About: George McFadden -Turtle has no information about George McFadden. If you have information about George or can point Turtle to information, please share it.
You will hear some record "swish." Record "swish" often appears when the record grooves and record spindle hole are not centered relative to each other. Turtle has learned that "centering (adjusting the placement of the record on the turntable) will reduce the "swish." "Centering" reduced but did not eliminate the "swish."
Jim does not favor the "operatic" sound of George McFadden, However, Turtle is IRISH;Turtle runs the recording studio; Jim works for Turtle, so....
Seriously, Jim and all should appreciate the contribution of "operatically trained" artists during the acoustic recording era. Successful recording in front of the recording horn requires a strong, disciplined voice. George McFadden shares his strong, disciplined voice.
UNLIKE most Edison Diamond Discs, 50947-R was transferred using a 3.5 mil elliptical stylus (rather than a 3.7 mil full conical stylus) in a Stanton 500 cartridge at 80 rpm. The 3.5 mil produced a cleaner sound. Turtle used Cool Edit and DC-ART 32 software to reduce noise.
