps the grooves clean of debris. $30 - http://www.amazon.com/Hunt-Carbon-F...=1459905640&sr=8-1&keywords=Hunt+record+brush $15 - http://www.amazon.com/AudioQuest-LP...05732&sr=8-1&keywords=Audioquest+record+brush Mobile Fidelity Super Record Wash (32oz): Recommended to me by Analog room just picked it up and it seems to do a great job. $25 http://www.amazon.com/Mobile-Fideli...05823&sr=8-2&keywords=Mobile+fidelity+cleaner Mobile Fidelity Stylus Cleaner: Recommended to my by Analog Room but there are alternatives. Shaizada says the cheapest thing out there is the Mr. Clean Original Magic Eraser which I haven't used yet. He also recommends an Onzow Stylus Tip Cleaner. I have used both the Mobile Fidelity Brush and the OnZow and like the OnZow the best. It's basically a gel that you lightly dip the tip into and then release. Does a great job cleaning the stylus $25 http://www.amazon.com/Mobile-Fideli...906148&sr=8-1&keywords=Mobile+fidelity+stylus $5 http://www.amazon.com/Mr-Clean-Magi...r=8-2&keywords=Mr+clean+original+magic+eraser $40 http://www.amazon.com/ZERODUST-ONZO...?ie=UTF8&qid=1459906341&sr=8-1&keywords=Onzow Overall it's up to you what tools you use but these I have been recommended and found so far to work well. Plan to spend around $100 and this will last you quite a long time depending on how quickly you are buying records.
