Yes, YOU. Clean your stuff!

I was experiencing some crackling on some of the knobs on my mixer so I took a flashlight to it, looked closely and saw dust.

What did I do? I opened it up. Off came all the knobs, unscrewed the bottom and had LOTS of dust. I should have taken pictures, but anyway here I was looking at a mixer with dust where I didn't think dust could go.

I sprayed the hell out of everything with compressed air and did a lot of picking with tweezers to get as much as I could out of the cracks.

With everything back together, the mixer sounds (and looks) much better.

So my advice to all of you - next time you're bored, take the time to clean some of your gear, you might be surprised.

I remember back when I had turntables the dust would wreak havoc on my mixer so I know what you mean.

I just cover my piano with old rugs, works well enough. The speakers, computers and the turntable are a whole another thing... thanks for reminding me to get another can of compressed air, mine is almost dead.

I don't know about where you're from but I got the pack of cans at Costco. These things are always great to have. Is there any stores around you where you can buy them in bulk?
