Lacquer cutting

Equipment

Lacquer cutting for vinyl is performed on either our fully restored Scully Lathe with Westrex 3D-II cutterhead or our Neumann AM32b with SX-74 cutter head, Vinylium pitch system and Technics SP-02 Quartz-lock motor. We have the most versatile lacquer cutting studio on the West Coast.

Our Scully lathe is one of the few that allows us to start a cut from the inner diameter (near the paper label) moving to the the outer edge of a record. Cutting an endless loop of audio into the lock groove of a record is also possible with either lathe, the duration of the loop should be exactly 1.8 seconds at 33 1/3 RPM and 1.33 at 45 RPM.

Size 10" or 12". 33 RPM. Black vinyl disc. Quantity: 1. 100-120 grams? One color center label. 2-Month turnaround is fine. I just need it by December 1st. Full color custom jacket sleeve with his album photo and title on it (I will send you the picture). It will consist of 6 studio recorded songs, about 20ish minutes in length. All songs on one side to keep cost down please. I'm not sure about sleeve packaging or inner sleeves? what are the options and prices?
