    My Stanton 500's lasted 3 years!

    But the sound quality did get worse over time :(

    i find that stanton 500's wear out pretty quickly i.e. after about a year they start to skip, or perhaps thats just me giving them some scratch abuse!

    I think that's what he meant by scratchin' :D

    I used to scratch when I had my Stanton 500's, they lasted about 3yrs as I said.

    Obviously you can't skratch, because you don't have to be heavy handed ;)

    Fool.

    never tried scratchin, never wanted to hehe
    but i do know the concept of it, and sometimes, people can be heavy handed
    ive seen it, and listened to it

    anyways, fact is, scratching dont help the lifespan, i think we can all agree on that hehe :)

    right now if you'll excuse me im off to get my daughter from school
    then I gotta get her ready for her school disco at 4pm
    ahhh, remember school discos? the stepping side to side to the music, and for the lads, getting a run up, and then skidding across the shiny dancefloor on their knees
    oh those were the days *cough*
    anyway, be back later :p

    Hahha, I'd prolly say that any DJ mixing for a year or so would have tried scratchin' at least once.

    Whether it be a small sample, a beat etc.

    Soo.... :p

    yep, Im a mummy hehe
    her name is Charlotte, she'll be 7 on New Years Day

    She's already taking interest in the decks, she often watches me when I'm on them, and shes very partial to Joker stuff at the mo, and Monday Madness on BP, she loves that hehe
    This pic was taken a couple years ago, no scanner anymore so its the last online I have of her
