Vinyl Clinic



Now with Vinyl Clinic we can take care of your records to return them to their original pristine glory! Bring your LP records to us or mail them in, we'll give them the same professional deep clean service that we use for the records sold on the store (as an optional service).


This service costs 3,25 Euros per disc (incluing a new audiophile archival grade polylined inner sleeve and a new PE plastic outer sleeve).


Please contact us for details and instructions about how to send or deliver your records to us and for an estimate time for cleaning the number of records you need.


Note: Vinyl Clinic is a service for records already owned by the customer. For details about our Professional Record Cleaning service option for records bought in our store, with a special lower cost of 2,50 Euros per unit, please click here.





What is it and why should records be cleaned?

 

Professional wet cleaning vinyl LP's using the right method with a good fluid/vacuum type Record Cleaning Machine (RCM) and the right cleaning fluids, is one of the best upgrades you can make to take the best sound from your records with minimal noise interference. Not only your records will sound better but also the lifespan and integrity of the stylus on the cartridge of your turntable will increase dramatically reducing wear because tracking a clean groove offers a much easier challenge to the stylus tip. We recommend that all records, old or new, are cleaned to obtain the best possible sound and achieve maximum longevity to records and equipment. Because many customers don't have the equipment or the time to do this themselves, we at Vinyl Gourmet decided to offer this service as an option to our customers and for the records bought in our store, and now also for your records even if not originally bought at Vinyl Gourmet.


 

Our cleaning method... the Vinyl Gourmet way!

 

From all professional and amateur cleaning methods that we tried, we believe that Wet Cleaning with a RCM is still the most effective and thorough method to clean records, providing the best tested results for high quality sound reproduction. To make it a true Gourmet experience only the very best is enough.


We use distilled reverse osmosis purified water (pharmaceutical and medical grade) for residue free rinsing, L'Art Du Son alcohol free antistatic cleaning fluid created by Loricraft Audio, Clearaudio and Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab microfiber brushes and a Milty ZeroStat antistatic gun using a simple but extremely effective Okki Nokki Record Cleaning Machine made in Germany.


On our three step cleaning process we start by softly dry brushing the record to remove any larger particles from the surface, then we do a quick pass with purified water for the initial vacuum, followed by a longer pass with L'Art Du Son fluid that we spread softly with a brush and leave to settle in for a couple of minutes to allow it to work and release every tiny bit of dust that is sucked out on this second vacuum operation, and finally we do a final rinse and vacuum again with purifed water to remove any residue from the cleaning process. The record is then zapped with the ZeroStat gun and inserted in a brand new polylined heavy paper inner sleeve for protection (included with the service) and it arrives at your door perfectly clean and ready to play without any further delays or worrying about it at all, just enjoy the music with wondefull analog sound! The true Vinyl Gourmet experience!
