78 rpm records were the standard format before the 33 rpm vinyl came out. Just a quick search on Ebay will show how big this market still is.
The problems with 78’s are the following:
1. Most modern turntables won’t play at 78 rpm speed
2. 78’s are old made of shellac, which is quite fragile
3. They are old and therefore need to be cleaned thoroughly to be played properly
The good points about 78’s are:
1. Well, only one….most of them have never been printed to vinyl or CD. So they represent an invaluable source of previously unreleased music!
This is where we come in.
If you have 78’s that need to be transferred to CD or high-def media suach as DVD-A, just give us a call and we will be more than happy to help.
