#1.Hunt Mark 6 Carbon Fiber Record Brush
If you are looking for the best record brush, the Hunt Mark 6 is the way to go. It picks up dirt very well and doesn’t merely brush the dirt off with its carbon fiber bristles. It simply works the best out of all the record brushes we tried. Unfortunately, it costs a bit more than the rest but we think it is totally worth it.

#1.Hunt Mark 6 Carbon Fiber Record Brush
When it comes to the best record brush, the Hunt Mark 6 is hands down the clear winner in our opinion. This brush comes with two rows of carbon fiber brushes with a felt pad in between them. So the standout feature is that it picks up dirt seamlessly on the record instead of merely moving it around until it falls off. Unfortunately, this is what most other records brushes do.
So basically, the carbon fiber bristles deep clean the record grooves and there is a velvet pad that takes care of the record surface. And best of all, there is no need for a cleaning solution. In general, we’ve tried pretty much every type of record brush out there and this one just seems to work for us. It is great that it is a dry cleaner and won’t get your record wet.
#2.Collector Protector Record Brush
We really like the Collector Protector and think it is the best record brush if you are looking for a combo kit that is affordable. It features a dry self-cleaning record brush and a record-cleaning solution. The record brush is made of carbon fiber and it does a great job of reaching the deep grooves of your records while also eliminating static charge.
We like how the handle rotates in a way such that handle cleans up the bristles, removing dust and dirt very effectively. Essentially it acts as a self-cleaning brush. Finally, you also get a record cleaning solution, which is great for deep cleaning and anti-static. This 10 ml spray bottle does not contain any alcohol and you get a residue-free finish.
#3. AudioQuest Anti-Static Record Brush
For those who want the best record brush, we think the AudioQuest Anti-Static Record Brush is a great choice. It is made of carbon fiber bristles and conductive gold that does a great job of removing small dust. So what we think really makes this record brush stand out is the fact that it has small microscopic dust particles that are deeply embedded in your vinyl records.
Furthermore, this brush actually does a great job of removing most static from your records, which is a far stretch for most other record brush brands. All in all, you can just tell that AudioQuest has put way more research and thought into the way the bristles are designed and how they operate. They just feel premium running them through your hands.
#4.Record Rescue Record Cleaning Brush
The Record Rescue Record Cleaning Brush is another gadget that everyone must have if they want to restore records to the original sound. It is made up of 1 million carbon fibers. First and foremost, we just want to comment a bit on the quality of the brush. It has carbon fiber bristles that are very high quality and tend to fall off way less than the ones from other competitors.
Next, we really like how there’s a one-year warranty on the record cleaning brush, which means the company fully backs up what it makes. This puts extra trust in the product. Finally, we just want to say that while it is definitely a bit cheaper than the other brushes out there, you only really lose a little bit on quality, but not enough to make a real difference.
#5.Boundless Audio Record Cleaner Brush
Lastly, we have the Boundless Audio Record Cleaner Brush, which is another budget-friendly option when it comes to cleaning your vinyl records. It features two rows of carbon fiber bristles. We really like that this record brush is truly electrically conductive, so it eliminates static charges pretty easily, which in turn helps prevent dust and particles from collecting.
Next, we just want to say that the carbon fiber bristles seem pretty firmly planted inside the brush and you never get a situation where they are falling out. And finally, we really like the fact that there is a self-cleaning mechanism, which comes in handy way more than you think.
