This survey was made to determine interest in what I am calling the Bronies on Vinyl project. I am looking into vinyl record pressing services that could be enlisted to produce physical records of brony songs by musicians in the community. I wanted to do this because I personally thought it would be cool to create and distribute physical brony media. To be cost effective, the records would need to be mass produced in quantities in at least the hundreds. However, I won't do this unless there is a real market for it, because of the money involved. I am not affiliated with any official record labels, so a large percentage of the money can go straight to the artist(s) involved, so it would be a great way to support them and get a physical piece of brony history, as well as a high quality version of the album or song list (depending on who ends up being involved). I don't know how many people out there have turntables, and of those, how many would be willing to pay money for a vinyl record of brony songs (I don't have any way to play a record myself, but if I get them into production I plan to invest in one so that I may enjoy the records). It is also important to note that the process will take a lot of time if I go through with it. I will need to get in contact with the company and the artists, and the manufacturing process alone takes several weeks, and I may not be able to begin production until next summer, but I can't do anything until I gauge the community's interest. If the first run goes well, I will try to get more musicians involved, as well as continue production of the record that will serve as a test for the market. Each disc will likely be 15 to 17 dollars, depending on the size of the disc, production costs, and many factors that will be determined with the artist.
One more thing; I can't start production until i'm sure there is enough interest! If only 30 people take the survey, I can't be sure we can sell 500 records! It would help a ton if you could spread the link for this survey around to as many people as possible! The more people that respond, the better the idea of the market will be! Thank you!
