Decca's equipment

by James Kidd

I doubt that Decca had 'cheap, substandard equipment'. They were one of the big three, focussed their operation on Bing Crosby, sold millions of records at 35 cents and only seemed to compromise on the quality of their pressings. Their studio at 59 West 57th and later at Pythian Temple was small but adequate for those low-fi days. Let's not assume that Jack Kapp didn't have the best hardware needed to compete with Victor and Columbia!
