New Sub Pop Slipmat


Let’s face it, one of the greatest problems facing our nation—our world, even—is an unadorned turntable platter. Records are scratched due to harsh platters—or worse yet, records aren’t scratched because of too much friction from platters! Well, the Sub Pop Records R&D team has been hard at work devising a plan to assuage this worldwide problem, and our solution is an efficient one: we take a technology that already exists, put our name on it and sell it to you with a heavy-handed pitch.

We give you the Sub Pop slipmat—designed by Jeff Kleinsmith and printed on heavy felt; this is a handsome addition to any hi-fi system.

Pick one up here.
