All the tricks of the trade to play to perfection

Restoration

Now that the SL1200 Turntable is no longer available and the top tends to wear with time and or have bubbled up due to corrosion. I have come up with a service that can bring your old Turntable looking perfect, or a chance to buy a second hand deck and bring a new lease of life for less than the price of a new one.      

Starting in December I will be taking orders for original part exchange tops for the SL1200 / SL1210 mk2 turntables. It’s been a long time coming but I have now got it so I can guarantee quality and a time frame. I had to get it right before I go in to full production. “A quick overview” This is how it works you pick and order the colour you require from a pms colour swatch range or a sample colour you have supplied, I will then inform my professional spray team who  already have stock of all parts Turntable Tops, Tone Arm assemblies, Platters prepared and primed to except the requested colour. When they're ready I will call you  and swap the tops over (exchange) from your original tops to the ones you ordered, this way it’s a same day service, and you're not without your decks for long periods.

Two-pack, Twin Pack, or ‘2K’ as it’s sometimes known, . (The proper title is Two Pack Acrylic Enamel)

Each top is fitted with the new pitch ornament (black or silver) all the original Technics lettering is silk screened and baked on to each top. You also have the option of having the platter set to the same colour as the top; again your platter is exchanged. All the parts from your deck are moved to the newly painted top and “platter if requested in the order” the turntable is serviced and rebuilt ready for you to pickup. I spent a lot of time trying different types of finishes, i.e. powder coating, plating, etc though trial and error, I found 2-pac the winner it will give you the hardest, glossiest or matt, and most resilient finish out of all finishing products. I expect the best finish and workmanship so I can be proud to pass it on to you. Other options will include arm assembly colour a range of different coloured leds, scratch arms. The picture below gives you some Idea of your options
