Hello Forum, we are an Italian company and we enter in high-end music opening our new e-commerce site :

www.openreelrecords.com

We produce, record on-stage, edit and finally duplicate for the distribution very high quality analog tapes in ¼ format and vinyl LP, classical and jazz music.

We start the production in the late 2014, so we are proud to show our new proposals of new titles in the Master Series, products with internationally renowned artists.

In the next month coming interesting titles retrieved from Historical Archives and the RT3, a new real time hardware to ensure the fidelity of duplications of distribution master, currently under development.

The Team

That`s correct Leif. Great plastic cover, booklet in high quality paper incl. all info you will need. And I will also say that they provide very good service! You have a reply just after you pushed the sent btn. It`s not possible for me to listen to it right now but looking forward to it. If it sounds like it look it will be good.

Hello Forum, just some updates for all welcome visitors to our site; we have implemented some feature suggested from our customer and have had a little graphical restyling.

We have also reprinted a new batch of our best selling tape, the Vivaldi's Concertos from Enrico Dindo "... a cellist of exceptional qualities , a complete artist and a formed musician, with an extraordinary sound which flows as a splendid Italian voice ..." as said from Mstislav Leopoldovich Rostropovich :

Enrico_dindo_solisti_pavia_vivaldi_concertos

As promised in the last weeks of March we started selling the beautiful tape "Reinventing Thelonius" from Arrigo Cappelletti, a very famous and interesting jazz pianist and composer.

Let's stay connected in April for the new issue of Classic, an interesting rediscovered work of Vivaldi, and a very special tape which will be discussed in separate thread !

For those of you already familiar with our tapes or wanted to try an interesting offer " Talk about us " that you find on our home.

I ordered two tapes, the Dindo Vivaldi Cello Concerti and the Kunz Beethoven Waldstein on Sunday the 5th, and my tapes also arrived today. Super packaging and very unique tape container - a bit of a rubik's cube to open - need to follow the directions on the outside flyer. I'll be cranking up my tape machine tomorrow morning to play the two tapes. Interesting comparison, since I have the Waldstein on one of Ed Pong's tapes.

ENRICO DINDO just kicked my ass. Superb performance and recording. How can you go wrong with Schoeps->Millennia->Nagra T ?
A lot of customer ask about analog recording and duplication chain; we are preparing a page on the website, in the meanwhile just some details ... we duplicate in a production studio in Milano, Italy.

We use a Studer A-812 as source master, that distribute via a Studer 169 mixer to a bank of Studer A-807 as recorder. We have tested a lot of configuration and the one selected is for us the best to ensure the optimal analogic chain result.

The Studer 169 mixer in the production room is the twin of the one we use on stage to record the sessions; on stage we use microphone Shoeps MTSC 6 MK4, Schoeps BLM 3, Shoeps CMC6 MK 21, Shoeps CMC6 MK 2s and others.

We use two unit micro preamplifier MILLENNIA Media HV*3D that via Studer 169 and a Telcom C4 unit go to a Nagra T.

We use RMG SM 900 tapes with reference flux of 320 nWb, with CCIR equalization.

while having a wide selection of microphones , about thirty , we use minimal recordings setup in amazing acoustic environments. The signal in this way will not be changed by artificial compressor, limiter or reverb unit.

Very nice :p

I'm an amateur recordist interested in direct-to-2 track, minimally-mic'd recordings. My recording chain is Schoeps (various capsules/polar patterns) --> Gordon mic amp -> Studer A820-2CH or Korg MR-2000s (DSD128). Tape stock is SM900, +6/185 nWb/m, with CCIR EQ. Just received my first batch of Pyral tape...Pyral sticker on box and RMGI sticker on flange. Studer 169 -- excellent choice. I deliberately choose no NR...don't know much, if anything, about Telcom -- perhaps, a European presence moreso than North America?

Congratulations! :)
