I just cleaned all my tube sockets and tube pins, my interconnects, amp RCA jacks, speaker terminals, etc. with isopropyl... Inside and out...

The difference was like a substantial I/C upgrade... Maybe better...

No kidding...

Just do it!... (m.)

Great reminder.

What did you use to apply the isopropyl?

Pal: For the tube sockets, various dental brushes you can get at any drug store...  Q-tips for everything else... The dental brushes come in three sizes [sm., med., lg.]...

The only hard part is getting inside of the grounding shrouds on the RCA plugs... If you flatten out a Q-tip, that should do it...

Note: I used 0000 steel wool to brighten up the tube pins first; that is, the vintage tube pins that tend to get kinda brownish...

Definite improvement...  (m.)

Do   this  at the  beginning of the  year, and  again  around  4th of  July  every  year.  Makes a difference  for  sure.
