Vinyl with professional CD transfers


Every item for sale at cdBBQ is a vinyl LP or single that I will acquire from one of the record dealers I work with. I then create your audiophile quality CDR copy, and send both to you!

Tired of waiting for a reissue of your favorite record on CD?
Unfortunately, many recordings will never make it to CD. Through my network of record dealers, I can provide a great selection of vinyl records with custom professional CDRs. Through cdBBQ, I have been making happy music lovers for seventeen years. I guarantee your satisfaction!

As I source these records from dealers around the world, please allow 2-4 weeks for me to acquire the record, convert to CDR, and send both to you (plus transit time to you).

The guiding principle on every transfer I do is to not distort the music in any way. The fact is that most noise reduction programs are harmful to the music, often destroying the warmth we all treasure in vinyl. I have however developed effective but harmless noise reduction methods that require a little more effort but produce fantastic results.


Since 2001, I have restored many thousands of records to CDs. Much of my work has been for the artists themselves and their families. For example, Mr. Theodore Bikel described his custom CDs from cdBBQ as "lovely." I confidently guarantee the quality of my service because I process all orders personally. I have no employees and therefore can offer a consistent service from start to finish.

I offer three levels of service in transferring the record to CDR:
Professional, Silver and Gold. My standard Professional service consists of the following steps:

* When I receive your order, I will purchase your record from the
appropriate dealer. Upon receipt, your record will be professionally
cleaned.

* Your record will be converted to digital format on audiophile equipment. I use Creek Audio class A phono preamplifiers exclusively. I have several different turntable/cartridge configurations; I will determine the setup used for your record by considering the vinyl format, type of music, year pressed, label and condition. I have a dedicated setup for 7" singles, and another for 78 rpm releases. For LP transfers, I have standardized on two excellent turntables (Music Hall MMF-5 and Technics SL-1200MK2) and my two favorite cartridges (Audio Technica AT-440MLa and Denon DL-110). If you prefer that I use a particular turntable and/or cartridge for your order, please let me know. I will otherwise make my best selection based on my experience.

* A sophisticated noise/hum reduction process will be performed. This
Professional level process produces CDRs that sound fantastic!

* The music will be divided into individual tracks, and recorded onto
Japanese-made Taiyo Yuden CDRs (these are the best standard blank CDRs available). CD-Text is utilized to store song names on the CDR.

* The artist/title and track listing will be printed in high resolution
onto your CDR.


My Silver Service can be added for $15 for 7" single conversion, $20 for
12" single conversion, or $25 for LP conversion. It adds the following
features:

* Additional noise and pop/click reduction methods will be utilized. The music will be processed to remove much of the noise, primarily loud clicks and pops, and surface noise in quiet passages and between tracks. I've experimented with the majority of the noise reduction programs on the market and have developed a protocol that provides excellent noise
reduction, without damaging the music. I've processed many thousands of records and have found ideal settings, fine tuned to the kind of music being processed, to remove as much noise as possible without any harm
to the music.

* Both sides of the cover, or the labels (for singles without picture
sleeves), will be scanned with my high resolution large format scanner and printed on the CDR. Also, I will print beautiful high resolution slim jewel case inserts on glossy photo paper. I prefer slim cases for their durability and size; if you'd rather have a full-size case it's a free option, just let me know.


My Gold Service can be added for $30 for 7" single conversion, $40 for 12" single conversion, or $50 for LP conversion. It adds the following features:

* Advanced noise reduction techniques are applied. Several steps are added in the advanced noise reduction process, including manually searching the music files for any impulses (clicks/pops) and removing them carefully and individually. I also use an advanced set of logarithms that split the music files into components and applies noise reduction to each component separately, then combines them into a single music file again. This provides a significant drop in the noise floor without distorting or thinning out the sound.

* Your music will be burned onto a Mitsui MAM-A 24K gold plated 300 year
archival CDR. These are widely regarded as the finest blank CDRs on the
market.


Your CDRs will function in every way like commercially made CDs. You can play them in any CD player, and you can rip them to your iAnything. Please note that some older DVD players will not play CDR media. If you intend to play these on a DVD player, please doublecheck your player manual first. I prefer the size and durability of slim jewel cases. If you prefer a standard size jewel case please request it when you order, the cost is the same.

PayPal refunds are less non-refundable fees.
