Test Pressing Sale
Every Test Pressing $30.00 (double LPs $50)
Test Pressings are the discs sent to the pressing plant to confirm that the masters and plates sound right before they press the entire run of records. They are the "rarest" of all versions of the records. All are on black Vinyl, with blank or test pressing labels, in blank white sleeve unless otherwise marked. Most were limited to 5-10 copies.
Every once in a while I clean out the archives to raise money (and clear out space). But it's hard to set prices sometimes because of Ebay/Discogs flippers. If I mark them up a little over original price, but below discogs/popsike selling prices to remove profit incentive from flippers, people that really want them think I'm gouging. If I sell them at original price, ebay/discogs flippers do what they do and the person who comes to this page 10 minutes too late, who really wanted to own the thing ends up either not getting it or has to pay an inflated price.
That being said, this time around, I'm just selling these test pressings (many of which are expensive in secondary markets (Most have never been available at all and this is the first time anyone can get their hands on them) for the same price... $30.00.
