Restoration is a speciality of ours with years of experience
restoring all kinds of music from just about every type of format.
From Acetate and Vinyl records, to analogue tape, we can bring your
recordings back to their original pristine brilliance. Our expertise
and skill in this field led to a contract with Music Choice Europe
to restore thousands of albums and master tapes obtained from the
BBC Record Library [the biggest record library in the world] for use
by Sky satellite radio.
restoration is based around detailed evaluation and repair using
just the right amount of processing to ensure that the original
recorded work remains intact and free of unwanted artefacts.
Processes such as the De-Clicking of vinyl records is done by hand,
as Ted Carfrae explains:
“Many years ago when I was restoring the
BBC Record library for Music Choice Europe, the technology was just
not good enough at the time and I resorted to using my own
creativity and techniques to restore vinyl and we achieved excellent
results. Even today’s technology that is largely based around the
heavy use of algorithms or presets to eliminate unwanted noise and
clicks is still not good enough for me and therefore I still do most
of my restoration work by hand. I believe that the result is far
better and more transparent and our customers love the quality that
we can achieve but it is well worth remembering that the result is
also dependent on the condition of the original record.”
restoration process also includes final mastering so we will deliver
a brand new master quality recording. There are still thousands of
LPs and Singles that are not available on CD, so let TCM Music bring your
treasured record collection back to life. Special Deals are
