Callas Recordclamp has been created out of a never
ending quest for best sound with the cherished
LP. The Callas Recordclamp is handmade through
a specific procedure which ask for skills and
experience. Most exotic woods have been used and
listened through many prototypes. The African
Blackwood Dalbergia Melanoxylon
is the only wood which brings this magic sound
besides offering the ideal weight of 430-440 gramms.
Using the Callas Recordclamp means no return possible:
Once listened once sold.
last 20 years has seen increase scarcety on African
Blackwood resources in the EU. There are still
fair supplies of ordinary Ebony woods but mainly
too small pieces. We only work with AA instrument
quality which is now imported directly from East
Africa and this comes at a hefty price ex timber
mill, not yet mentioning shipment cost and import
fees. Producing the Callas Recordclamp and by
working with African Blackwood for 25 years we
do not compromise on quality and thus sound. At
the same time the price is still reasonable due
to direct sales. The AA instrument quality takes
two years of drying at the African timber mill,
and some time in our living room after final production.
There is a limited production capacity.
