Record brush “Christo”

Inspired by the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, we decided to "wrap up" in a real metal skin a limited series record brushes and emphasizes the value of music and especially the record as a sound medium.

Due to the high amount of orders, the production currently requires about four weeks.

Description

INNOVATION

ramar’s brushes are cha­rac­te­ri­zed by a uni­que brush trim. Six dou­ble rows of car­bon fibres and two rows of goat hair are used in ela­bo­ra­te hand­work in our work­shop in Ber­lin. The spe­ci­fic arran­ge­ment of the brist­le rows ensu­res excel­lent dust absorp­ti­on. The six dou­ble rows with mil­li­ons of car­bon fibres tho­rough­ly feel every groo­ve and are sup­por­ted by the two rows of goat hair. Whe­ther fine dust or lar­ger dirt par­ti­cles — the uni­que mix­tu­re of car­bon fibres and goat hair care­ful­ly remo­ves every par­ti­cle from the sur­face and picks it up safely.

The mate­ri­al pro­per­ties of the indi­vi­du­al com­pon­ents and the design of the brushes ensu­re opti­mum dis­si­pa­ti­on of exis­ting elec­tro­sta­tic char­ge. At the same time, howe­ver, they also pre­vent their for­ma­ti­on during cleaning.

BODY

Chris­to is made of solid wood. The woo­den sur­face is cove­r­ed with a real metal skin. First, the metal lay­er is app­lied to the brush body and left to har­den. After­wards, the metal is san­ded and polis­hed to a high gloss. Fina­ly the sur­face is sea­led to pre­vent fin­ger­prints and to ensu­re dura­bi­li­ty and per­sis­tence. The brist­le cover is made of alu­mi­ni­um refi­ned with elec­tro­less nickel. Elec­tro­less nickel lay­ers are excep­tio­nal­ly wear-resistant, offer very high cor­ro­si­on pro­tec­tion and are conductive.

Sto­ring the brush in a case incre­a­ses its dura­bi­li­ty and pro­tects car­bon fib­re and goat hair from dama­ge and dirt. For an excel­lent clea­ning result, we recom­mend to dust the brushes befo­re use and at regu­lar inter­vals with the clea­ning pad made of natu­ral felt supplied.

SERVICE

Each brush is pro­vi­ded with a seri­al num­ber. This data­ba­se with pro­duc­tion infor­ma­ti­on allows us to easi­ly trace who made which brush and when, even after several years. At the same time it is also pos­si­ble to check which mate­ri­als were used. At the customer’s request and if necessa­ry, the fibres can be rene­wed and thus the brush can be “over­hau­led”. We are plea­sed to stay in clo­se con­ta­ct with our cus­to­mers and offer an exclu­si­ve repair ser­vice. Do you have any ques­ti­ons? Plea­se send us a mes­sa­ge to info@ramar.berlin or use our con­ta­ct form.
