About this project
This is for all the music lovers out there. Experience your favorite tracks the old school way and get them cut on your very own vinyl record. You get to choose from three types of records: classic black, transparent or picture vinyl. You’ll also be able to design the labels and record covers all by yourself to make it a truly unique piece of music-loving awesomeness!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your one-of-a-kind vinyl record will be cut rather than pressed. Mass produced records are pressed copies of the so called „master plate“. This is similar to a waffle in a waffle iron. Your record however will be like that master plate, where the grooves are cut into a blanc disc by a high precision diamond cutter stylus. This stylus is moved by two independent coils representing the two stereo channels of a track. Your music is played back through a high quality digital sound interface and through two individual modified tube mono block amplifiers with 4x EL34 and 2x ECC80 tubes. If you become our backer, we’ll happily provide you in-depth videos about all of the steps involved to make your vinyl record sound amazing.

WHEN WILL I GET MY REWARD?
First come first serve! Our plans are to get things up and running by August 2016. We will make sure to ship in the order of pledges. The earlier you backed our project, the quicker you’ll get your reward. The manufacturing process of a record is quite a time consuming thing to do. It takes around an hour to cut the vinyl, print labels and covers, pack it securely into a box and have it ready for shipment. Therefore we’ll be able to do around 100-150 records per month on a single manufacturing plant. If this project goes far beyond of what we are looking for, we’ll be able to buy a second or third machine and double or triple our monthly production capacity.

Risks and challenges
We are well-prepared to undertake this project and deliver the best quality possible - as quick as possible. We have priced the pledges and our funding goal so we not only have enough to afford the whole production facility, but have a fair amount of additional fundings for unexpected expenses along the way.
The largest risks are associated to delays around dialing in the cutting machine to the best possible quality - but our team is up to the task and has qualified partners for all of these challenges.
We tried to project our shipping dates as realistic as possible, but we can’t be 100 % certain to deliver on time. We have calculated some margins for error in this planning, but it might be something unexpected along the way that ultimately pushes back the actual shipping dates.
We know transparency is key to make our backers happy and keep them informed about the whole process of this project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
