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 pooface006 ( 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

Автор David Lewis ( назад)
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...................

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

Автор Dylan K. Wahlen ( назад)
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 found some infos about russco tts, here's the url w w w (.)

Автор Stoney3K ( 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 WadeWestTv ( назад)
can i have it

Автор djmaxmv ( назад)

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)

Автор Gareth Neale ( 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,
