About Technics Slipmats
Technics slipmats are very popular with professional and amateur DJs. Technics is a name synonymous with high-quality electronic products including turntables, speakers, and preamplifiers. Technics slipmats are available on eBay in a range of different colours. The idea of a slipmat is that it allows the DJ to manipulate a vinyl record while the turntable continues to revolve underneath. Slipmats are used for scratching, slip cueing, and beatmatching. Beatmatching allows a DJ to change songs while keeping the beat going and preventing an uncomfortable silence between records. Technics slipmats are made from a variety of materials including velvet and rubber. Slipmats are also used as protection when the turntables are not in use. They protect the turntables from dust, which could damage the way that the turntable revolves. When purchasing a Technics slipmat, look for a slipmat that has a glazed underside that allows for slick scratching. Use a Technics slipmat and keep those turntables turning.
