Trutone Mastering Labs

Profile:
US mastering and recording studio founded in 1972 by chief engineer Carl Rowatti.

Also credited as:
- Trutone
- Trutone Mastering NY
- Trutone Mastering
- Trutone Records, NJ


Records mastered at Trutone Mastering, if not printed on the center label or record's sleeve, can be identified in runouts as:
● 'Mastered At Trutone' etched alongside the engineer's initials
● “T” (within 4 circles) + engineer's initials + a date (i.e., 5/75)
● "TR" (circled) + engineer's initials + date (i.e., 11/74)

Founded as a part-time business in 1972 by Adrianna and Carl Rowatti in North Bergen, New Jersey, in 1975 Trutone moved to Northvale, New Jersey and became a full time operation. In 1976 Trutone moved to its first commercial facility in Haworth, New Jersey. In 1990 Trutone relocated to a 15,000 sq foot facility in Hackensack, New Jersey. In late 2003, Trutone relocated to the former home of Record Plant, N.Y.C. They remained at this location until 2008, before moving to their current location in Nanuet, New York.

Mastering engineers that have worked at Trutone Mastering Labs include Phil Austin, Carl Rowatti, Joe Yannece, Joe Lambert, Patti Firrincili (in an unofficial capacity), Tony "Tippy" Tarochione, Steve Robb (2) and for a brief spell, Ray Janos.
