About this project

I want to re-invent the look of Vinyl, and think outside the "box" of what is currently the standard. 

I need your help. The funding is to be used for manufacturing the product and hopefully mass produce it. Most of the cost has been funded by myself to produce a prototype which will be 3d printed. The final designed will be injection molded. To reduce costs, the final models will not be painted, most will be set raw as you will be able to paint it which ever color you chose.This only applies to DIY kits. The copper pipe is copper painted or copper plated, but all part are non conductive for obvious reasons.

The design is meant for anyone who wants a cheap and yet attractive turntable that doesn't break the bank. The more supporters who help fund the project will also help reduce the cost. I want to get the working model to cost less than $150. However the cost per unit still is relatively high when adding costs of materials and components.

Help me re-invent the Revolution of Re-evolution and bring back the wonderful sound of vinyl.

There is no reason turntables have to be so expensive and even less attractive.

People had several ideas and suggestions of what they wanted. Good ideas are good ideas... and I am listening. I will be posting updates on my blog http://drasticshift.blogspot.com/ to keep you posted on the updates and development of the project. If this was software... it would be open source. I encourage any and all people to make any suggestions and keep this project true to itself for everyone to have.
