Technics 1200 Turntable tribute & Showcase Sun 11.28.10
Calling all DJs, Turntablists, Record Collectors or anyone who has ever owned a Technics 1200 turntable.
With recent word that electronics company Panasonic has begun discontinuing the legendary SL-1200 analog turntables series.
DJs and Fans of analog music are still in disbelief.
So it's only rite that we give praise to the one Turntable that has pushed Hip Hop, House, Drum & Bass, Reggae & other Dance music to the very top of the charts & has made an undeniable mark on the world. Witness the art of scratch as we pay homage.
