Specialists in cutting lacquer discs on vintage Neumann lathes, Trutone provides CD and vinyl mastering services to major and independent labels including Def Jam, Island, and Roc-A-Fella. Founded in 1972 as a part-time business and operating from a 10' X 10' basement room in New Jersey, in 2003 Trutone opened new mastering studios at 321 West 44th Street, the original home of the fabled Record Plant Studios where John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, and many other major artists recorded classic albums. Renowned vinyl mastering expert Carl Rowatti will demonstrate techniques for cutting analog records and recent Trutone addition, veteran engineer Joe Lambert (Twisted Sister, KD Lang, Jefferson Airplane), will demonstrate his specialized methods and gear for creating high impact CD masters.
