    So what did you end up choosing?
    Or did you go with a DIY option?
    I started with Butter Rugs years ago, and haven't ever switched to anything else.

    If I was doing it again I would probably just buy the cheapest one that says it's for scratching.

    Was it a used (secondhand) turntable? I've never heard of Sl-1200/1210 turntables coming with slipmats, I didn't know that was a thing.

    Only other performance scratching slipmats are Dr Suzuki Tablecloths.

    But yeah...Qbert & Yogafrog signed my 'Rugs and they transfer their skills through osmosis. So I stick with them.
    bored, curious, deaf or just bad taste in music?
    finally a mix by me
    and what's this, another shoddy mix...another dull mix
