Vinyl Carver?

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

Found a ebay auction with a single that was interresting to me.

There is no picture and in the discription he says "its a vinyl carver"

What the hell is a vinyl carver?

I don't find "carver" in my german-english dictionary.

Hope anyone can help.

Thanks a lot

Vinyl Carvers is a company that will cut an MP3 or other type of recording to a vinyl disc, bit like a modern day emidisc.

In other words it is not a legitimate release, it's a bootleg.

Thank you all! :thumbsup:

The whole auction looked fishy.

Never knew that is legal to sell this on Ebay because of copyright and things like this.

Can't see the problem if the seller is advertising it as such,so long as any buyer knows what he or she is buying,I don't have any myself but someone who wants a track and can't afford the original would probably be pleased to have it.Oh and don't quote me the "your taking royalties away from the artist" because once that original record has been initially bought the money from any future sales goes straight in to the sellers sky rocket.hatsoff2.gif

About 4 months ago I sold all of my UK label ska, rocksteady and reggae collection, I would say at least 20% are irreplaceable as they just do not come up for sale, and when they do, I'd never be able to afford them. Thank God for vinyl carvers, my reggae box is stuffed full of copies of the records that I sold now, I make my own labels, I choose my own A and B sides, and I have some great tracks available to play on vinyl, here, in my record room. If you just want the music to play on vinyl like I do, there's nothing wrong with it at all.
