Is this a thread for laments? There is only one piece of vinyl I can think of that I love, and that has never been on CD.



I rashly donated it, thinking I had a digital transfer of it on my hard disc. Now I can't find the digital transfer! Gone forever.  :'(
I believe that I found the same recording, but different cover here:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/BACH-Concerto-Movements-from-Cantatas-HARNONCOURT-Telefunken-6-41970-LP-NM/121225190858?hash=item1c39959dca:g:blgAAOxyzi9SmIAy

I'm praying that football grounds are closed this weekend. My son is working and I have promised my grandson I will take him. I don't want to go!
My brother, now in his 70s, went to Chelsea v Liverpool about a week ago!

I just read that the ATP (men's tennis for those who don't know) has shut things down 'til April 27th.  I expect that the WTA will announce something similar.   :(  I'm sure that it's for the best.  Will be hardest, I think, for the lower ranked players in terms of income.  How they decide rankings and points, let alone whether or not they'll be able to reschedule the events, will be interesting to see!

Wimbledon is looking vulnerable this year, P.

I have learnt a painful lesson never clean a cartridge with anything liquid, water or alcohol based.

The good people at Expert Stylus recommended this. Cheap and lasts a lifetime.

:o :(  I hope that doesn't come to pass.  I did find this article after reading your comment though.  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sportsnews/article-8102009/The-England-Club-cancel-Wimbledon-stage-iconic-event-without-spectators.html

I wonder whether or not that stuff that you use is the same thing that a certain MW from days gone by also used(es)?  I seem to recall him mentioning something along those lines?  How do you use it Irons?  I have some stuff that I've never used but was recommended by my audio guy.  It's by a company called Last...https://thelastfactory.com/product/last-stylus-cleaner/  So far, anyway, I've just used that little black brush that came with my cartridge.

A friend of mine, who has 14,000+ LPs has recommended it to me. I reckon that if it is good enough for him........... ;D

I suspect that he listens to a number of different types of music?

You have no idea!!  ;D

One track from some obscure album was a recording of some guy smashing up plate glass.

He listens to regular stuff also  ;)

Seems safe which is the main thing. I had the stylus fall of the cantilever of my mono cartridge through using a alcohol based liquid.

I think it was me who put MW on to it, P.
The Bergeon is used as a blob about the size of a pea. After every side with amplifier on gently move the blob to the stylus until hearing a click through speakers and that’s it done. I have the blob stuck to the handle of one of those small stylus brushes.

Oh, neat!  No concerns re speakers though?  My thinking:  turn the volume off and run it through the 'stuff'.  And how do you keep it stuck to the handle and also not have the stylus hit the plastic of the handle?  A bit confused here....And do you use a brush to dust off any remnants from the 'stuff'?

Is the Last product that I mentioned in line with products that you've had problems with in the past?  Not certain what the  base component is of it. 

Best,

No, speakers and system must be on at normal level. Without that you may go in too hard and damage the stylus. Easier to do then explain. There is no residue, that is the beauty of the stuff and it collects dust like a magnet. Watch repairers use it for cleaning the workings of watches. Has a consistency of blutack so stays where you place it.

Last has been around for years but not used it. Is it a liquid? If so I would not let it near any cartridge I own.

Yes, it's a liquid which comes with its own brush.  I provided a link to it a few postings ago.  Thank you for the photo and info!

Found this over in Vinyl Asylum. The well known makers of turntables, Project have started to produce  LP records, a most surprising development. Difficult to navigate, and as for price and availability little information forthcoming, but this does look tempting.   https://www.project-audio.com/en/product/wiener-philharmoniker-herbert-von-karajan-richard-strauss/

Neat!  One question that does come to mind:  what kind of condition are the original tapes in these days?

Very interesting as a life long advocate of the relationship between von Karajan and the music of Strauss.
