Big Spender: Cut Your Own Records


With vinyl records growing in popularity and still renowned for their warm sound, it’s only natural that DJs and producers would want the option to cut their own. For almost $14,000, Vestax’s VRX 2000 lets industrious (and well-heeled) artists live immortalize original sounds on wax, cutting 33 1/3 or 45 rpm records onto special blanks on-demand. Recordings, transferable in real-time using a mixer or power amp connected to an external audio source and cut using a sapphire head, can be monitored and manipulated using integrated EQ controls. A built-in tonearm offers immediate playback, with records resilient enough to be scratched, sampled and passed out as promos on your next European tour. Each unit comes with a free half-day training session, delivered by Vestax employees in their authentic British accents. It may be the closest you’ll come to capturing the feeling of working on your own Abbey Road.
