Opus 3 Records Offers Analogue Copies From Original Analogue Masters!

Master copies of Opus 3 analogue recordings! The shortest and best possible signal-path, without any conversions.

The current Opus 3 catalogue contains 50 titles which have been strictly analogue recorded and preserved. To cater to the needs of people for whom only the best is good enough and demand the ultimate in sound perfection we now offer open-reel master copies of Opus 3 albums.

All tapes are copied 'by hand', track by track, where all Mastering corrections are made with meticulous calibration and control.

We use:
A modified Technics RS-1500 for playback of the master tape, which has also been used for all of our re-mastering for SACD of our older titles. This tape recorder is world renowned as one of the best for playback. However it is specially modified to achieve the best possible quality.
Telefunken Magnetophone M-28 for the recording of your copy. This tape recorder has been used for the recording of all of Opus 3's master-recordings since 1978.

The tape:
which we used for many years was Agfa PEM-468 which is no longer manufactured, however the RMG Studio Master SM-468 produced in the Netherlands has 100% identical performance.
1/4", 2-Tracks
Speed: 38 cm/s (15")
Playback EQ: IEC (CCIR) 35uS

Over many years Opus 3 has from time to time been asked to offer Analogue Tape Copies. At the end of 2014, the first copies were sold in Sweden and the response was overwhelming.

When Opus 3 Records creates an Analogue tape copy, it is always a One to One Copy where, for example, no analogue sub-master is in between, in order to make it as good as possible with no added distortion, noise and wow and flutter, etc.

The drawback is this process takes a lot of time, because all the tracks have to be copies one by one which is the reason the Analogue Tape are high. Because of the way this is done, production is limited to a maximum of 50 pieces. The upside to this process is you are guaranteed to have the best sounding Analogue Tape Copy.

In this highly unusual recording, featuring the double bass as solo instrument, we hear music by the Italian composer Giovanni Bottesini and two Swedish composers - Erland von Koch and Lars-Erik Larsson. Soloist Thorvald Fredin is Professor of Double Bass at the Stockholm College of Music.

A breezy presentation of double bass virtuoso Bottesini's second concerto for the instrument, originally written for performance by the composer himself coupled with his Elegia, testifies the present performers' technical mastery and musical understanding of this typically 19th century composition in which no opportunity is lost, in cantelineor runs, demonstrating the soloist's proficiency.
