Hello all...

This is my first post.  I have a Beogram 4002 with an MMC20CL, which I love.  I haven't found a good way to clean the stylus.  The Discwasher stylus brush isn't thin enough to fit under the stylus when the tonearm is in its resting position.  (There's not a lot of room between the stylus and the top surface of the turntable.)  I don't have the original brush.

Any suggestions?  Are there low-profile brushes?  What do others do to clean the stylus of a cartridge mounted on a 4002?

I searched the forum, but couldn't find anything.  Thanks for any help.

A USD 0.02 SMMC4 cleaner

1. Buy Original Magic Eraser pad, cut to size, use the rest for cleaning aluminum, plastic, inox and what so ever.

2. Insert a clean unused tooth pick end, 5 Mm. into the flat end of the ME piece.

3. Just dip the pickup needle into the professional pickup cleaner a couple of times, if very dirty scrape carefully with the pointed edge of the professional pick up cleaner.

3. Result, the pics taken before cleaning came out bad, but there is a difference to be seen, I'm not a professional photographer, I'm a professional pickup cleaner Laughing

Thanks.  Does that brush fit between the stylus tip and the turntable while the cartridge is mounted?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.  (The new forum has one check a box to have replies emailed to you.  I'm still not used to that, as the old forum one would get automatic replies.)

Yes, the "dry" brush just fits between the cartridge/stylus and the turntable.  There is also a "wet" brush that is attached to the inside of the cleaning solution bottle cap.  The "wet" brush is the one I use most often.
