Randy Kling’s Disc Mastering, affectionately named “Randy’s Roost” by the late Chet Atkins, has moved into new facilities at 455 Chestnut St. in Nashville.
For more than 40 years, Disc Mastering was located in the former RCA building, which burned in a fire in 2004. “We lost a lot, but we came out of it with our lives, our clients and some of our equipment,” Kling says.
That equipment, as well as some new piece, now resides in an area between Music Row and charming Berry Hill. “We definitely have more room here,” Kling reports. “We just need people to know where we are.”
Apparently, many have been able to find them because he has been extremely busy with his specialty of cutting lacquer records for artists like
Clients such as Britney Spears, Ryan Adams, Carrie Underwood, Youngbloodz and 311 have found him so far, taking advantage of his lacquer-cutting skills. “We are one of the few mastering companies in this market that still provides the service of mastering lacquer for vinyl pressing,” says Kling. “Of course we are still mastering for CD using the newly redesigned Neumann Analog Console as well as professional record cleaning, archival and restoration of 33 1/3, 45 and 78 rpm records and dehydrating, repairing and cleaning of analog masters.”
