A Note About Lathe Cuts and Their Pricing:
Please consider these more of a work of art in the form of a record than just another record in your collection. We know they are expensive and that art pieces like this are not of interest or in the budget of some people.
LATHE CUTS: Please understand that lathe cuts are NOT pressed records... they are made one at a time, in real time, using a DIY and experimental process. The volume and fidelity is somewhat lower than a pressed record. However, we test each one before it leaves, so they should all be totally listenable and sound pretty good considering the details of their birth. PRICING: Because of the high material cost and labor intensive nature of the discs themselves, we have to price these higher just in order to cover our costs and overhead. Not to mention the fact that we give a very generous percentage of every run to the artist for free, so the costs of those copies have to be absorbed by the sale price of our copies. Believe me, we are not getting rich. We will be lucky if we break even.
