The Scratchophone is an electronic DJ device that is part turntable, part mixer, and part drum-shaped enclosure that gives Turntablists a TRUE instrument to call their own. The Scratchophone is made for serious scratch professionals and is fully portable and intuitive just like any other instrument. Nearly everything from the color to the crossfader angle position is customizable at the time of order. All mixer and turntable functions are all there and packed into this nicely presented package that finally looks to make Turntablism a valid art form and to provide a respectable instrument that can finally label a scratch DJ as a true performing musician. DJ Qbert dropped by their place to put it through its paces and he was thoroughly impressed...as am I!
