Set contains five 10″ vinyl 78rpm records with a total of ten re-mastered songs.
It took the better part of two months to re-master the original metal parts into this sound experience. As a matter of fact, a signed (repro) image of Glenn Miller was pinned on the wall above our studio speakers and – whenever we listened to a new version, we asked ourselves, if Glenn Miller would have liked it. Responsible audio engineers for this project: Michaela Merz and Mark Cederquist.
The records will be cut with a “micro groove” stylus. However: To accommodate standard groove pickups, we will cut the records a bit deeper which opens the groove at the top allowing the tracking with standard groove styli as well. The record set is not intended for mechanical or heavy pickups. Tested with Shure 78rpm Mono stylus and Astatic P-51-1 78rpm cartridge.
The whole production process took more than a year. But it’s ready now and we’re sure it was well worth the effort and the wait.
