Why Buy My Cork?
PEOPLE LOVE THEM!
I have countless testimonials from customers all around the world who love my mats. They bring a smile to people's faces and set their listening space apart from others. I get messages and emails from people almost every day who want to share their record set up just to show how much it ties their room together.
"Hey Andrew! The mat is working out great, I love it! Really helps the highs sound so crisp and the lows sound so full. I’m planning on buying another one soon. I’m on the lookout for another turntable, maybe a vintage dual and I’ll need another mat from you as icing on the cake. Thanks again!"

INCREASES SONIC CLARITY
While a cork mat isn't going to make or break the sound in your Hi-Fi set up, it certainly can give that upper edge! We all are looking for a better sound. If we weren't we wouldn't be into vinyl! Cork mats can help provide more clarity to the bass and mitigate the needle catching vibrations from the motor.
"I was very skeptical about the claims that a cork mat for my turntable would improve sound quality. It sounded like some sort of snake oil pitch. I was wrong. The simple addition of a beautifully made cork mat by Andrew, not only improved the sound quality, it looks incredible on my vintage hifi system! The reduction in static, increase in bass, and mitigation of motor/belt sound traveling to the stylus is amazing. I cannot recommend this enough to my fellow music/stereo enthusiasts."

ADDS TO THE AESTHETIC OF YOUR SET UP
My mats offer a unique look to your player that sets you apart from others. We spend so much time making our audio setups look great. From the furniture we choose to the silver-face receiver with large VU meters and wood grain. Function over form is important in the audiophile world, but why not have both? I offer a variety of styles to fit into perfectly with any room
“The only drawback of the handmade slipmats by Andrew (@fullforcehifi) is that now I really like to see my turntable without any records.”

- Reduces Static (especially when compared to felt!)
- Handmade with love and care that robots can't provide
- My competitors cut their cork using CNC laser machines which can leave ugly singed edges, I cut my cork by hand using leather working tools
- Each pattern is entirely unique and no two mats will ever look the same
