Japanese cable and accessories company Furutech launch the new SK-III electrostatic brush, designed to remove unwanted static charge from a range of audio-visual media, enhancing sound and picture quality.
Originally developed by SFC of Japan, the patented SK-III electrostatic brush is a new and improved version of the earlier SK-II and has already proved to be a hit in its local market – including in some unexpected places.
“If it’s good enough for the Japanese Police Force…”, says Chris Green of Sound Fowndations, Furutech’s UK distributor, referring to the fact that the SK-III has become the Force’s trusted choice in crime scene investigations thanks to its reliability and effectiveness in removing tiny dust particles and static interference.
The SK-III uses a combination of natural goat hair surrounded by patented static discharge fibres made from specially structured and treated acrylic. The static discharge fibres are chemically coated with copper sulfide to be electrically conductive, and are set back 15mm from the tip of the brush so that only the soft goat hair touches your media.
The SK-III also features a new rhodium-coated metal grounding sleeve for enhanced conductivity, as well as 10% more super-fine static discharge fibres compared to its predecessor, the SK-II.
The SK-III electrostatic AV brush is available now, priced at £110.
