Wax cylinders to Digital

Our studio transfers into digital more than 12 different wax cylinder formats.

Within wax cylinder we can find more than 18 differences attending;

– chemical composition,

– rotation speed,

– diameter,

– Length

– Width,

Wax cylinders are considered the first recording audio format for mass distribution and also the most delicate ones.

Improper handling can result in cracks or even total break apart.

Also a sudden variation in temperature can cause cracks that eventually result in significant breaks.

We use the Arheophone as a Master Cylinder and Dictabelt Player, able to fit every single particular one getting a very high end quality.

Common affections

  • Broken parts
  • Mold
  • embedded dust
  • plaster deformation ( Blue Amberol)
  • Rust (Columbia)
  • Wax degradations
  • Others

Common Noises

  • Clicks
  • Crackle
  • hiss
  • wow and flutter

We use Cedar Audio (c) to reduce all those noises with no interference to the original audio source.
