Featuring a fully restored, custom Scully Mastering Lathe

There are 5 setups in the world (that we know of) for this kind of “floating” Westrex 3DII cutting head, and all were custom made for A&M Records. Wonderfully tight in the low-end, silky smooth up top and clear as bell.  Simply put: it sounds beautiful.
