EXTERNAL VACUUM RECORD CLEANER
Celebrating 23 Years!
Gritty Co. of California specializes in hi value professional record cleaners.
In 1992, KAB received approval to use the precision Lexan top plate -the heart
of every Nitty Gritty model- in an external vacuum record cleaner of our own
design, The KAB EV-1. Now celebrating the 23rd year of production!

Weighing in at under 5 Lbs, It ships nearly anywhere in the world at very low
cost. The EV-1 offers a significant cost savings over models with a built in
The latest design EV-1 is fully
compatible with all style vacuums including home, shop or in wall types. And
the fluid remains inside the EV-1 making it perfectly safe for home style
With the KAB EV-1, you apply the fluid and
rotate the records manually. Includes Turner/Label protector, applicator brush
and 4 oz of LP fluid . The vacuum energizes the velvet covered vac sweep slot.
This action pulls the fluid into the EV1 enclosure where the fluid remains. A
series of baffles, venturi air jets and a fabric filter keep any fluid or dirt
from reaching your vacuum. A drain plug is provided to empty the EV-1.
A great record cleaning value! And remember, with
the KAB EV-1 you are getting the famous Nitty Gritty record cleaning

Most households have a vacuum cleaner, so
you already have the key ingredient to better sounding vinyl. All you need now
is the EV-1!
Operation is really very easy. And once you
get the hang of it, only takes a minute or so to clean a record.
And remember, after cleaning on a KAB EV-1,
the record is ready to play or store away. No waiting for the record to "air
dry", only to become contaminated and noisy again.

The really great features to take note of
with the KAB EV-1 Cleaner are, I believe, the ease of use and low cost. Ever
since its introduction in 1992, the EV-1 has been a favorite of cost conscious
record collectors and audiophiles.
There simply is no better way to clean
vinyl. The test of time has shown that wet scrub vacuum removal is the accepted
and trusted method to effectively clean vinyl. The micro groove is so small,
that the least little bit of contamination left behind will make noise.
Other models offer additional convenience
features like built in vacuum, motor drive and fluid application. If you find
these features desirable, take a look at them. And don't miss the famous Model
1 Basic LP cleaner, a great value. But remember, all models will clean your
records to the same degree.
There are cheaper versions of the EV-1, but
they lack the venturi and filter and so will only work with noisy shop vacs.
That's ok if you can work with that limitation. The EV-1 is just a better, more
thoughtful design. And it has the Nitty Gritty reputation standing behind it as
