Hi, I am new to this forum, and wanted to let anyone out there with a set of the technics sl dz 1200's, that you can get awesome real vinyl platters that totally transform the decks... they are real vinyl instead of that slippery one that technics supply and it transforms your digital turntables into the real feel of analog SL-1200MK2 decks. They are engineered for improved "Scratching Grip" for the Turntablist and "Manipulating Grip" for the Beat/BPM mixing DJ. The slightly added density of real vinyl (0.4 approx) allows for longer "Brake Stops", "Backspins" and improves numerous turntable maneuvers also the Real vinyl absorbs the sweat from your hands and retains it's control for hours of play unlike the original plastic discs that quickly become slippery and dirty.. Check them out at www.senseihaus.com and watch the videos to see how you can move like a ninja and cut like a samurai!
