The art of album art, I can get. (Jimi Hendrix LPs are a trip.) But the actual records themselves, not so much. It's a lot of ritual for… ritual.
Vinyls are often different masters though. By necessity they have to have certain level of dynamic range. Digital formats don't.
So there is some truth to the statement that vinyls sound better.

ABS (the company, not the plastic) M1 keyboard. Picked this up cheap. Black unbranded tactile Alps clones (wobbly/sticky), looks like it might take a complete Tai Hao keycap set. Metal plate, decent case, just needs some good switches and caps.

I've never owned a "super" macro lens. This one is completely manual (i.e. you set the aperture on the lens by hand) but much cheaper than the alternatives I looked at. Excited to inundate DT with lots of closeup keyboard pics.

That’s a telephoto, with macro legends on the side (as was the style for a long, long time). Hopefully its focal distance will keep you back a bit! Some distance, and therefore flatter perspective, should help capture the geometry you seek.

Remember to stop it down. Try f/8+ and maybe f/16 if you can bring the light.

Received my '87 SSK from the US! Pretty much pristine and untouched, at most suffering mild discolouration on the model label/birth certificate's edges.

Spoiler:
This is likely someone who wasn't familiar with SSKs and their value

Nice! I debated going for that, but decided to save some cash.

Hope it's nice!
