Now, the city plans to build a museum complex that will give the Texas Conjunto Music Hall of Fame and Museum the space to showcase the artifacts in recreations of Ideal's recording studio and record factory, said Rey Avila, the museum's founder.
There, the conjunto museum displays its exhibits in a 600-square-foot area, Avila said. "We've squeezed in every inch," Avila said. "Every square inch has been taken." So the museum has stored Ideal's relics for about six years. Soon, the city's new complex will give the museum about 1,500 square feet, Avila said. "Now we can bring out the whole deal," he said. Avila said the museum plans to showcase the three Finebilt record presses and the Ampex recording machine in recreations of Ideal's recording studio and record plant. "It will give visitors a better picture of the recording process and how records were recorded and pressed way back before CDs," Avila said. "I think it will be one of the better attractions." The exhibit will feature the glistening nickel-plated "stampers," or masters, that pressed their grooves onto vinyl more than 25 years ago, Avila said. "It's very important to preserve all of this," Avila said.
