To get into vinyl, or not? Reply #50 – 2012-12-05 15:25:19 Quote from: almostmitch on 2012-12-05 14:52:24I have an idea, instead of bickering at each other; how about everyone turns this into positive efforts of finding the best quality brush, for the best price! ..because I would like to get a brush.OK, good idea. I have personally experienced a sample of two. The Decca was no good: it shed fibres. The Goldring (seemingly identical in appearance to Engelestaaub's and the Audioquest one previously mentioned) has been fine for over 20 years.We might perhaps conclude that you should go for the type with the pivoted flange. But I see on the UK Amazon site a review of the Milty brush which says it sheds fibres - and it again looks exactly like my Goldring.So it seems that it could be a matter of pot luck. Perhaps that Decca brush I had was just a bad sample and there was no inherent design flaw. Not much help to people looking to buy a brush, of course. I reckon you will just have to buy one that's reasonably priced and hope for the best. It may be a good idea to buy one with a well-known brand name rather than a generic one, since they might have better sample quality control (even if the basic design is the same).
