Hi Steven,
Copies are $20 + $5 shipping. It will take a week or so to ship. Paypal or a check is good... my paypal address is doninphilly@gmail.com (please use friend & family option).

Thank you!

Hi - do you have any of these available still? Or can you make up additional copies? I loved mine, but made the (happy) mistake of playing it for a fellow collector, who was ecstatic upon hearing it...so i gave it to him. So now i need another if possible please!

Looks and sounds very good, Donnie !

What are you using for the substrate (disc) material ?

Is there a thread or link that describes your process ?


It is encouraging that someone is making new records that can be played on an acoustic wind-up phonograph. :)

When I played mine at my friend's house recently, we used his Victor VI. The tone and quality of the recording were the best sound I’ve ever heard out of a photograph of that nature.

Frank, The original discs are molded in silicone rubber, which acts as the stamper. Then I developed a polyurethane blend to replicate the properties of shellac. This particular disc was cut by a studio and out of 30 sides cut, was by far the best. I can't take credit for the sound quality of that one, other than fronting R&D costs :shock:

There are bits and pieces of info here and there, but not in one place.

Everyone should get this record! I got mine and I love it, I have played it many times and the quality of sound and manufacture is great.
