ART Of Vinyl

Cutter Head

Art of Vinyl has recently been formed to meet the requirements of the Vinyl mastering community in the UK & Europe.

Over the last 40 years one man, Sean Davies has become synonymous with the Art of servicing Vinyl cutting lathes. Two years ago Sean’s thoughts was starting to turn towards winding down on some his commitments and so he approached Audio Related Technology and in particular company Director Duncan Crimmins with whom he had previous experience converting a VMS-82 DMM lathe to the VMS-80 lacquered version. One of the the tasks at hand was to restore a 1965 vintage Lyrec Stereo lathe for a client in the West End of London. Three years later and the lathe has found its way out of the garage where it had been residing and slowly rotting to be installed and restored to its former glory at Electric Mastering. Several articles have been written on the project one can be found here.

From that first project, and two significant others, involving Scully lathes at direct to discs specialist gearbox records and Apollo Records, still in progress, the seeds of AOV were sown. In order for a complete service to be provided an additional member of the team was required, so it was, that Crispin Murray of Guilde Productions (GP) came on board. We feel the combination of ART ltd’s workshop facilities and Duncan’s engineering expertise coupled with Crispin’s 1st class experience in operating and maintaining the vinyl lathes is one that will keep the European & UK Vinyl Mastering industry in good shape in the years to come.
