The Ultimate Tracking Performance for Vestax Turntables

Tips and Tricks

In the late ’90s, Vestax revolutionized turntablism when it released its “Anti Skipping Tone-arm System.” Ideal for scratching, the A.S.T.S. improved tracking performance and reduced record wear. The feature was improved upon in 2004 with the addition of a dynamic balance system to some of Vestax’s turntables.

On this episode of DJcityTV’s Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx takes a look at the SoSharp Active Force Control Mod. The 3D-printed device adds the dynamic balance system to the pre-2004 Vestax turntables with A.S.T.S.

Classic DJ Gear: Vestax PMC-06 Pro

Vestax PMC-06 Pro

In December, DJcityTV launched a new series called Classic DJ Gear that’s hosted by Houston’s Mister Remix. The first episode looked at one of the most popular and influential mixers of all time: the Vestax PMC-07 Pro.

For February, Remix returns to examine another Vestax mixer: the PMC-06 Pro. Released in the mid-to-late ’90s, the PMC-06 Pro was popular with turntablists due to its slim design. Its thin profile was especially appealing to beat jugglers, as it reduced the space between the turntables. It was also appealing to turntablist groups who were tight on desk space.

Remix also looks at the even thinner PMC-06 T, which he says was the most “bizarre” mixer he’s ever seen.
