Numark Debuts PT01 Scratch Portable Turntable

Debuted at DJ Expo 2016, the Numark portable turntable comes with a DJ scratch switch so you can scratch records anywhere.

DJ’s love scratching records, but it’s enormously difficult to transport an entire turntable setup to a busy city street. And you would probably need some kind of event permit. Enter the portable turntable, a nifty device that turntablists can take anywhere within reason.

Numark is getting into the game by introducing the PT01 Scratch portable turntable with DJ scratch switch. The PT01 is the first portable turntable that has an adjustable scratch switch that enables DJ’s to perform their own custom tricks without the need for an electrical outlet. It has a special non-slip cartridge system, ensuring that the stylus stays in contact with the grooves of the record, even at odd angles. And there is a built in speaker.

Each PT01 Scratch comes with a protective carrying case with an integrated carrying handle. Each purchase includes an AC wall adapter, or there is a place to stick in six D batteries. Put a USB cord in the port to record audio, or make use of the headphone jack for private listening.

The PT01 Scratch takes the portable turntable to the next level, by being the only one to provide a real scratch switch. DJs everywhere are going to love this.”

Available from Numark, the PT01 Scratch portable turntable with DJ scratch switch retails for $129, and is out now.
