The first thing after the Laquer is the metal Father.

Then comes the metal Mother.

And then we get the metal stampers or more aptly put the metal Sons.

1 sound disc (lacquer)
1 sound disc (metal Father)
1 sound disc (metal Mother)
1 sound disc (metal Son or stamper)

The Laquer and the Mother can be audioned by an ordinary playback stylus.

The Father and the Sons, ( pressing stampers ) are inverted and can only be
played by a special stylus that looks like an inverted V.
