And, we are back . . .
Following Governor Newsom’s directive, we idled our plant from March 19th until May 11th - but now we are back to serve you. Our entire staff has returned, all practicing Social Distancing and masked up (and other best practices as well), and we are eager to start your new projects. Got a new Record Store Day release? Perhaps just a regular release - give us a call, say hello, just don’t stop by (we are not taking visitors for a while). Hope you are all safe too - call or email us and let us know what’s happening with you! #SaferTogether #VinylRocks WATCH VIDEO
