bugsyregal : @redefrecords I understand the overhead would be a bit higher, but you'd be surprised at how in demand it would be if you converted to 180 gram vinyl!!! Imagine re-releasing Supply for Demand on that stuff...
thebeardedscott : @kevagra
redefrecords : @bugsyregal Whats up friend. I understand your suggestion and would like to offer some additional insights into the process. Yes, as you suggested, it would cost a little bit more for raw materials (and shipping too) to produce a 180g pressing vs a lesser weight, however it might not have as much impact on the sound quality as you may have been led to believe. Weight alone doesn't make for a good sounding record, but it sure does feel nice (some say heavier records are less likely to warp too, but this isn't a rule. We'll get into that later). While a heavy record is perceived to be of higher quality, there are many more important factors that must be considered with regards to achieving a high quality sound. Ultimately the quality of the grooves that are cut by the engineer (whether lacquer or DMM) and then the plating / stamper processing (have you seen our video for the song "yeah" featuring El Da Sensei on YouTube? That was filmed at a playing facility we use), and finally the actual pressing process (as pictured above), all have more impact on the sound quality than weight. Whether a record is 140, 150, 180 or even 200 grams, the depth of the records grooves will only be as deep as they are on the initial masters that were cut (this is limited by the actual lacquers themselves as well as the skill of the engineer, but for the most part, there is a maximum depth that can be achieved. The maintenance level of the pressing equipment and the packaging process must also be considered in addition to the weight of the vinyl. For example: a plant that reduces the pressing time of each record to shave a few seconds off the production cycle, and then rushes those same records off the press, into a jacket, and then immediately shrink wraps the packaging is doing the customer a disservice as the fresh pressings are still soft and could easily warp (regardless of weight). I hope this gives you some insight into our process and trade. If you have any follow up questions or considerations, just let us know.
redefrecords : @bugsyregal one additional consideration: the raw materials used can also make a difference in the playback / sound quality. 180 gram pressings made with recycled vinyl might sound as good as a 140 gram pressing made with "100% virgin vinyl" materials, for example. Also FYI I think many of our pressings come in at around 150g, give or take. Again I hope this info is helpful and informative since you have taken interest in the process.
bugsyregal : Thank you for the extensive & educational response, @redefrecords (I have indeed become interested in the trade myself; & unfortunately there aren't very many "quality over quantity" type of businesses/manufacturers here in San Diego with the mindset that Redefinition Records has exemplified throughout the years). In regards to your example pertaining a given plant that might cut vital seconds off of the total pressing time or rush a packaging job; I couldn't agree more. I recently purchased 2 vinyls from another record label & although the "limited edition" ($$$) clear vinyl looks neat on the turntable, it does show the imperfections that are bound to show. I'm finding it's just like any other form of art: function follows form. Genuinely, thank you for taking the time to respond
