Short runs is a term for very very limited numbers of a Vinyl release. Usually there are only consist of 10 – 25 individual hand cut master records. Under rare circumstances a higher number up to 100 is cut as all hand cut records are cut in real time. The greatest advantage of hand cut records is the sound quality also the record is much shinier and sharper as it is cut with a super sharp diamond. Hand cut records are vey hot recorded and always superior to pressed records. During the pressing process the stampers under a force up to 120t and transcription loss is very common. On hand cut records the energy and dynamic range is also superior to the pressed records. Short runs are very sought after master records and therefor cost more but a true audiophile knows the difference to sound quality and investing into a product that increases in value over time seems a good thing to do. Every hand cut record is a unique cut, a father plate, a master record. It’s one of the true arts in Vinyl production.
