LATHE CUT RECORDS - New York Lathe Cuts

Phono Lathe Cuts That Sound Good As Pressed Vinyl

The QUALITY on an 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 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.

  

Unlike dub plate lacquers, 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.


Our lathe cut records will  not wear out any faster then a pressed lathe cut vinyl record. I'm currently the only producer of the embossing sapphire recording stylus for better high frequency response.

De-essing  (also desibilizing) is any technique intended to reduce or eliminate excessive highs in the recording or the prominence of sibilant consonants, such as the sounds normally found in the vocal track by "s"  and "sh", in recordings of the human voice.


  • Sibilance lies in frequencies anywhere between 2–10 kHz, depending on the individual's  dental work. This causes havoc in record cutting


  • I WILL NOT FIX THIS THIS,  IT'S THE STUDIO'S RESPONSIBILITY.  All AUDIO IS TRANSFERRED AS "FLAT CUT".


  • SIBILANCE  WILL CAUSE THE RECORD TO SKIP AND AND WILL MAKE A RUSHING SOUND DURING PLAYBACK.


  • THERE IS A CHARGE FOR THE FIRST FAILED RECORD AND YOU  WILL BE REFUNDED THE REST OF YOUR UP FRONT PAYMENT.

 

  • NO GUARANTEE EMBOSSED RECORDS WILL WORK ON VINTAGE JUKEBOXES AND CHEAP TURNTABLES


  • I DON'T MASTERING FOR INDIVIDUAL AUDIO TRACKS
