I am looking to cost out a project for cleaning and digitizing a few dozen
78s. (I would rather someone else do the work, instead of personally
learning the ins and outs of cleaning a disk, selecting the proper stylus,
etc.) At this time there is NO restoration called for, but just physical
cleaning of the 78 surface before playback and digitization in .WAV format.
Could anyone supply a rough and ready per disk estimate for the
washing/playback/digitization? Since the disks could be in differerent
cities (and therefore digitized in different-sized batches) any indication
of how the price per disk might change from small batches to a couple dozen
at a time would be welcome.
As for finding folks to do the work, I am guessing that posting to the ARSC
and [log in to unmask] list are the best place to start, but would be glad
to learn of other resources.
