DJ Qbert Rips it up on the New Scratchophone Turntablist Instrument

While I was scouring the internet for a cool video to post for our Turntablist Feature Friday blog entries, I found this new instrument for turntablists called the Scratchophone. The Scratchophone has been in development for years now, and they are finally available for fully-customizable sale only! (Product Details and Q-Bert Demo Video Inside).

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 am I!
