Lathe Cut Camp 4! March 25-27, 2017

Lathe Cut Camp Number Four! Sat March 25-Mon March 27, 2017, Downtown Tucson, 9am-4pm daily.

New! If you want a cheap place to stay, you can now rent a room at my house for your stay!

Only 8 spots available, and every previous Camp has sold out!

Spend three days in scenic Tucson, AZ learning (almost) everything you need to know about DIY Record Cutting! The focus of this camp will be on mono "semi-professional" machines, with particular focus on Presto 6Ns, which are one of the most common and affordable vintage machines around. You can do some amazing things with these incredible machines, and I will show you how. Bring your own music and we will put it onto discs for you to take home. We will touch on professional record mastering/pressing, but my main interest and experience, and the focus of this camp will be on the more DIY and experimental side of the hobby. There are only 6 spots available, so buy early!

Perfect if you are interested in:
Vinyl records and how their masters are cut
Learning how this strange black art works
Buying a lathe to make your own records
Ordering lathe cuts from a lathe cut service
Cutting your own music to disc

Topics covered:
The science behind vinyl record cutting
Lathe Operations and equipment
The pressing process
Lacquer dub plate cutting
Experimental and alternative materials (plexiglass, laserdiscs, picnic plates, etc)

Please Note: You are responsible for your own transportation to/from Tucson and your accommodations. The studio is located at 750 north Stone, near downtown and a lot of seedy motels. I highly recommend avoiding any hotels on Oracle dr.
