Turntablist Video Friday: Stanton 150 Turntables

In my opinion, the greatest analog turntables on the market right now are the Stanton STR8-150 (Straight tonearm) and Stanton ST-150 (S-tonearm) decks. They have super-strong motors, sturdy construction, and a familiar layout that works flawlessly. It seems that the DJ's and teachers at the Scratch Academy also think the same as they use the Stanton 150 decks in their everyday setups. Check out the video inside to see what the Scratch Academy DJ's have to say.

Stanton STR8-150 Turntables + SAE Beat & Breaks Battle

My personal turntables of choice are the Stanton ST-150's and for very good reason. They have very high torque motors and they are built like tanks with a pretty solid track record to boot. The folks at the SAE Beat and Breaks Battle also share the same sentiments as the (straight-tonearm counterpart) Stanton STR8-150's will be used as their standard turntable for the National competitions this year.

Coming Soon: Stanton ST/STR Turntable Decksaver Covers

We've been fans of the Decksaver products since the beginning. For those who aren't familiar with them, the Decksaver is a clear shatter-proof cover that rests snugly over DJ equipment to provide protection and to look good while doing it. These covers always fit perfectly over their intended device and they also stand the test of time. Mixware.net (the US distributor for Decksaver) has announced that the Stanton ST-150/STR8-150 has a protective Decksaver on the way and we'll be sure to get a pair in the lab for our own custom turntables.
