My clear with blue springe doesn't play Boomboxes properly and it's pissed me off.
Has anyone had the same problem, if they have post here, and please tell the band and/or Gunner Records.

I hadn't listened to my blue springle until people started to post about problems. Stuck it on this morning (on two different turntables); both "Boomboxes" & "Contenders" skip pretty badly Sad

All my other Gunner releases play fine, must be a problem with the 4th pressing plates.

just got a reply from gunner...


"yes i heard about it and checked the copies i have at home...they are
actually playing fine....and they are not skipping...but i heard of the
problem before...somehow you definitly have to play the record a few
times to get the static charge away from the record, definitly use a
brush too...

i don't know why they are electric charged so bad...but once you have taken care of that it should be fine...

the 4th press is made with the same form than the other pressings...

let me know if that works for you..

thank you1
cheers
gunnar"


i haven't tried it out yet so i dunno...

I think it is a real problem since it is skipping in the same place for you guys...

Gunner's Reply:


"i just found a copy that had actual holes in it...so i guess there are definitly copies that are bad...

can you please look at your copy and tell me if you can see anything?

if so let me know...

i'm
definitly willing to change the copies but only if they really don't
work...since i had the problem before that it's sometimes only the
record player and the needle and arm for example are not heavy enough
...or things like that...

i just forwarded the copy with the holes in it that i found to the pressing plant...

i wait for answer...

please let me know about your copy...

sorry for all the trouble..
thank you!
cheers
gunnar"


I have yet to look at my copy..anyone else have holes intheir copy?!

my reply to Gunner:


"So I took a closer look at my copy and noticed that theres a huge
scratch/gouge across Boomboxes and Contender. There's no way my needle
could've caused that, as it goes perfectly against the grain. I also
noticed that theres "holes" or "bubbles" like you said. It's most
noticeable in the blue areas. Maybe pellet damage when doing the
splatter?

Here are some links to some pictures I took.."

Gunnars reply:

"thanks for sending me those pictures ..it actually helps a lot to get
something done in this case...i just forwarded you photos to the
pressing plant as well ...

i checked out around 50 records yesterday and most of them work ..but there are copies that skip...

i'm on it...

do you want that specific press ..i defnitly will send you a new copy...

just let me know...

i might need you to send me the broken one though..just to use it as a proof for the pressing plant...

let me know...
thank you!
cheers
gunnar"



in any case he seems convinced that most of the pressing is bad now...so i'd email him for an exchange. i don't think it'd be a problem. still sucks though..

gunners getting a new press of the clear w blue springe. Don't know how many new ones he's getting...the whole press or just to replace existing bad ones.

but he said to hold off on exchanges until he gets everything figured out with the pressing plant.

just an fyi
