    New records threw the door looking forward to a ear bleeding session and ping the crossfader snaps wtf

    The mixer in question is stanto sa-12 and ive nothing but problems with it (within the first three months the crossfader snapped,sent back to recordstore and told had to pay £150 to get it sent back from stanton :-x

    Couple of months later the effects knob sticks and needs to be hammered to get to turn off:-x

    And now the crossfader has just snapped:| (altho this has a been a year or two since getting it.

    I just wonder has anyone else had problems with any gear which just seems to keep fucking up.

    I should ave stuck with vestax ahh happy days.

    U WOT M8?
    u can replace the cross fader. and yea id suggest being a bit more delicate with it. just cuz your scratching dont mean u need to beat it....shit the pros dont beat it, they barely touch it

    check ebay for a used pioneer djm 500 or 600
    it wont cost you very much and they're solid mixers
