For many years now
I've been directly involved with analog tape restoration. I've restored
single reels for small record labels and I've also restored whole archives
with literally hundreds of reels in all formats for recording artists
like The Kinks.
Now, let me restore your precious analog master tapes!
Are you worried about your analog tapes? Please take a moment to read
my journal from working on the Kinks archive.
Read for yourself about the level of care and attention to details that
I'll take with analog restorations and archiving.
In a nutshell, I have the knowledge, experience, pride, and proper equipment
to do a great job recovering your deteriorating analog recordings. Check
out my credentials. You can also read my EARDRUM story I had
written all the way back in 1988 entitled
"The Causes and Cures of Tape Shedding". It's one
of the most viewed pages on the web dealing with the issues of analog
The laboratory incubator I'll use on your analog master tapes performs
beyond the specs needed for uniform temperatures throughout the heating
chamber. It also is more stable, within a half of a degree, unlike the
usual five degree swing in household ovens. And as the incubator is
electrically heated, your tapes won't pick up excess moisture like they'll
do in gas fired ovens.
And for fabulous sounding transfers, my Studer,
MCI, and TEAC playback machines are always in peak operating condition
and meticulously calibrated for exacting analog transfers.
Additionally, I'm keen on current
high resolution digital technologies that your precious analog reels
deserve. I'll find a suitable long term storage medium for your project.
I can even assist you with guidelines for storage of your own analog
master tape libraries.

has restored several recordings for Paul Mallory's family. Paul was
a hipster jazz cat during the early 1950's who played in Havana, Cuba
and in Miami Beach, Florida with his cool trio. He had a great big dapper
baratone voice and swingin' piano stylings. Later Paul provided piano
music for the dance community too. It was a pleasure to bring these
tracks back into the light of day
after many years of storage.
