Please note: Lathe Cut Records are made one-at-a-time, in real time, by a real person, from plexiglass using an experimental process and 70 year old machines. It is not a pressed record and may have slightly more surface noise or an occasional light distortion in some frequencies, and will sound somewhat different than the original master. The volume will also be a little lower than a modern“post-loudness-war” record, so pump up the volume. It won’t be audiophile, but it ought to be listenable and sound pretty good considering the circumstances of its’ birth. It might also require tonearm and anti-skate adjustment in order to track correctly due to the hard plastic having slightly shallower grooves than a traditional record.
