Back during CDs heyday, I remember seeing CD tongs for sale at places like Audio Adviser, etc. They reminded me of a pair of plastic kitchen serving tongs, except that they had a molded tip which fit inside the CD center hole.
The idea (supposedly) was to help keep fingerprints off CDs, but I'm betting it caused a lot more dropped / scratched CDs then it helped with fingerprints. I thought about getting one to keep my hand further away from the strong eddy currents I was experiencing while holding the CD close to the tape eraser.
As with all things audiophile, these things were exorbitantly priced for what they were. Since I'm primarily an LP guy, I simply skipped "treating" my CDs with the tape eraser, and stuck with a CD Stop Light paint pen and their glow in the dark disc.
But speaking of LPs, I've read similar (though less frequent) claims for bulk tape erasers making improvements there too. That's even more strange, since there's no metal at all involved
Wait'll they get a load of this back in Des Moines.
