The grooves on a lathe cut phonograph record are 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 can't be recorded in stereo, otherwise it will not emboss properly, it's about 4 to 6db quieter, 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. If recorded correctly clicks and pops and surface noise will not be noticeable with our sapphire recording stylus.

Unlike dub plate 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 improve high frequency response.
