Third Man Records was launched by Jack White in Detroit, MI in 2001, and in 2009 opened its current Nashville, TN location, which houses a record store, novelties lounge (featuring the Third Man Record Booth), label offices and distribution center, photo studio, and the world’s only live venue with direct-to-acetate recording capabilities. Third Man is an innovator in the world of vinyl records and a boundary pusher in the world of recorded music, aiming to bring tangibility and spontaneity back into the record business and issue releases that leave no doubt in the minds of listeners that music is indeed sacred.

- hear yourself as others hear you
Third Man debuted its Record Booth, a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph machine that records up to 2 minutes of audio and dispenses a one-oF-a-kind 6" phonograph disc to the user. Whether it be a song, a message to a lover, an audio postcard, or just curiosity in a process that has mystified so many folks for ages, the ability to "hear yourself as others hear you" is not only a tagline here... it's an invitation, a charge, a call to arms.
Visitors are encouraged to convert their booth recordings to MP3's and submit to Third Man to be featured on our Record Booth Soundcloud playlist.
For up-to-the-minute status on whether or not the booth is operational, please just call 615-891-4393 x300 during our store hours and we’ll be happy to update you.
Please contact email@example.com for any questions regarding the Third Man Records and Novelties Lounge, our Record Booth and other contraptions, or your purchases made from the storefront.
