Top Reasons Why You Should Make Vinyl LPs Now


Vinyl Records recently had a big comeback when digital downloads became very popular. Many bands now produce limited edition copies of their album in vinyl to add more appeal to the physical medium. Vinyl records symbolize sophistication and class and most of all, it symbolizes an era that has been one of the most remarkable times of music.

If you are a band or a musician, I advise that you produce limited edition vinyl records for the collectors and the super fans. Don’t worry much about the cost because you can now produce a hundred or even less vinyl records. This is not only a chance for you to gain more profit, but it is also a good way to promote your band.

Here are the top reasons why you should produce vinyl records for your album.

Vinyl records instantly add oomph to your band. Producing vinyl records will make your band appear more appealing because it gives a hint of sophistication and class.

It would set you apart from the artists who only sell digital medium. Vinyl= instant character. If there’s a new, rising artist that produces vinyl records, it would make me think that they have something different to offer since they’re confident enough to make vinyl.

Vinyl records can be used for promotion. Vinyl is a good tool for attracting people’s attention especially if your album has a creative artwork. Make limited editions to add value to the vinyl records. You can give some to bloggers and magazines who want to review your vinyl. Today, producing vinyl records is not so common so when you do make one, it is likely to get more attention than regular CDs.

Vinyl records have higher aesthetic value.Well, for me at least. Aside from it looking classy and artistic compared to cassette tapes and CDs, the medium also has a timeless charm. It’s also bigger thus there’s bigger space for artwork.

The good thing about the very fast advancement of technology and the popularity of downloads is that it will become so dull that people would start going back to the basics-the hard format. Come to think of it-What’s so cool about downloading albums? Will it make you an interesting person if you have a collection of mp3s? Nah, I don’t think so. Vinyl records are the way to go if you are an artist trying to make a good impression.
