The new live lathe cutter at Third Man Records venue is pretty awesome

The thing we are most excited about is our newly installed record cutting lathe and vinyl mastering suite that fans will be able to view from inside the Blue Room. The live experience will be greatly enhanced as fans can not only watch the live show but see the show being recorded, mixed and mastered LIVE to an acetate disc via the viewing window and a two camera monitor system. Making this the ONLY live to acetate venue in the world. Oh, and did we mention the lathe was once in residence at King Records in Cincinnati? That means records from anyone from James Brown, Hank Ballard, Charlie Feathers or any number of incredible artists could have been cut on this machine back in it’s heyday. Maybe even the original ‘I’m Shakin’” by Little Willie John! All the headline acts in October will be recorded using this new system. We can’t wait for everyone to see it in action. — Third Man Grand Re-Opening
