Blast Away Static for Better Sounding LPs and CDs
Static electricity is an LP owner's enemy. It's what attracts dust and dirt to vinyl, and that can damage the surface over time. You can clean away debris, but why not help prevent it accumulating in the first place?
Zap static with Zerostat. A couple of trigger pulls does the trick. Zerostat 3 is the latest version of the original piezo-electric antistatic pistol that's been an audiophile favorite for years. It reduces static on insulating surfaces such as phonograph records, film negatives, and more.
Here's How it Works
Zerostat 3 produces negative and positive ions that couple with the positive and negative static charges on the surface of your LP, effectively neutralizing static electricity. Just hold the Zerostat pistol about 12 inches away from your LP. Squeeze the trigger slowly, and a powerful stream of positive ions projects over a spread of about 16 inches. Release it slowly, and negative ions are produced. It's just that easy!
Regular use of Zerostat 3 can release dirt and dust on records, eliminating pops and crackles caused by static 'hot spots.' It's also ideal for reducing static charges on CDs and DVDs.
No Batteries Needed
Zerostat 3 is constructed of a durable hard plastic. It's built to last, and is good for at least 50,000 trigger operations. Best of all, it requires no power supply, batteries, or refills of any kind. Zerostat includes a special ion-indicator which shows you that Zerostat is working. Just plug the indicator into the end of the 'pistol,' squeeze the handle, and a small neon tube will gently glow red.
1 Year Warranty
indispensable29 September 2020I bought one of these about 18 years ago (mine is red) and it's still going strong, according to the little tester nozzle supplied. Every record gets cleaned before playing (so my expensive cartridge should virtually last forever) on a Moth vacuum cleaner (similar age) with L'Art du Son cleaner and Disc Doctor brushes, and I use the Milty on every side I play, and occasionally on CDs for good measure. It works OK if you both squeeze and release the trigger while pointing it at the record, but (and it took me a long time to wake up to this) you don't really want positive AND negative particles fired at your record, because they cancel each other out. So now I just squeeze the trigger (slowly) pointed at the record on the platter (twice - you may as well, these things don't exactly wear out quickly) then point it away from the record before you release the trigger. I do believe it works better this way. Give the surface of the platter mat a treatment every so often, even the stylus. Easy. Just buy one.
