Shellacs have a wider track groove than vinyl records and need heavier and special pickups and drives (78 rpm):
A few grams are enough for a record, the cartridge of a shellac can weigh up to 300g. In order to “keep this weight on track”, a very hard material is required: Shellac.
Coarse particles were added to this material, an excretion of the lacquer scale insect. Depending on the condition of the shellac, these particles cause noises when playing.
There are algorithms, so-called de-noisers, that try to filter out this interference, but at the expense of the sound quality:
If you take away noises, you take away music!
With our transfers, we take a riskier route and instead of a version that has been post-processed “to death”, we offer a somewhat noisy, but sonically richer version. This is achieved through an ingenious form of high-quality dubbing that we have professionalized over many years of precision work.
After decades of listening, we have a simple tip: Please try to get used to these “background noises” as sounds from distant times. The greater joy of a musically rich recording will prevail.
