Dubplates are perfect as a personal gift, for DJs or collectors. Our dubplates are as durable as vinyl records because the blanks are made of vinyl and not acetate! An inexpensive and high-quality production of individual records!
Each of these records are unique and are cut into a PVC blank in real time, the same material used to press “normal” vinyl records.
Unlike traditional dubplates, which are cut into acetate discs and have a durability of about 80 playbacks, our custom made vinyl record cuts last as long as pressed records. Furthermore they can be cut up to + 8dB! Their sound quality is identical to pressed vinyl and are ideal for scratching. Our dubplates are cut on a vinyl recorder.
Since the sound of the vinyl recorder differs from the Neumann mastercut machines, our vinyl custom made products are unfortunately not suitable as a test cut for a pressing. If a reference cut is to be made on an acetate blank, please contact us.
Due to the technical specifics of the machine, the lengthen listed below should not be significantly exceeded (+ 15). The lengthen are less than for pressed records, please bear this in mind when ordering.

45 rpm 33 rpm
12″ 8 minutes 12 minutes
