If you can stretch to it a wet record cleaning machine will solve this problem. The Okki Nokki was a good investment for me.

RE: electrostatic current help me
I usually fix my mat to the platter with three (or four) penny-sized pieces of double sided adhesive tape. Not the thick one with foam core of course.
This keeps the mat from coming off with the record.

Not really sure about how to avoid the static charge in the first place – except washing the LPs with a good RCM (a recommendation which I second).
Increasing the air humidity in your listening room will reduce static buildup – and possibly even improve your well-being. In winter, the air in heated buildings tends to become extremely dry.

Or try using "Nagaoka antistatic record sleeves" and a 'Zerostat 3", works for meSmile

RE: electrostatic current help me
I used to have this but a good RCM like the Okki Nokki does completely cure this plus the use of Anti-static sleeves

I found it particularly worse on the new heavyweight vinyl

Agreed! Smile

But I find it incredible that in 2018, there are still folk who don't use a wet/vac RCM - or an ultrasonic tank - and so suffer from static. Sad

thanks to everyone for the suggestions, with other turntables (Thorens Td 125) never had problems of electrostatic current.

+1 on the static sleeves! Best solution to permanently eliminating static. The mat will stop sticking to the records, the records will stop attracting dirt.
