The entire Pitch Control Assembly gets Very Dirty!

Dirt gets into the Pitch Control by way of the felt slit in the Pitch

Slider Assembly and gets into every part of the Pitch Control...Its a mess!

Pictures of the inside of a Pitch Control Assembly....this could be yours!!

The Pitch Fader Conducting Feet are configured similar to the teeth of a comb to make the best contact possible with a circuit track  it runs up and down as the Pitch Control is manipulated.

What happens is that the fader "Teeth"  pick up all sorts of gunk and debris; this ends up increasing the resistence in the Circuit.

This ends up making it difficult for you to  accurately control the Platter Speed, and reduces your ability to make preceise adjustments in Pitch.

Now on to what we do......

  • We  Dissassemble and Inspect the entire Pitch Control for Mechanical Damage
  • Then, we Clean & Deoxidize all the Contacts and Internal Circuit Boards
  • Next, we remove all traces of Factory Lube and Relubricate with superior TEFLON Lube

  • Then at your request we are able to take out the Zero Detent (Zero Click) for super smooth action just like the new Technics M3D & MK5 series ! 
  • Finally,  we'll even disable the Quartz Lock if you want to put an end the the "Dreaded Dead Zone" ... so called because platter control is compromised between -1 and +1 especially on Technics  SL-1200MK2 models: see FAQ  Why disable the QUARTZ Lock
Now look at the same Pitch Fader & Pitch Fader Track after a thorough cleaning!
