Lathe cuts are embossed with our hot recording sapphire stylus, using a record cutting lathe. Our styli improves audio and are the best sounding lathe cuts anywhere.
The grooves on a lathe cut phonograph record is embossed, not cut, they are not as deep. This does not affect audio or the sound quality, a turntable with a damaged or worn out playback stylus will tend to skate, and will not track properly.
Occasionally your stylus will land between the grooves, resulting in a strange, distorted playback. In this case, simply lift the tone arm, and drop it again in a slightly different position, or just gently nudge the stylus. You will hear the needle pop into the groove, and the audio will clear up.
The audio on a lathe cut record is recorded in mono, stereo will not emboss properly, it is about 4 to 6db quieter, and you will have to turn up the volume a bit. If recorded at a louder volume your turntable's needle will jump out of the groove and it will skip. There is a bit more noise than a normal LP, pops and crackles may be noticeable, even when your record is brand new.
Unlike dubplate lacquers, embossed lathe cuts can't be BACK-TRACKED or DJ-SCRATCHED as in HIPHOP music, this is the characteristics of embossed records, no matter who makes them. Our lathe cut records will not wear out any faster then a pressed lathe cut vinyl record. We are currently the only producers of the embossing sapphire recording stylus. Our styli improves HIGH FREQUENCY response.
