Live On Lacquer preserves music in a way that is timeless and genuine. Much like the way records were made in the mid-20th century, these songs are captured live and cut in real-time onto lacquer discs with our 1940’s Scully vinyl lathe. Once cut, the lacquer masters are immediately sent off for plating and pressing. Each song is recorded in one take with no editing, allowing for the truest expression of the artist's performance to be captured. The recording method used here is 100% analog and retains a level of humanity and imperfection often lost in modern digital productions.

The following equipment was used to make this record:
Microphones - Lawson 251, Neumann KSM 104, Royer 121, Coles 4038 (pair)
Preamps - Neve 1073
Compression - Empirical Labs EL8, Manley Variable Mu, FCS P3SME, Maselec MLA-3
Equalization - Focusrite 315 MKII, Squarewave Industries Net EQ and Stereo Width Control
Lacquers - Apollo Master Audiodisc
Lathe - 1940's Scully vinyl lathe with Westrex 3D-II Stereo cutter head and 1700 cutting amplifier
Record Press - Hamilton M-225 BX
