Beautiful set of six single sided test pressings of the ultimate performance/recording of Bizet's immortal Carmen. Pretre and Callas at their peak.
The records are immaculate, top NM, every disc bearing 1 G stamper numbers, the sound is fantastic. If you want full matrices for every disc please ask. The first release cloth bound box with laminated paste-on front panel is NM.There are a couple of the original EMI archive inners included. Why pay more for a big fat red box with later pressings? TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE WEAK POUND. STERLING AT 28 MONTH LOW. And make the most of the enlargement facility! The purge of the collection continues..... A varied batch this week.
Regular clients will know that I keep my descriptions brief and to the point. If you are looking, I figure you will know what you are looking at. I would not presume to condescend nor would I wish to bore you to death with unnecessary hype.
Used records play-checked on SME 15, SME V with VDH cart and cleaned when necessary on a Loricraft Pro II. MINT (M): Brand new and unplayed. Perfect, no indications of being handled or played.
I only use this grading if I know for sure the record has not been played. NEAR MINT (NM): The record is virtually flawless, clean and shiny.
Very minor, barely visible innerbag wear may be permitted, but no scratches. The disc should play with no audible noise. Jacket is as close to perfect.
EXCELLENT (EX): Record plays near perfectly, but may have minor paper scuffs that do not interfere with the sound quality. There can possibly be a non-sounding mark or two but nothing that affects play. Record is clean and shiny. Any issues with the jacket will be minor and described. Because I have never collected records that are a lower grade than EX, you won?
T be finding any for sale here. I ensure that my records arrive with you in the same lovely condition they leave me, carefully packed in secure professional wraps with sheet polystyrene and cardboard packing. I do not use bits of old cardboard box or those cheap flimsy envelope style mailers. Records are always packed out of their jackets.The item "HMV ANGEL SET OF SINGLE SIDED TEST PRESSINGS FOR THE CALLAS CARMEN BOXED TOP NM" is in sale since Monday, September 9, 2019.
