Two rows of soft carbon fiber filaments easily remove the unwanted dust and contaminants leaving your records grooves clean while prolonging the life of vinyl and stylus.

Vinyl Cleaning Machine – Record Doctor – V – Record Cleaning

Record Doctor – V – Record Cleaning Machine

Vacuum cleaning your records with the Record Doctor V is the best way to get dirt, dust, and grime out of the grooves and let you hear the music you’ve been missing. The Record Doctor brings a number of benefits to LP listening. It improves the sound quality, helps your records maintain their value, and helps extend the life of your LPs. Cleaner records sound better than dirty records.

The vacuum powered Record Doctor is the most highly recommended low-price record cleaning machine in the world. Record Doctor V features the same vacuum motor and vacuum cleaning strip as much more expensive machines, but it does not have the expensive motor that turns records for you.
So, turn the records by hand, and save a handful of cash! The Record Doctor V features a precision roller bearing to make records spin easily, and a handy storage tank for the easy removal of spent record cleaning fluids.

The Record Doctor V comes complete with a 4 oz fluid applicator bottle, applicator brush, and illustrated cleaning instructions. This product is intended for use with 110-120V~60Hz power sources.

X-Ray Audio – The Documentary

The strange story of Soviet music on the bone.

The iconic images of gramophone grooves cut onto x-rays of skulls, ribcages and bones have captured the collective imagination way beyond the music scene. Now for the first time, the complete story of the Soviet x-ray record has emerged, as told by the people who made it happen.

Six Classic Albums Re-issued with ‘half-speed’

Hear The Rolling Stones like never before.

Six classic albums have been newly mastered at half-speed to extract every last detail from the original recordings.

One of the most sought after means of reproduction, the artisan process takes more than four times as long as regular mastering and involves playing original master tape back at 16 2/3 RPM and turning the cutting lathe at half-speed to give the cutter head more time to render the dynamic details of the recording into the groove on the lacquer.

The six records lined up to receive the treatment include: The Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main Street, The Police’s Ghost In Machine, John Martyn’s Solid Air, Cream’s Disraeli Gears, Simple Minds’ New Gold Dream and Fire And Water by Free.

They will be cut at Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell, one of the world’s leading mastering engineers, who describes the benefits of half-speed mastering in simple terms: “It brings a clear, crisp sound with much better stereo separation and attention to detail than previous versions.”

Expected to retail at £32 each, these six releases mark the start of a campaign to half-speed master several other albums from the Universal catalogue. [via The Independent]

Watch Miles Showell demonstrate the fine art of cutting records at Abbey Road Studios in our short film below:
