How to Clean a Turntable Needle

Here are a few pointers to keep in mind while cleaning your turntable needle.

Cleaning in steps

  1. Place the brush on the rear side of the needle, positioned furthest from you
  2. Begin to gently pull forward
  3. Lift the tool off the needle and begin again at the far point, repeating the dragging motion


Make sure to be gentle in the process. After a few passes, your stylus will be properly cleaned and ready for usage. Here are some points to remember:

  • Never brush forward to backward over the needle, nor side to side
  • Make sure to only brush from rear to front
  • Use a magnifier to ensure your stylus is clean and free of any potential debris
