WE ARE OPEN!!!
Custom, one-off and short run lathe cut records – no minimum order!!!
direct-to-disc recording sessions
If you’re looking for a hand-made alternative to pressed records, you’ve come to the right place!
We use two very different lathes to produce a range of different records in runs up to 50.
At the heart of our studio is a 70-odd year old Presto 28N double table. It is a beautiful, mono, all-valve, 400kg beast of mid-century engineering. It is thought to be the last of it’s kind anywhere in the world and has a very interesting history that can be read about here. We offer lathe cuts, lacquer dubs and masters cut on this machine, as well as direct-to-disc recording sessions. For hi-fi cuts, we use a modern, stereo recording lathe, equipped with a diamond cutting stylus.
Each lathe cut record is a truly unique limited-edition, cut in real time by an experienced engineer, on high-quality blanks – we no longer use PVC. It’s nasty.
Colour options are black, white, clear or transparent red, green or blue – other colours and marble effects are also possible, please get in touch to discuss.
We can also help you out with a number of artwork options, such as labels and sleeves – just ask!
All prices include basic mastering using custom-built analogue equipment.
Please check out our FAQs for more information before you order and if you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
Approximate turnaround time (as of 20/7/2020): We are aiming to complete orders within six weeks, however due to the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and global lockdown, there may be additional, unexpected delays. Please see here for the most up-to-date information.
