I'm pretty sure Lacquers have a shelf life but not sure how long so you might want to check on that.

Transco is now owned by Apollo but they make both Transco and Apollo formulas.

Give them a call, they are very helpful.

We used yellows for listening copies at Motown. The difference was they could have imperfections around the outside edge that could screw up plating. As far as I could ever tell they sounded the same.

Unfortunately blanks can both go bad after a few months and new ones need to cure a few weeks to be at their best. It could be an expensive proposition for anybody not using at least a box a week.

Sorry for my delay Mr. Olhsson, and thanks for the free class..

I thin that dubs are equal (i never listen a master) depth settings, stylus heating, the same for me

Regular consumption is necessary to spin finer

Thanks to all

Cheers
