Iím dubbing my set of the Rolph, not Jaap Schroder Bach Sonatas and
Partitas. Columbia ML 4643, 4744 and 4745 in set SL-189. Mono, c. 1951.
Iím having a problem at the end of the Chaconne. It is distorting. Iíve
two copies of this record and both do it. Itís the last ĹĒ, almost no space
between the last chord and the label. Iíve used a good 12Ē arm, a properly
aligned SME 16Ē arm, 3 cartridges, two with stereo stylyi and the other with
a 1.1 mil . The song remains the same.
I suspect Columbia overcut it. Iíve no idea id=f there was a European issue
and, if so, if it exhibited the same problem.
The set is pretty pricey. I thought there might be a comment about it on
the net but so far, nada.
Otherwise, the sound is excellent mono (Bob Fine recorded it, according to
the notes. These are very compelling, intense performances. But that
blurred sound during the complex passages at the end is a puzzlement.
Single notes during this section sound ok. Anyone with experience playing
rather than only collecting this set, this movement?
