Hey, guys: I was just wondering what some of you use to get rid of static on your LPs. I've been getting a few lately (usually from EU manufacturers) that are just loaded and impossible to play (and record) without an obnoxious amount of crackle. I try to kill it with an anti static cloth and some distilled water and it only seems to partially mitigate the problem.

Has anyone ever tried Static Guard? I'm not so eager to spend $99 USD on that static gun-thing, but all advice is appreciated.

@OP: Are you sure it's static and not just lots of surface noise from imperfections in the vinyl itself?

I've had a few newer records have surprising amounts of surface noise that no amount of cleaning (with a vacuum machine) eliminated, and static didn't appear to be an issue (the records were perfectly shiny black after cleaning).
