TRU-SWEEP Anti Static SPINNING Uni Pivot Dust Brush
Static is all around us and depending on weather conditions at times, it can be very bad. Ive seen instances where a static discharge took out some expensive gear. There are a few precautions that can be taken to reduce the static in your surroundings but what we are going to focus on here is the stylus static as it happens in real time. This is what causes the annoying clicks and pops - these can only be removed using an anti static brush travelling at the same speed as the stylus. And for this we designed the Tru-Sweep Anti-static brush. It looks great and it works.
COMES FULLY ASSEMBLED IN 3 PARTS - ROD & THE BASE.
Measure from top of the plinth to the top of the platter to get the size you need. Each unit is adjustable in height by 3/8". Round large base and the riser is constructed of 304 S.S. same as the lifter. The 1/4" arm rod and the removable brush head is 316 Surgical S.S, this is important as it contains the greatest proprieties in the S.S. Family wich makes it most suitable for our purpose which is to drain static as it happens in real time. Sliding along the arm is a collet used as fine tracking/skate force. In the rear of the arm is the counter weight adjustable with a set screw. The brush of course is fine soft Camel hair also removable for easy washing. The drain ground wire is attached to the large base.

- The perfectly balanced Uni-pivot arm allows the Camel Hair brush to gently track the grooves of the record.

- The soft Camel Hair brush gently sweeps across the record picking up fine dust and drains the static build up thru a connected ground wire keeping your stylus dust and static free.

- Allen Key included for adjusting height & removing head as all have set screws. Blu tac included for the base.
- Ground Wire is also included. (Color may vary)
How it Works
Hair can conduct static electricity. The material that the Tru-Sweep is made from has continuity throughout the entire build of the unit. Once the static is encountered on the record, the electrons flow up the camel hair encounter the grounding conductor via wand portion where it travels to the uni-pivot bearing then transferred to the height extension of Tru-Sweep then to the base and discharged by the ground wire. This is connected to your Phono Pre-amp ground lug or to your receiver ground lug or amplifier ground lug.
LIMITLESS HEIGHT can be reached by adding solid stackable stainless steel pucks.
Canadian based Integrityhifi, creators of the popular Tru-Lift Tone Arm Lifter, recently introduced Tru-Sweep, a static draining arm and brush combination that gives users a terrific new tool in the battle against pops and clicks. A thoroughly modern and redesigned take on old school and largely ineffective dust busters such as the Watts Dust Bug and the cartridge head shell brushes many of us owned as kids, the Tru-Sweep is anything but ineffective and a visual knock out, bonus! Crafted from solid 304 & 316 surgical stainless steel this is one sexy beast that's sure to look right at home with any stylish high end turntable you pair it with. Sitting on the back left pod of my VPI Avenger's 3 legs, it looks like it came straight from the VPI factory. In other words there's nothing 'after market' or low rent looking about it, quite the contrary. Plus I'm a sucker for beautifully machined objects and Tru-Sweep definitely fits that bill. After thorough torture testing in dry static producing forced hot air conditions, Tru-Sweep never once let me down, continuously keeping my records quiet and dust free. This bad-ass arm now falls squarely into my turntable essentials category. Recommended with 2 big thumbs up!
As with the Tru-Lift, the Tru-Sweep will help your stylus last longer and save you a little bit of work; although, the Tru-Sweep also helps your records sound better. All in all, another great accessory from Integrity Hi-Fi.
