Our technicians customize a Pro-Ject turntable

Platine Pro-Ject customisée

Have you always wanted to create your own turntable? Well our technicians (almost) did it! Indeed, they decided to customize a Pro-Ject flagship vinyl record player: the 6-Perspex SB turntable.


Why customize a turntable?

First of all, this customized turntable was made as part of a personal project by our technicians. Unfortunately, this is not a service we offer to our customers. However, this can give some ideas to the most DIY enthusiasts 😉

Indeed, if the plinth of your turntable is deteriorated over time or during improper handling, changing it can be an option to give it a “makeover”. This can also be the solution if you want to change the appearance of your vinyl record player: wood finish, matt finish, glossy finish… Up to you and your tastes!

Before customizing a turntable, know that this requires precision work and specific technical skills.


How was the Pro-Ject 6-Perspex turntable customized?

The most characteristic part of the Pro-Ject 6-Perspex SB turntable is certainly its transparent acrylic plinth! To give it a completely new look, a bit more “vintage”, our technicians replaced the plinth of the turntable with a double bonded beechwood plinth. This base has been made according to the same dimensions as the original acrylic plinth.

The different places housing the Pro-Ject 9CC Evolution tonearm, SB motor, or repulsive magnets feet have also been cut in this new plinth to be able to reassemble these components.

Once this cabinetmaking work was complete, our technicians were able to reassemble the different detached parts. They also mounted the Ortofon 2M Bronze cartridge on this turntable.
