A BIG, warm and luscious sound. Instruments are clearly identifiable even when playing en mass. The Bass is deep, the midrange 'golden' and the treble is sweet and liquid. A wonderful recording.
Surface noise is present as moderate 'ticks' on both sides. While not intrusive, they are audible. Price has been adjusted to reflect this.
Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
