Dust mitigation

I struggle with allergies, so I have an oversized air purifier running continuously on high (except for when I’m playing music).

Almost all of the dust ends up on the prefilter of the HEPA filter, so I don’t bother with covers anymore.

I also try to sweep often as my feet tend to collect resistor leads :sob:


I have an uncovered 104hp skiff and a few 4ms Pods—all full of modules—that have unfortunately accumulated considerable dust due to neglect. Does anyone have recommendations for removing dust from Eurorack/modular equipment specifically? Should I remove all of the modules?

I would do a full clean - remove modules, dust the insides and out and then hit it with one of these every day. Been working great for me.

Shower curtains, cut to size and lightly burnt along the cut edges with a lighter so they don’t shed threads. They are easily set on fire so be careful. The fabric kind is better than PVC.

I wouldn’t use normal fabric because dust gets stuck inside it.

Any more input on this? I’m looking for some sort of duster with suction. I dust now with a small brush but feel I’m just moving the dust around. Would like something high quality to suction the dust up.
