Clean a fader on a DJ controller

Veröffentlicht in Tech Tips

Faders are the most fragile part of any DJ controller, so one must be very careful when cleaning them.
One must never rub the carbon track (called taper) on the ground of the fader, so one should never touch it.
If a fader has dust or rust particles, on should:
- take a blow off air duster with a thin straw
- put the straw in the fader without touching the ground
- blow off any particule
- then take a vacuum cleaner and try to grab all these dust or rust particles.
