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.
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.
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.
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.
