Ultimate Test Pressing Bundle

  • Limited edition test pressing
  • Original album with full artwork and packaging

In a 2013 Q&A with JazzTimes, Julian Lage described the Cline-Lage duo sound as “200 percent power,” and that’s exactly what comes through on ROOM: an inspired collection of originals and collaborative pieces that runs the full range from intricately composed and complex to free and spontaneous. Nels Cline builds on the strength of his previous duo work with the likes of Elliott Sharp, Thurston Moore, Carla Bozulich, Marc Ribot and not least of all the late West Coast bassist Eric Von Essen. Lage, for his part, has worked in duo settings with David Grisman, Martin Taylor, John Abercrombie, Taylor Eigsti and others.

ABOUT TEST PRESSINGS
Before the large-scale production of a vinyl record, a scarce number of copies are pressed to test the quality and fine-tune any audio that may need to be adjusted. Once this process is approved, Mack Avenue makes an extremely limited quantity of these test pressings available to the general public. Packaged in a simple white jacket featuring a signature from the artist (when available), these collectible test pressings are available in extremely limited quantities. Bring home a rare version of your favorite album today!

Tips for listening to your test pressing:

Step 1: Clean the record.
Step 2: Play the record all the way through with the volume at zero. 
Step 3: Clean your cartridge stylus.
Step 4: Turn up the volume and ENJOY!
