No longer in business, the Japanese company, Vestax Corporation, produced musical instruments, turntables and audio equipment from 1977 to 2014. A competitor of Yamaha and Fostex, the manufacturer first designed and produced electric guitars and expanded the product line to include mixers, turntables and controllers. Vestax later added signal processors and CD players to their product inventory. Furthermore, Vestax predominantly catered to the professional needs of disc jockeys while manufacturing signature models for well-known DJs.Vestax DJ Mixers
A professional disc jockey uses a Vestax DJ mixer to transition from one song to the next without anyone noticing. Some of the Vestax mixers are retro examples from the 1980s that DJs use to switch from playing records to CDs. Additionally, most PRO mixers have additional input and output connections plus standard features such as a master level fader and additional channels. Most DJs prefer mixers that have a crossfader to merge one or more audio sources. Lastly, since new mixers are no longer made, make sure the unit you're interested in includes an AC adapter.Vestax DJ Turntables
A Vestax DJ turntable is a necessary piece of equipment for any DJ still playing vinyls. Models include a direct-drive turntable accompanied by a CPU to increase reaction time for optimal performances and reverse play. Some Vestax turntables are enclosed with a case and lid to protect the equipment, making them easier to transport from one location to the next.Vestax DJ Controllers
Some DJs use a controller alongside mixers and turntables that links to audio mixing software such as Serato. Vestex produced a double deck controller that interfaced with personal computers which users implement as a stand-alone system to connect microphones and turntables.
