What is color vinyl?

Updated 2 months ago by Support Team

Qrates offers 34 colors for colored vinyl – 14 transparent (clear) colors and 20 solid colors.

The quality of colored records, especially those made from solid colors, may have slightly inferior acoustic properties when compared to standard black records.  Possible problems include the risk of an increased amount of hiss - especially in the lead-in and lead-out grooves. As a general rule, records pressed on transparent base colors offer a slightly better sound quality than those which are pressed on solid colored records. This all depends, of course, on many different factors such as the style of music, quality of your audio master and other parameters.

*Please note: actual pressing color may differ from the image featured in our 3D vinyl simulator
