Strong Growth in Vinyl Record Sales Drives Market for Luxury Music Memorabilia, Says Precious Sound Precious Sound says that the rapidly growing sales for vinyl records are creating a market for luxury music memorabilia, such as records made from precious metals.
With streaming becoming the most common method of listening to music, a certain subset of fans are looking for a unique experience in owning and listening to an artist’s music. According to Beerli and co-founder Mark Sutton, this is one of the reasons why they established Precious Sound, which makes playable records from precious metals, such as gold, platinum, and silver.
Sutton says the idea for this was also inspired by the fact that the gold and platinum records awarded for reaching a certain number of album sales are not playable. These are usually vinyl records that are dipped in gold or platinum. When played, the sound is heavily distorted and often doesn't even contain the original music.
Mark Sutton, co-founder of Precious Sound, says that he was inspired to create these records when he learned that the gold and platinum records celebrating an artist's success couldn’t really be played. These are often vinyl records dipped in gold or platinum. When played, the sound from these award records is heavily distorted and they often don't even contain the original music.
Switzerland-based company Precious Sound has announced that it has completed the technology to create playable records using precious metals, namely gold, platinum, and silver. These records are the ultimate keepsakes, and represent the unique connection between a musical artist and their fans, as well as immortalize the artist's achievements.
