Another week, another mod. This post is on the lighter side, and these cosmetic mods are pretty simple to install! Today we are swapping out the stock metal handle for a Jesse Dean Designs carbon fiber one. I also purchased some replacement felt pads of my color choice from JDD, so we will be putting those on as well. I chose to change the PT01 color scheme to yellow and black based on a future mod, stay tuned!
The first mod I installed on my turntable was not a necessary one. It wasn’t the most important to using the gear, but it completed the “PT01 S package” I envisioned in my head. That idea was to have a portable turntable with no extra wires. That means no external speaker, no crossfader attachment, and definitely no media player dangling from my deck.
I may have made a poor financial investment. I should have known when to stop, but once the idea is in my head it’s hard to hold back. So now I’m staring at an inbox full of purchase receipts and delivery tracking info for a bunch of parts to a turntable I’ve owned for all of thirty minutes. Here we go again.
