Audio Restoration Service

 

.HMV model 101 gramophone

I offer a bespoke sound restoration service to meet your needs.
I have delivered a number of successful results from audio cassette, acetate discs, 78rpms, even from recordings made onto disc from machines in department stores.
Voices of departed family members have been brought back to life for delighted relations.
Since 2009, in partnership with Memory Lane Magazine, I have produced on average eight CD masters (almost 200 78 sides) per year See here.

Artwork can also be designed and/or sleeve notes.

Happy to take new projects and to provide on prices on request.
No job too small.

Contact me for more information.

Feedback
  • Brilliant. I played and enjoyed the Steve Conway master. You have managed to capture his voice clearly and the piano accompaniments are a nice warm sound.  Congratulations.
  • I received the Sam Browne CD. Another excellent job.
  • An excellent CD and I am sure it will be another winner.
  • I really don't know how you have got the result you did with some of those obscure poor pressings. Marvellous.  
  • I've just received my copy of the Len Fillis CD. This CD is superb. It'll be going into work with me tomorrow. It means I can to listen to soothing music.
