That has lead to a backlog at most vinyl pressing plants, since there aren't very many of them left.
This can change soon as a result of a great find in a warehouse in Chicago, where 13 abandoned presses were recently found.
According to Analog Planet, the presses were last used in the 90s to produce bootleg 78s for export to India.
The haul consists of ten Hamilton presses, two SMTs and one Lened.
They look pretty rusty and dusty, the presses will go online shortly at Quality Record Pressing in Salina, Kansas. The company is already doing triple shifts and is still backed up 3 to 4 months, so these presses should help you get your record into the hands of your fans faster.
