This guy speaks my language and he pulls no punches on the quality of recordings or the fear of some musicians who rely too much on technical tools. Watch this video:
Ramseur Records, in conjunction with John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone Recording, is proud to offer bespoke reel-to-reel series. Over the past few years, Ramseur Records has enlisted the audio services of John Vanderslice to produce and record all analog releases by Samantha Crain and Bombadil. These analog recordings were recorded directly to tape at Tiny Telephone Recording in San Francisco, CA. Vanderslice went as far as overseeing the cutting of the vinyl from the master tapes by the legendary Bernie Grundman. Now, Vanderslice will take the analog process a step further and personally duplicate reel-to-reel copies from the master tapes. These master tape copies will be duplicated in the same studio where each of the projects were recorded. Each master tape copy will use the same reel-to-reel equipment that Vanderslice used to make the master recording. The customer can request tape preference, output level, speed (15ips, 30ips) and tape size (1/4 to 1/2 inch) - making their copy personalized and tailor-made for their own reel-to-reel machine.
