    Shellac 78s

    The older type records, usually referred to as "78s", were made of shellac, a material that does not tolerate alcohol, a common ingredient in modern cleaners. Record Restore Shellac is a special formulation which achieves deep cleaning without risk to the more fragile shellac record material.

    Unless your records are new, replacing the old inner sleeves after cleaning is highly recommended to avoid the risk of re-contamination with contaminants such as dust and mould spores.

    Static electricity on a record attracts all manner of fine particles from the surrounding environment and binds them to the surface.

    Existing Sleeve

    Paper sleeves, being a wood product, are to be avoided as they are a source of dust if not actual damage to the record surface.

    The plastic inner sleeves used in years gone by - and even sometimes today - are not anti-static and may impart a static charge as the record slides in and out.

    Restoring my 35 year old record collection

    Being a slothful man, I opted for the cleaning service over the kit and have had 90 LPs restored. The difference/transformation has been astounding, wondrous. I am no longer distracted by background sounds and crackles and interference…..I can listen properly to the music. I can enjoy it. I can concentrate on it and appreciate the tones/music/instruments. It is just remarkable.
    I cannot speak too highly of Record Restore. It just transforms the medium to a level where every nuance of the original recording/pressing is allowed through.
