DJ-ing With Tape - TJ-ing?

Recommended Posts

This is doing things the hard way. Looks like he's modified the tape decks so he can pull the tape away from the heads and the capstan with a finger. I don't recognize the tape decks. I believe this is from Russia, so maybe they're Russian. The variable speed slider isn't very common other than as a fast wind control.

Craig, I expected you to to tell us how you used to do the same thing when you had more tape recorders around the house than turntables. ;)

That doesn't make all that much less sense than this... a $450 'vertical' turntable.

 

I think that product is a hedge for when a renewed interest in "vinyl" starts to wane. But then, he has a guitar right next to it. He could attache the guitar to the box and take the act on stage. Cut a disk with backing tracks and play along.
