Step One Complete - Lacquers Cut!
The first step of the vinyl manufacturing process is cutting lacquers, one disc for each side of the record. They will eventually be used to create the stampers that are used by the pressing plant to make the records we play on our turntables.
Today we cut lacquers for the Brian Harnetty single at MusiCol Recording in Columbus, Ohio. Here's a short video from the session... John Hull cut the lacquers on his 1940s Scully lathe. This video shows the "test cut", in which he does a short pass to make sure the recording is being transferred properly.
We'll be posting more video of the process in the near future. Thanks everybody for making this record a reality!
