TURNTABLE Q’s πŸ‘ Name: Arek. Job Title: Head of Galvanics department at @thevinylfactory  πŸ”΄Q1: What record player is this? πŸ”΅A1: Monitor Audio ET500 with an SME 3009 tone arm. πŸ”΄Q2: Why do you test every single metalwork that comes through the factory on it? πŸ”΅A2: Well, it accommodates 14” discs, which is the size of the original lacquer &  the subsequent metalwork we grow from it. This specific one is an ex-EMI staple and based loosely on the classic Linn LP12. The sound quality is perfect ‘cos it’s not bass-heavy and we need to test for clicks & pops which tend to be present in the upper frequencies! πŸ”΄Q3: What’s your fave record you’ve tested on this player? πŸ”΅A3: @wildbeastsband ‘Two Dancers’ …. It suited the deck so well and sounded amazing!. πŸ”΄πŸ”΅πŸ”΄πŸ”΅πŸ”΄πŸ”΅πŸ”΄πŸ”΅πŸ”΄πŸ”΅ Cheers Arek!!!!!! #turntable #recordplayer #thevinylfactory #sound #metalwork #record #wildbeasts

🎀Monday🎼Music🎢Fact🎹 Did you know that when New Order released Blue Monday the sleeve was designed by Peter Saville (who also designed sleeves for Joy Division, Roxy Music, Wham! & a load of other cool bands). Peter modelled his Blue Monday idea on a floppy disc and used a 3-step die-cut process to create the finished product. The process cost £1.10 per sleeve. When the  record was released, DJS and New Order fans could pick it up at their local store for only £1. Talk about grabbing a bargain. πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ#vinyl #recordsleeves #neworder #petersaville #monday #record #design #art #thevinylfactory #music #fact
