Needs a tort record.
at least the belt changes are easy, the one on my zenith is a pita
and the 8-track player doesn't work
They're a "lifestyle brand" like Gibson was.
that's some wild and crazy stuff! what a hoot!
$3500 retail according to mofi's website.
Honestly, if it wasn't for the fact that I refuse to buy in to the vinyl revival, I'd be tempted.
It looks pretty cool to me.
What's the problem?
OK, price just got posted as I was typing.
Y'all can't have it both ways. First you want Fender to do something different then you want them to not to.
Vinyl revival? I still gots my old ones
mostly Herb Alpert and the TJ brass
Honestly it seemed worth a look as far as turntables go, until I read your post. Puts it right out.
Also, from that photo above, the tone arm looks cheap. Hard to tell without a closer look, but there are one or two super cheap mass produced mechanisms that show up in all the cheapo record players like Crosleys and such.
Just seen this on IG and I couldn’t stop laughing. It looks fantastic but I can’t believe there’s not an anodised or tort control plate.
I knew from the get go it was going to be silly money.
I appreciate a good turntable is expensive, but you’re paying at least 1k more for the affiliation and sunburst. And still no tort!
I had one of those but it “relic-ed” all my records...
That’s gotta be one of the biggest Emperor’s New Clothes sheeple con jobs ever. I was quite happy to kiss vinyl goodbye 30 years ago. If vinyl was so great in the first place, why wasn’t there a great hue and cry over it being phased out back then, even when the mastering/fidelity on the earliest CD’s wasn’t all that great, due to the fact that they were still using the LP masters(with their baked-in limitations)? Over time, labels figured out that oversight, and of course would periodically upgrade everything. What cracks me up about people’s self-righteous embracing of vinyl now, is that it’s still coming from a digital source. I never missed the extra handling, pops, surface noise, diminished frequency range, having to turn it over in 20 minutes, any of that. If anyone wants to prove how ironically hip they are, start collecting 78’s…
Oh yeah, that turntable…a sucker born every minute.
Please. If MoFi used a Crosley tonearm they’d be outed so hard it would probably put them out of business.
False. False. False. And false.
EDIT: In the spirit of harmony and goodwill, I retract about 3 of my Falses.
Is this what you’re looking for?

Drank the koolaid, did ya?
Exactly, but now Gibson is a top guitar company that owns the best amp maker around. Maybe Fender could buy Ampeg from Yamaha?
Anyway they'll all be Music Tribe brands one day...
