Is it just me, or does practically every 7 inch record come warped?

Confused Well shit, that sucks. I thought it might be because they're so thinly made. My needle not only can't read them most of the time, it stops the record cold in its tracks because it presses too hard on it. I've tried everything, but there's nothing I can do to fix the 7s save from putting them in the oven. Then again, my turntable is decades old. Maybe it needs a tune up.

Yikes, that needle sounds old and the weight sounds off. A new table and non warped vinyl sounds like what you need.

It isn't just that, it's that even the brand new 7s I buy are unplayable. I don't think it's simply a needle thing. Even my Blood Harvest 7s don't work.

get a new needle and learn to adjust the weight.
decent equipment should work fine with light warps.

Funnily enough, I got a new needle last week. I'm trying to adjust the weight now.

Not enough weight I suppose?

No, too much. This is what I get for inheriting a 1972 Technics that hasn't been played since '92. The arm was stopping some of my records on the mat as they spun. They're not damaged, but it's disconcerting to know that's what was wrong. And here I was thinking 7s were just cursed. Kids, huh? We know butt-fucking nothing.

All of my 7 inch records are good. Maybe you guys don't take care of them right? I don't know. haha

Mine are good, too. The problem is I thought they weren't. They wouldn't have stayed good if I had let my turntable arm continue with all those excess grams of weight.

Ah, I thought the needle was bumping around. Your stuff sounds like a groove killer. Better later fixed than never.

I think it was, but no longer. Maybe I should get a new turntable. The problem is I don't know if any new ones will interact with vacuum tubes. My speakers are four feet high and have plugs as wide as a red light whore.

My stuff was also an Earth heavy dirt mound before I figured out where to insert the frayed copper wire.
