7/6/14 - Prairie Cat Retirement

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm announcing that on October 1st 2014, Prairie Cat Mastering will be shutting down forever.
After 26 years, and over 14,500 records mastered, it's time to retire.

I will be doing business as usual until then. However, since most pressing plants need 4-5 weeks to do test pressings, any lacquers cut and shipped after August 25th will be at risk for re cutting.

The last day for cutting lacquers is Saturday, September 27th, 2014.

I wish to sincerely thank everyone of you that allowed me to be part of your projects over the years.

Good Health, Good Life, Good Luck

My Mastering Approach...

Since 1987 I've had the same basic approach, simply do the best I can for every client, every time. Word of mouth is my idea of advertising. When a client is very happy with the work, they will come back again and tell others of their experience. As an independent mastering facility serving small to large independent record labels, pressing plants, and distribution houses, my efforts are to offer fair pricing, quick turn-around, and good communication. Every client gets the same attention to detail and the same prices as everyone else, big or small.

If you'd like to check out some of my vinyl work, look for the scribe SSMJR (Session Masters May 1988 - August 1991), MMMJR (Metropolis Mastering Ltd. October 1991 - October 2000) or PCMJR (Prairie Cat Mastering October 2000 - present) in the lead out groove of records you already have.
