Vinyl Lacquer Record Cutting

Lacquer mastering is the final stage of the mastering process and the first stage of the vinyl manufacturing process. We offer the highest quality Lacquer cuts using our Neumann VMS70 with SX74 cutter head.

We take Lacquer mastering very seriously.Lacquer Channel Mastering is the only studio in Canada offering this service. Kevin Park is our master cutting engineer. Should you have any questions you can email him at

We take the time to ensure that you are getting the best possible cut. Fidelity matters. Sound quality is everything. We can do your vinyl pre-mastering (eq, compression, editing etc.) but even if you don’t do your mastering with us, we can prep your master for vinyl and it’ll sound better when cut.
