Limited (coloured) pressings are sold to record shops on a first come, first serve basis. The best advice we can give you is: become a regular visitor of a record store near you that sells Music On Vinyl and encourage them to keep you in mind when pre-ordering limited vinyl. And keep checking our Upcoming section on a regular basis, and sign up for our weekly newsletter.

We use the best audio available to cut our records. We receive and use different kinds of masters: analogue tapes, original metal parts, lacquers cut from analogue tapes and high res digital files 192/96khz/24 bit. Music On Vinyl does not use CD's as masters.

How are Music On Vinyl records made?
We've drawn up a nifty article that covers all bases of our record production, includingcutting the masters, galvanic processing, pressing the records, printing and folding the sleeves, packaging and quality control. Read the article here.
What is the reason the colour of my vinyl record looks different compared to the one on the website?
The image on our website is a mock-up and the colour is picked from the website of the pressing plant.
Standard colours: Light coloured vinyl can show spots or clouds, even if the press is cleaned prior to pressing.
Mixed colours: In the beginning of the run the record might turn out different than in the end of the run. There's not much we can do about it, the factory can't guarantee the outcome of the colours when we order a mixed colour. This can differ per mix, but also per batch of coloured vinyl.
