View Full Version : Technics 1200 MK2's

04-25-2002, 12:46 PM
I have a pair of techinics 1200 mk2's for trade.
These have only been used by myself and one other person, (dj fear when battling against capital-j). They come with 2 brand new stanton grooverider/trackmaster heads, the best there is.
They're brushed silver, and are tuned to stop on a dime. They have upgraded shielded cords and there is no buzzing at all from the outputs.

I used to do alot of djing but it's not practical for me anymore as i'm doing more and more producing. I would like to trade these for a good set of cd turntables of greater or equal value. Reason being is i have alot of tracks i made myself and i can only put them on cd. Pressing them to dubplates just costs me too much.

I can throw in a mixer if you are interested, it's a gemini scratchmaster

Do u have any jungle LP's for sale?

04-25-2002, 09:05 PM
i'll prolly sell off my 250 records once i get some cd turntables
i wanna burn them all to cd when that time comes.

if i could only find a reasonably priced dubplate press i wouldn't sell my babies (my technics) we had such good times scratchin' =)

Hey DJContra, what kinda of gear do you have for producing?

I'm into producing as well, been looking for some local talent to talk and exchange ideas with.

Right now my little ghetto studio consists of:

Dual Pentium 500 w/ SBLive Platinum
Sony Receiver
JBL and Altec Lansing speakers for monitoring
Sony V700 headphones for monitoring
Sennheiser eH2200 headphones for monitoring
Nord Lead 1 Synth
Korg EA-1
Korg ER-1
Korg KAOSS Pad
9 piece Tama Pro drum kit
Harmony Acoustic Guitar
Yamaha Pacifica 112 Electric Guitar
Peavy Rage 158 Amp

I'd love to hear some of your stuff.

I use these headphones for my computor.
This headphone are sick. I love 'em. They worse each cent.

They're definately amazing...it's no wonder why all the big name Dj's use them. They're perfect for bass heads.

Definately worth every penny. They're not that great for long term use though. They feel a bit heavy after awhile. For long term listening the V900's are great. Same sound quality, but much more comfortable. But they don't look as cool. :cool:

yeah yeah, they look damn cool, that was the main reason why I bought them. :)
It is true that they are not very comfortable for long time use.
But they are the best for mixing with those swirls.

But still I love them. Bass is so heavy in them.
Damn I love just love LOUD music(jungle :) ).

I am currently using technics headphones. They're light as a feather and the bass is sooo nice they vibrate on my head during subsonic frequencies. They also have no distortion at all which is awsome because when you're pumping out the tunes, you need to be able to hear the upcomming track =)

Right now my studio is small, but takes up most of my basement
it's basically an AMD 1.4ghz pc with a cdr
I've got a few vintage synth's like a Korg Poly800 and a juno106
but i do most of my stuff through sampling
I've got an akai sampler
dat tape recorder (never use it much)
A huge 32channel mixer (with every eq you can imagine)
2400watt (not rms =/) stereo system with two homemade subwoofer enclosures holding two 18" subs in each cabinet. These things are big enough i can fit inside them.
And the software i use is a wide variety of programs like ACID, impulse tracker, fast tracker, sound forge, and many others.

Most of my work is done in the trackers though since i can't really afford any newer synths, but i can download the banks of instruments and use them in the trackers so it's ALMOST like owning the real thing =)

there's more, but that's basically it.

Mike: i wont sell my technics for money
i basically need some cd turntables as a replacement.
But i would probably sell my technics for $1100 for the pair.
yes they're pretty expensive =)

go to www.torontojungle.com and post you ad there
also you can try www.tribe.ca

Sony MDR V700 is better :moon:

Contra: That a cool setup you have there...vintage gear is the best.

I've been looking for a Juno 106 myself. I'd love to get my hands on a TB303. That piece of kit is killer.

Where can I hear some of your stuff?

SickFinga: are you a producer/DJ as well?

04-26-2002, 07:16 PM
yeah i used to frequent torontojungle.com alot
when i ran a rave a couple years back alot of the dj's were from there. In fact my technics used to be owned by DJ Fear who is an avid member of torontojungle.com

since i stopped going to parties i stopped frequenting the board
the scene just wasn't doing it for me anymore, being overcrowded and full of 14 year olds. (although i started when i was 15 back in '96 hehe but things were different =)

i'll take your suggestion though and ask there too.
