Did you ever get this old girl up and running? Would love to see some pictures if so. I restore a lot of vintage disco gear myself in my spare time, never got my hands on anything as special as that one though.

real interesting

hi all these were mainly used in night clubs with the joystic, the entertainer in dewsbury had one it was embosed custom built for howard. The idea was you had 4 sets of speakers one in each coner of the room and could swerl the sound around.

I got a Russco studio pro with a russco tonearm at home and it's truly impressive came from Radio antenna 3 in Spain from the late 80s, build, looks, and the sound are amazing.

Wow, those turntables bring back memories for me. I used a pair of those in 1974 when I was interning in a radio station. Those things are practically indestructible. That middle position on the speed selector is neutral. It takes the idler wheel away from the motor shaft and turntable rim, so that it does not develop flat spots on the idler wheel. To replace those idlers these days is quite pricey. You can get the new ones on eBay.

Hello great video I am wondering if you had ever continued to work on this and did you ever make any more videos on this unit

Автор FoulPlayer ( назад)

i've been watching your Mathias restoration and it's fascinating! went googling and found out about DJ Froggy as well, interesting stuff! Been watching your vids for years, your technique on pitching 1200s without touching the platter is definitely inspiring as well, you must live near me somewhere! If theres any chance I can ever come and salivate over your retro gear I'm interested!! Respect

This is a real quality unit built by matamp they still build today to the same exacting standards, it's quite similar to the one i have, that was in just about the same condition when i got it, at least yours as the original turntables, i remember seeing one of these units 30 yrs ago.......................................

your gonna need more than tissue and a sucky end bit as you put it, stick with practice and enjoy you have a way with words :-) let me know if you wanna get rid of that console, i could do with the spares for mine............yep there is another one...................

What happened? No more restoration videos?

I am the current owner of RusscoTurntables (.) com, and if you need motor (vibration) mounts, 33/45 lamps or idler wheels for your Studio-Pro Model B, they are available at our site, along with other parts. If your motors are in good shape, there's no reason the decks can't be rebuilt and running again!

If you can't restore it send it to me I'll fix it up and send it back if, I'll do it for an autograph.

Автор Gavin Moore ( назад)
this would be an awesome thing to update! slip some direct driven turn tables in, those original arms look as if you could just mount the arms from direct drive turntable in them. you could even re solder all the potentiometers to a midi usb board that plugs into a laptop, or just restore it to it former glory either way it would be a sick project. clubs would pay good money for retro stuff like that. keep it up

Автор Dale Hoffman ( назад)

I'm not really confident the decks are going to work. The tonearm control on the right-hand one is completely shot (handle broke off), and the headshell looks to be nackered. I'm not sure if the motor will run...

If you want the quick solution to make this work, get the decks out and drop SL1200's in. But getting the Russco's to work is obviously more challenging.

Автор serruscio ( назад)
it's quite funny to imagine a mobile dj in that period doing his set up with stuff like that XD

Автор dj matr ( назад)
Haha, keep at it, that is a major task mate. Love to see more of these:) Best of luck to you, your cat and the inner workings of that behemoth.

Автор djvjnigel ( назад)

Ah the speakers i used to borrow before i got my own pa were mattamp, thought they seemed pretty old

Автор misterpotatoheaduk ( назад)
That Matamp console would have been a fortune when new,probually the equivilant of a year's wages...or the cost of a new small car back then.

The mixer in that console was the predecessor to the amazing Matamp Supernova,designed by Mat Mathias and london DJ Froggy,reckoned to be the best vinyl mixer ever made,only 300 were ever built,and cost £1500 each back in 1982,

Автор ellaskins ( назад)
Was made for a Mobile DJ and as far as i know there where only 3/4 made like this by Mat Mathias himself!

Автор bigbthedj1 ( назад)

To think, in about in 30/40 years there will be people doing vid's like this about stuff like Sl1200's *hums theme from How We Use To Live*

Автор Sabolch Greba ( назад)

Is it actually worth something? Not that is important cause such gear is not been sold :p
