Hey Kevin,

According to IASA Cataloging Rules, you would use the quantity and
specific material designation "sound disc" followed by the specific
format term in parentheses.  Two examples from IASA:

1 sound disc (metal mother)
1 sound disc (lacquer)

IASA's cataloging rules for physical description are here:

Beyond the limited format list there (Section 5.B.2.), IASA suggests
additional format terms may be applied as appropriate.

Have fun,
