Stereo phonograph records done on our
record cutting lathe. Short run lathe cuts that sound good as a pressed vinyl record.
New York Lathe Cuts - Is a lacquer record cutting service in New York City, headed by record cutting engineer Rich Flores, known for cutting The Misfits first 45 vinyl, "Cough Cool" in 1977.
Manufacturing phonograph records and reference lacquers.
Specializing in embossed phono lathe cut records made of polycarbonate.
The grooves are embossed on polycarbonate plastic. Each disc recorded in real time for limited runs of 20 copies or less.
I can cut lacquers or emboss polycarbonate reference discs on the same Scully lathe, by just changing the sapphire stylus.
The QUALITY on an embossed lathe cut record is by no means, noisy, hollow sounding than the quality on a cut record. However, the music on an embossed record is slightly lower in volume. If you want the music on the record to sound good, provide a good quality audio file.
Fast turn around times for a few copies, usually 1 to 2 days.
For quantities of 20, about 1 week - I don't do last minute cutting!
No in person pick-ups !
Our custom lathe cuts will not play on cheap turntables.
See the next video to hear what happens when an audio track is not properly DE-ESSED in the vocal track.
You can hear the problem with SIBILANT in the vocal track. That is the reason you must have the track mastered for vinyl. I will not fix this.
The disc afterwards will be trimmed round
The QUALITY on a embossed phono lathe cut record is by no means, noisy hollow sounding than the quality on a cut record. However, the music on an embossed record is slightly lower in volume.
The grooves on a lathe cut phonograph record are embossed, not cut, they are not as deep. This does not affect audio or the sound quality, a turntable with a damaged or worn out playback stylus will tend to skate, and will not track properly.
Occasionally your playback stylus will land between the grooves, resulting in a strange, distorted playback. In this case, simply lift the tone arm, and drop it again in a slightly different position, or just gently nudge the stylus.
You will hear the needle pop into the groove, and the audio will clear up. The audio on a lathe cut record can't be recorded in stereo, otherwise it will not emboss properly, lathe cuts are about 4 to 6db quieter.
If recorded at a louder volume your turntable's needle will jump out of the groove and it will skip. If recorded correctly clicks and pops and surface noise will not be noticeable with our sapphire recording stylus.
Embossed lathe cuts can't be BACK-TRACKED or DJ-SCRATCHED as in HIPHOP music, this is the characteristics of embossed lathe cut record, no matter who makes them.
