We were very pleased to be appointed a dealer for The Disc Doctor cleaning products back in 2002, and his cleaning products have been best sellers for 15 years now. The Disc Doctor Record Cleaning Fluid is used by The Rodgers & Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound, The Yale University Historical Sound Recordings, The Center for Popular Music and The Boston Public Library.It is widely recommended: The Vintage Jazz Mart; Dr David Evans, Professor of Music, University of Memphis; Nighthawk Records; Raymond R. Wile, noted Diamond Disc collector & Edison authority; Primyl Vinyl Exchange Newsletter; Listener Magazine; Positive Feedback; Audiophile Voice; Ultimate Audio; The Absolute Sound; Stereophile; TNT-Audio.
If you link to the Disc Doctor's site (www.discdoc.com) you'll see there are additional brushes available for other size records. We can supply any of these, but only stock the LP and 45 sizes.

It's worth noting that if a record is physically damaged there's nothing you can do to repair it. Often dust and grit has been ground into the groove's walls.
The Disc Doctor have released another product called Quick Wash. Although initially intended for people with vacuum cleaning machines it can also be used manually. It's a one step process, without a separate rinse stage.
For those with large numbers of vinyl records we are the agent for the Moth Record Cleaning Machine, available fully assembled or as a kit. More recently we have started selling the Nitty Gritty range, which includes the only machine on the market to clean both sides of a record at the same time. We also now have Australia's most popular vacuum record cleaning machine, the Record Doctor V.
In between the manual systems and the record cleaning machines are two brands of record cleaning kits, the Knosti and SpinClean. Both are popular and customers who have bought either are getting good results.
