Vinyl Record Pressing Plant: We use several fully automated Hamilton and SMT presses, and we have one manual (or “semi-automatic”) press that we have designed and call the Groovebuilt press. Each machine has been meticulously restored, or is in the process of being restored. From the addition of all-digital temperature and pressure controls; custom-engineered molds for optimal record weight and sonic characteristics; PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) temperature-controlled pressing automation; and industrial integrated cooler system; to the consultation with NASA engineers on space-age machine improvements, all R&D and investment in our plant helps to further our goal of producing the highest quality vinyl records from both a sonic and aesthetic perspective at a fair price.
Mastering: two completely restored Neumann VMS-70 lathes (resident lacquer engineer Clint Holley). At the new Well Made Music Studios, there is a one-of-a-kind floating floor upon which the lathe is set, which removes the ambient noises from cuts and any possibility of vibrations occurring in the cut itself.
Record Plating: Our equipment consists of a combination of new and old electroforming gear and ancillary tools, ranging from vintage Siebert and Europafilm equipment; custom-built electroforming tanks, spraybooth, filtration and water systems; and brand-new forming equipment made by Record Products of America.
