To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have been burned before (twice) with serato control vinyl - in fact I’ve been using the same records for over 4 years because the last two new sets I bought were defective - holes off centre or warped on arrival. I also sent one of these sets back to Rane for a replacement, and the replacements they sent were also defective...,
This put me off buying any more control vinyl for a very long time!
However, my old records had got so worn out that they were starting to cause artifacts in the audio and drift slightly, to the point I had no choice but to replace them.
I was so wary of previous experience that I bought three new sets this time - the red, the blue, and the black colours - hoping that one set would be free if defects, and I would return any which weren’t.
To my joy and relief, all three sets are pretty much bang on! On one of the red vinyls the hole is very very slightly off centre, but it’s not enough to affect playback or tracking when scratching. The other five vinyls seem pretty much perfect after my initial spin - they track perfectly and there is no warping.
If you’ve had bad experiences like me in the past, be assured that the manufacturing problems that used to plague these records seem to have been rectified!
Generally ok but I found the A sides do not slip as well as the B sides. Not good when scratching. This could be on just the copies I have but it would seem they are not well balanced or could be slightly warped as both sides should slip equally
Great colour but had to return the vinyl as the item was damaged. Please ensure you thoroughly check the vinyl on both sides. Mine was in atrocious condition. Honestly looked like bite marks in the vinyl - as if a puppy thought it was some sort of frisby to fetch. 2nd time around it was warped had to refund.
Work really well. theybare as pictured. fully yellow, no odd discolouration which i know some dvs have. i had the pink ones but they were warped & had a white discolouration on them but these yellows dont & look the part. recommend
Wrong ones delivered ordered standard solid colour got the glass translucent style ones instead which don’t seem to track as well as the original ones I’ve had, really disappointed tho I am going to persist with them to see if it’s just because they are new but don’t seem to be as thick as the solid colour ones arrrrrrrrgggghhhhh
After a while playing only side A I flipped them and realized they are both warped. The vinyls are slightly coned and not flat. That makes one side useless for scratching and cueing as the needle keeps jumping, and also not perfect on the other side as the coned shape makes them more sticky
