The resurgence of vinyl has led to a big problem: no one's built any pressing machines in decades. Until now. The WarmTone Record Pressing Machine is poised to replace the comparatively ancient machines currently hard at work to satiate our appetite for wax. Fully automated, it uses modern technologies to let operators monitor and control every step of the process, including pressing, trimming, and labelling, on multiple machines at once. Its advanced steam heating and water cooling systems virtually eliminate warps, and cuts pressing timeframes nearly in half, improving quality control at the same time that it increases production.
With a classic design that's as timeless as it is technical, the Ballfinger Reel-To-Reel Tape Player is the ideal tool for enjoying esoteric recordings. The controls on the left-hand side of its hefty aluminum chassis are for playback, while those on the right handle recording. It's compatible with rolls up to 30mm in size, can be operated vertically or horizontally, and thanks to the ultra-precise digital counter on the front, you'll know the elapsed time down to the hundredth of a second.
