DECCA SDD ACE OF DIAMONDS

Vintage Re-issues using original Decca SXL stampers

HOME

While most vinyl collectors prefer to have the original, some re-issues are also of interest and can still be of high value. This is especially true where the re-issue has been pressed from the same stamper as the original, or from a stamper produced from the same valve-generated mother as the original. The Decca Ace of Diamonds early ffrr label is a prime example; these are mostly re-issues of early Decca releases which were produced with the original SXL stampers. Apart from re-designed sleeve artwork they offer the same early valve sound quality at a fraction of the price of the original SXL.
