I’m working with an early SL 24, some of the faders are not smooth.  Is there an “official” product that is recommended?  Anyone have something they’ve used with success?  I have Deoxit fader lube, but thought I’d check in first...

The most common cleaner used is from a company called Caig. They make the DeOxit series of products. They have different versions, one for Contacts (input / output jacks, and one for Gold contacts) and one for Fader cleaning. Here is a link to their Website:​

These products can be found at Guitar Center's, electronic stores, or most music retail webstores (Sweetwater, Full Compass, AMS, etc.)
