Nobody is going to do a 3 week turnaround from scratch unless you are willing to throw down a lot of extra $.

That won't happen. You're looking at least an 8 week turn time and probably even more.

Even then I doubt it very much. You'd definitely have to forgo the test presses too and trust that they don't screw up the sound.

^^^ That's what I was going to say... at least with them being local to you, you would have a better chance.

Don't EVER use these fucking idiots. They're going out of business, thankfully.

Its worse than that. Basically goes like this:

- Approve test presses
- Receive final press, all copies damaged due to their mishandling
- They agree to re-press them
- Receive new test presses, 2/5 are damaged ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_SFsyt5yBE , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ix7pZS_m_Ps )
- Decide that I simply cannot trust them due to their fucking up the original press, and then the second test press. I start requesting a refund of some kind.

I still have not received a refund of any kind after about 3 months. Not to mention their communication has been piss poor 95% of the time.

yeah, EKS is done. i did a few projects that turned out well with them, but they were taking longer and longer towards the end. i have friends who got fucked up results from EKS, so i know it's true. i lucked out.

morpheus in baltimore are getting me 60 copies in 3 weeks for my tour and then doing the rest of the pressing at their leisure and the only extra shit i have to pay for is the rush shipping! WHEW.

thanks everybody. will check out brooklyn phono, but their turnaround is currently THREE MONTHS, as posted on their site.

Maybe Palomino is an option: http://www.dosado.com/pressinghome.htm I have records pressed by them and they sound good. They specialize in low runs and fast turnarounds. Can't comment on the sleeves, the records I have came without cover (last two releases on Terminal Dusk). Their marbled vinyl sounds a bit noisy, comparable to United. They're in Kentucky though.

I doubt that you'll be able to pull off that kind of timeline.

Brooklyn Phono is a terrible wait, one of the absolute worst I have heard.
