    Default The Vestax R3 Rotary Mixer

    maybe some of you have heard of the legendary Vestax R3 mixer.

    its pretty rare and you or me will probably never see a live one.

    Not sold on the states but apparently in Japan.

    If you want one its gonna cost ya $4000



    the following is the email I received from vestax


    Hi Devin,

    Thank you for your inquiry. AM&S is no longer the distributor for Vestax, so they forwarded your email to us.

    The R3 is available in Japan and we are able to get it for you for $3,999.99 (plus tax if you are in California).


    Please let me know if you would like to order it, I can send you an order form via email.


    Best Regards,

    Laurent Cohen

    I hate you guys...

    I never even heard or seen a rotary mixer before I saw one on here about a month ago. After that I mapped my MFP in ableton and used the 2 pots as faders and fell in love. I like mixing with rotaries SO much more than faders. Now I want to purchase a real mixer with rotaries. The A&H DB4 with rotaries but thats pretty overkill for someone that has only been mixing one year now...

    You can swap the line faders and effects dry/wet knob for that rotary feel....
    The MUSIC is what matters!

    I have that Mixer from the Vestax store -- we were a Vestax Dealer in NJ before Vestax went under (although we have heard the company will be back in 2015 with new products!) --- so anyways, I bought for our shop - it is an open box. The front panel has a slightly bent corner and a chip on it about 1/8 th the size of a finger nail. Otherwise the mixer is in perfect shape, comes with a original box, instructions, power supply etc ...

    Anyone wants it, I'm thinking 2749.00 USD takes it.

    If anyone is interested in our shop -- we are on eBay at www.DoomSystem.com -- also we are on Amazon

    Lastly -- I have a couple of Vestax PMC-500 mixers -- very nice!!! One brand new and one open box -- anyone interested please email me through eBay. These items are not up in our eBay shop since they are special one time deals.

    We are official dealers for Rane, Allen & Heath Zone, Ortofon, Reloop, KRK, Stanton, Cerwin Vega, Decksavers, DJ Tech ... etc ..

    I saw this convo about the R-3 and had to chime in! Secretly I am hoping nobody buys it and it winds up in my studio
