We're proud to be the only mastering studio in Washington to offer master lacquer cutting.
Musicians are encouraged not only to attend, but to also have a creative voice in the mastering process. Over the years we have enjoyed working with local, national and even international engineers, artists and bands.

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.
