    I started with a Realistic mixer from Radio Shack, and a pair of used Technics SLD202 I bought off a friend (they were direct drive but the torque was still kinda shit)






    Eventually got a Gemini PMX 7 mixer and a pair of used 1200's (the same 1200s I'm still using 25 years later)

    My 1st pair of turns was actually 1200s.. I knew I'd want em eventually, so figured it'd be more economical to skip buying 'entry level' turns. It felt like a monumental purchase at the time. 1st mixer was a pretty basic Gemini, forget the model name.

    yep... I had seen people using Pro 150s or whatever they were called, also had a Gemini mixer, probably the same one!

    Had nearly the same mixer as you, Bob!

    ...but from another company. I think the product-type was licensed throughout Europe.
    In Germany we had the Monacor MPX-2SC and another variant of it from Conrad Electronics.
    From my memories the mixer was loud and crisp as well as undestroyable - except of the fader - which at the time had to be pimped up.

    hahah yep everyone had that one in my area.

    The x-fader was a piece of shit and made better for a couple of sessions with some WD40 before it completely corroded it

    I think like most, I started with some shitty belt drive tables with a Realistic mixer (couldn't use the crossfader because it was leaking). Then eventually bought MK2's (which i got serviced), then M5G's, then PLX1000's and now the MK7's.

    Needless to say, I love the gear itself but I will never forget the old crappy stuff I used when i first started.

    I had a JVC belt drive deck and amp that I’d bought at ú2 a week from my mums catalogue. Sparkdela had a Goodmans little stack system with a separate deck.. so we went half’s on a Tandy Realistic mixer and took turns looking after them. We both then bought a belt drive Citronic deck each with a twisty pitch adjuster so we had our first set up between us. I then bought a Gemini mixer like Cash Money had and we ended up splitting the Citronics up and having one each and our own other deck for years… Technics came much later on for both of us.
    beats like ice cream, rhymes are like sprinkles...
