The Technics SL1210MK7R is a limited edition variant of the popular SL1210MK7. This collaborative effort with Red Bull, which it should be noted is the first of its kind for Technics, is a clear nod to the hip hop and dance culture which the original SL1210MK2 helped to spawn decades ago.
Red Bull’s BC One tournament is a worldwide competition where B-Boys and B-Girls battle for supremacy on the dancefloor. With incredible routines and some of the most spectacular moves around, the spectacle is underpinned by the beats that competitors move to. The Technics SL1200/1210MK2 has been a cornerstone of hip-hop culture, and the Japanese manufacturer wanted to create a special deck in recognition of this, while embracing a current celebration of the sound.
As with previous limited edition SL1200/1210 turntables, the BC One Red Bull deck features cosmetic tweaks to make it stand out from the crowd. For the first time ever, another brand logo is present on the deck. The SL1210MK7R also sports a stunning gold effect tonearm and red head shell. Included in the box are some control vinyl stickers, a BC One slipmat and some Technics and Red Bull stickers as well as the usual accessories.
From a technical perspective, the deck is identical to the SL1210MK7 – performing just as you’d expect a Technics turntable would in the DJ booth. The SL1210MK7R is limited to a quantity of 1000 pieces worldwide, with just 250 destined for the UK – so you’ll need to secure your decks as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
