Very timely information, Austinthank you. I will be doing some exterior restoration this summer and material is way up at the top of my list now. BE the change LP) want to see. I saw the Tru Exterior trim at the International Builders show a couple weeks ago. It looks like a great product. It comes in almost any size and does not require the clearances to grade and concrete that LP or Hardie do. It is much more dimensionally stable than PBC with temperature variations. That stuff does make a mess, but it is pretty easy to work with.
My dad and I used it when we replaced the rotted trim boards on the end of Somekind Of Fun - PVC (5) - 77-79 (Vinyl roof see picture below. We used a circular saw, hole saw, and sandpaper to put the detail on the ends just like we would have done with wood. The other picture is a house we replaced the siding and trim on the entire house. The homeowner showed us some pictures from the internet of what they wanted the front door to look like and we ordered trim accordingly.
There are a ton of profile options available for this stuff. Just like Austin I plan to use this product when I build my own home someday. Nobody stocks it out here either. More than likely MiraTEC works better out here in this climate. Thanks, Austin! This review has some awesome tips for working with TruExterior Trim. You can even put it right in contact with the ground and not have any moister wicked up.
The wicking or lack thereof is what impressed me about this product. It also does not require flashing for horizontal surfaces, which makes it ideal for porch columns and things like that. You would want to flash any where you do not have a through material behind it. I was thinking more like a trim around the base of a column that the column wrap is continuous behind. Have you guys found anybody here in Canada that carries this? The only thing I can find is from their website here….
Edit: That Canadian Stone is listed as a Boral Truexterior distributor, but coincidentally, that distributor carries a Boral named line of stone products as well. Still, if they are the distributor anyways, you may want to call those listed places up but make sure it is the Boral Truexterior prod and not the stone prod they are carrying 9r bring in tjat you are talking about.
Edit 2: Just figured something out, Boral Stone and Boral TruExterior are the same company with Boral Stone being the much larger product line being widely distributed and the TruExterior a fringe product that may have little to no distribution here in Canada thru Canadian Stone.

Trims over the head of a door or window you would definitely want to flash. Even with the sloped top, LP does not hold up well on a column in my experience.

I will no longer buy any of their vinyl products. There is no reason to think that the Jan. Will Lucy ever permit Charlie Brown to kick the football? Not in your lifetime! Acoustic Sounds' L. As for the idea that Analog Productions' pressings area necessarily better than regular Capitol vinyl, that may not always be true.
Some people on the Steve Hoffman forums who bought Analog Productions' mono vinyl reissue of "Pet Sounds" have reported off-center grooves on "Side One", and have stated that it is audible. Capitol owns the recordings, after all. The credibility of Analog Productions is at an all-time low point, and their motive for postponing the next batch of Beach Boys stereo vinyl releases until after the price increase is obvious and odious.
This "Charlie Brown" won't be kicking the football any more. And pre-order the stereos. Problems, delays, off-center spindle holes aside, these are great gifts to us BB fans.
I am grateful AS is doing this, and I for one would rather have the problems than none of these great re-releases at all. Catch a wave In this case, pre-ordering might be the way to go. I'm relieved to not be buying the endlessly postponed second batch of Beach Boys stereo vinyl L. Off center grooves?
You expect that on mediocre stereo Beatles vinyl from a pressing plant like Rainbo, but on a premium-priced product soon to become even more premium-priced!
No way. How can anyone consider records with off-center grooves to be a "Great Gift" to Beach Boys fans unless you enjoy hearing the last song or songs on a side with unsteady pitch. I've got 9 monos, and not one problem. So they can't all be bad. Just put them back in the box and return them to AS via media mail if you have a bad one or two. Not the end of the world, and no need for angst.
There's plenty of brokenness in this world to be concerned about vs. Peace and Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you. Yes, there are problems in the world much bigger than whether Analog Productions ever releases those L. In JuneI'll be 60, and next August would have marked 50 years of collecting recorded music.
In short, the music is here for me to enjoy. The idea of having the stereo remix on vinyl appealed to me as a collector, but it is not crucial. And you wouldn't believe how many editions of "Pet Sounds" that I have.
More than a dozen! Before I get started, let me emphasize, that when I mention anything that I've seen posted on Steve Hoffman's forums, that i have not been a member of the forum for more than 4 years, therefore the opinions that I mention are not my opinions. Kassem as "A Greedy Bugger". And what triggered this discontent?
I guess that Mr. Kassem is largely marketing to millionaire Hedge fund managers. The fictional character Gordon Gecko once said "Greed is Good". I'm not so sure. Do these audiophile vinyl labels operate as a cartel? Certainly it appears so, since Music Direct's "Mobile Fidelity" label has imposes January price increases identical to those imposed by Acoustic Sounds' "Analog Productions" label.
The vinyl price increases won't faze those consumers, but the rest of us the "lowly" middle class should "Just Say No", and show these companies that we are music consumers and collectors.
We are not music LP). This much is apparent. The January price increase appears to have not yet gone into effect, so today Jan. I paid by Paypal, so I've locked in the price. I saw a photo of the album cover of the stereo "Pet Sounds".
That sort of stuff just grabs the collector in me. I hope that the grooves are on-center. I received my stereo L. All were good pressings, but I've noted that, compared to previous Analog Productions L. This is what has led to incorrect reports of off-center grooves. If at first the record's grooves don't appear to be positioned on-center, Stop your turntable and utilize the loose spindle hole to reposition the record. I wish that the records hadn't been made with oversized spindle holes, but that's the way it is Wilson's slightly imprecise double tracking.
The remix on the Analog Productions L. Took awhile up here in Canada, but I finally got my copy. As you said, Michael, one need not be afraid of the stereo version. My copy is dead quiet, beautiful vinyl. The sound is easily the best for Per Sounds that I own: the mono reissue from green label Capitol and the recent Capitol Vault series release, Somekind Of Fun - PVC (5) - 77-79 (Vinyl. And not just the bottom end, either; mids and highs are so much better Incidentally, it was an eye-opener for me not to hear Brian's studio directions in the background on Here Today.
I suspect that's how it sounds on the stereo version. It confirmed for me that I've listened to Pet Sounds for 40 years only in mono! This is some kind of hybrid of a master NOT completely from the original tapes, or possibly tape at all. Search form Search. Analog Corner. News News Analog Gear News. AAA Vinyl.
