3.45 RPM

UK-based high quality RECORD lathe cutting service

Waiting Times Update (as of 16/01/17) :

Orders are now being taken for 30th January 2017 onwards. Please get in touch if you wish to book time ...


3.45RPM is a quality record lathe cutting service, specialising in editions of 1 to 100 x 7", or 1 to 50 LP's, with each and every disc individually and expertly hand cut. It's functional art, highbrow entertainment, and impressive looking on your musical CV all in one go. Once you have it, it's yours for life.

So send in your sounds, and see them magically transferred to the living format of vinyl. 3.45RPM usually cuts direct from CD's or WAV files though is also able to work from other digital file types (such as Mp3), DAT or even cassette tape.

As each disc is hand cut in real time it's a time consuming business, and because of this we do not offer runs of more than 100 copies of 7"s, or 50 copies of LP's (20+ mins recording time on a 12"). 3.45RPM will endeavour to process and complete each order as fast as possible, though please do check first what the expected waiting time will be. Be aware that an order of 50 LP's may take a month from the first available manufacturing date to complete, where as an order of, say, 5 x 7" singles could well be done and dusted in 24hrs. Again though, this depends on available spare dates.

3.45RPM aims in the near future to be able to offer a wider and more diverse the range of size and shapes - if you are after a certain format not shown on this site, please do let me know your wishlist and I'll see what's possible.

Here's a jolly little Youtube clip of what it's all about, though please check out the other pages on this site for further information :
