I have a friend who use a 'dedicated' Orbitrac to apply his Last and Gruv Glide treatment.

He also custom cuts Auto Zone microfiber fabric for applications.

Not sure how / where to ask you a question unrelated to your latest post, so I’ll ask here.

As you may know Abbey Road has been mastering several reissues at half speed ( like that’s supposed to make me care ) for a few years, I purchased one or two to taste the waters and wasn’t overly impressed. Now there doing a new boxed set of the Stones 71 - 16. I know how down you and me and others were on the last boxed set, but nonetheless less I’m hesitantly curious to know if these might have been sourced from different files or otherwise mastered any differently, beyond the half speed gimmickry. Maybe we’ll just have to wait and see, though I’m sure you don’t want to get burned twice !!
