To cork or not to cork.

They certainly reduce dust accumulation and static but whether or not cork slipmats improve sound is up for debate – it probably depends on your turntable design.

In any case, felt mats usually get all the customisation so it’s nice to see cork getting a bit of love with the launch of this range of handmade laser etched cork slipmats.

Available from Etsy via new shop The Cork Branch Shop, the mats are made-to-order and on sale for £13.55 each (plus shipping).

Writing on Reddit, the man behind the cork says: “I opened this shop because I really was looking for a way to improve my setup while being able to express my love for fabrication/design. I really enjoy playing around with laser cutters/3D printers.”

Contact the shop directly if you’re interested in a customised slipmat and check out some designs below:
