Vinyl Pressing Sites - Recommendations anyone?
Jan 11, 2017, 00:40
I know this topic has come up a number of times here in the past and there's a lot of knowledge amongst the musicians on here. I'm interested to know what are the best current recommendations for vinyl pressing companies?

I'm on look out for a business who could just press 300 units of a 10 inch record in a plain inner (would design and print cover myself) for best price but quality good.

Hope you can help.

Cheers

'Scuse I for tangentally butting in...but remember the mastering too. I am at this moment sitting watching the rain and listening to the new John Martyn comp May You Never: The Essential John Martyn (3CDs, £5-99). Apart from the gorgeous content, the sound of it is blissful, even on shitty phones. Not a loud, in your face job. It just.....floats. Mastering was done by Dan Smith at Fluid Mastering http://www.fluidmastering.com. Have a read..they're predominantly but not exclusively analogue and seem very flexible with their services and fees. A goal that you may have thought was out of your price bracket may not be. Dennis Blackham at Skye Mastering's pretty good too, imo. If you want a complete package of loveliness then..just a thought. Buy and listen to that JM. Good luck : )

Brainwave corner here...seeing as they seem caring folk and interested in the end product - they're a step along the way - ask them if they can recommend a presser..they'll have been pleased, or not, with what's happened to stuff they've dealt with. Like, uh, just a thought, man : )
